Seaman invests in new indoor tennis facility at City of Wooster, US


Fabric manufacturer Seaman has invested in the construction of a new indoor tennis facility and an outdoor corporate and recreational area in the City of Wooster, Ohio, US.

Named as Aspen Racquet Club, the tennis facility will include six courts with a capacity to host the United States Tennis Association (USTA) tournaments and is expected to be opened later this year.

The company is also planning to donate around ten acres of surrounding land for the development of the corporate and community recreational park.

Seaman chairman Richard Seaman said: "The Aspen Racquet Club is being designed to meet the needs of the existing tennis community and to develop the full potential of the sport in this area. 

“The club will feature well-appointed locker rooms and a pro shop. A furnished observation mezzanine level will include a workout facility and a room for exercise classes, as well as plenty of space to relax.

"We have decided to make the investment in six courts rather than four or five. This will allow the club to maintain court availability for club members.”

"The Aspen Racquet Club is being designed to meet the needs of the existing tennis community and to develop the full potential of the sport in this area."

It will also feature energy efficient lighting systems, private lessons and clinics by qualified tennis professionals. Programmes for youth development will also be available. 

Designed for tennis players from across north-east Ohio, the facility is expected to host college and various inter-club tennis tournaments.

Intended for various business associates, the corporate recreational park is designed to include walking paths, pavilions, WiFi accessibility, workstations, benches and a small pond.

Freeman Building Systems is the general contractor for the tennis facility, while Environmental Design Group will assist in the park proposal.
