High School Court Lights:
Completed! Currently the 3 courts closest to Nahatan St. are user-operated. Press the button at the court entrance and the lights will remain on for 1 hour. A flashing light will give notice when the lights are about to go off, repress the button for an additional hour.
The lights can be activated as early as dusk and used until 10:00 PM.
To expand our hard-court offerings, we recommended the installation of pickleball courts at the Sheehan tennis court site. Pickleball court development is currently on hold while the Town and School Department analyze site options for the new elementary school building project under consideration. Determination of whether the Sheehan site is a suitable location for the pickleball court complex will be made based on final site selection for the new elementary school building project.
Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the country. Many Westwood residents travel to neighboring communities to make use of pickle ball courts. Pickleball has also been adopted in the Westwood school physical education curriculum. Pickleball is very similar to tennis with two primary differences;
- pickle ball racquets and balls are used and
- the playing area is smaller.
These modifications make for a less physically rigorous yet equally enjoyable game.
Tennis Hitting Walls:
The new tennis hitting walls have been installed at Downey and the high school tennis complex. We hope you enjoy these new court amenities!
As you may have seen, the tennis courts at the high school have been repaired and resurfaced. A special purpose top coat paint provides increased foot traction. We have also refurbished the Downey tennis courts. In addition to crack sealing and resurfacing, center net anchor straps have been installed to give the center net its proper height. The new hitting walls are constructed of materials that enhance return bounce, absorb noise, and can withstand New England weather.
The Select Board approved the Recreation Department proposal for repair and refurbishment of the Morrison Park basketball court. The work is complete and included crack sealing, painting of the court surface, and replacement of the perimeter fencing.
