Lovelace Tennis Court Windscreens

The City of Evanston has approved the resurfacing of the Lovelace Park tennis courts, which we anticipate will be completed this summer. 

The City of Evanston, the Evanston Community Tennis Association (ECTA), and E-town Tennis look forward to using these courts for future tennis events. 

To complete the new court project, we would like to add 9-foot windscreens. We need to fundraise an estimated $2,500 in order to make this happen. Please consider making a donation!

--- Please Note: UPDATE As of October 2018  ---

Dear Donors,

We greatly appreciate your generosity towards the Lovelace Tennis Court Windscreens project.
Unfortunately, the City of Evanston has postponed Lovelace Park capital improvements until
next year due to budget constraints.

The Evanston Community Tennis Association (ECTA) is committed to pursuing windscreens for
the newly paved courts upon their completion in 2019 and will keep you informed of the status
of this initiative. 

Given this change in the city’s timeline, we understand if you would like a refund now and the
opportunity to contribute at a later date—please contact [email redacted] if this is your
preference. If you do not wish for a refund at this time, please know that your donation is secure
and earmarked for use only on windscreens.

Again, thank you for your contributions. We regret the unexpected delay in this project.
