Williams College Redoing Varsity Tennis Courts

Williams College
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- The varsity tennis courts at Williams College are undergoing a large-scale renovation project.
The plan of the Torrence M. Hunt courts is to remove all of the components of the six original competition courts to make them more sufficient to play on and maintain. 
"I'm most excited about breaking in the new courts for our first home-match of the season this spring," head women's coach Anik Cepeda said.

The new courts will be post tension concrete, which will allow for the courts to be better able to withstand weather conditions and maintain a better surface.
