Rennebohm Park Tennis Courts Reconstruction
The City of Madison Parks Division is rebuilding the tennis courts at Rennebohm Park!
Work to begin reconstructing the west set of courts began on 9/1/2022 and wrapped at the end of October.
NOTE: the existing set of three (3) courts on the west side was demolished by Parks Construction staff the week of 6/20/22 in advance of the reconstruction contract which was bid through Public Works.
A community information meeting to discuss the project was held on March 10, 2022 online via Zoom. At this meeting City staff presented information on the maintenance history of the courts, existing conditions and limiting factors and proposed reconstruction work and timeline. Information from the session, including the presentation and a summary of the questions and answers (including those received prior to the session) can be found at the links, below.

The existing courts at the park were originally constructed in 1976 (west side) and 1981 (east side) and were rebuilt by mill & overlay in 1990. Following the rebuilding, each set of courts has received, to date, six rounds of crack repair & resurfacing with diminishing returns following each round of repair. The fencing at the courts is also in poor condition - and lacks accessibility features at the doorways. Parks has received frequent requests over the years to improve the condition of the courts from user groups and individuals and included funding requests as part of its capital budget to fully rebuild the courts.
