Tennis will flourish again in Cookeville with the help of resurfacing our community courts at Putnam County Park and Recreation Center. Dreaming big of state-of-the-arts recreation facilities begins with caring for the facilities we have now.
Cookeville and the surrounding regions are experiencing growth at faster paces than ever before. According to the Highlands Economic Partnership (HEP) more than 2,700 new jobs have been created in four years and regional capital investments in area projects of over $220 million in three years. The regions pathways to prosperity focus on quality of life. “Quality of life is a critical component in each of our projects in economic development. Companies are always interested in finding out where their employees will live, shop, and play. We are constantly marketing our community’s lifestyle amenities as part of the reason why businesses should locate and expand here”, says Stephen Crook, Highlands Vice President of Economic Development.
The Upper Cumberland Community Tennis Association (UCCTA) will play a big part in answering that question. There is no better activity to enjoy from age four to 84. The constant movement burns calories, builds muscle, strengthens bones, increases flexibility and coordination. The health benefits are obvious but the social benefits can be even greater. Building life-long friendships while sharing the success of every point won is what keeps me coming back for more.
