McMinnville officials will be considering bids Tuesday night to resurface tennis courts at McMinnville Civic Center. Bids received range from $13,000 to $17,000.
Bids went out to renovate every one of the Civic Center tennis courts — four outdoor courts and one indoor court.
Custom Recreation from Hendersonville bid $13,855, with Tennis Court Construction Company from Nashville bidding $16,240, and Competition Athletic Surfaces Inc. from Chattanooga bidding $17,590.
Officials can accept the “lowest but best” bid. Custom Recreation comes highly recommended.
“I recommend them highly as a vendor,” said Al Corlew of Metro Nashville Parks and Recreation. “They are knowledgeable, proficient and courteous. They do an excellent job whether it’s tennis courts, playgrounds, picnic shelters, etc.”
Metro Nashville has used Custom Recreation as a tennis court/ playground vendor for over 25 years.
“They also provide great service after the job is done,” said Corlew.
Greg Wanamaker, interim director of McMinnville Parks and Recreation, says resurfacing will be scheduled to not interfere with scheduled games.
“Outdoor courts will need to be scheduled for March or April,” he said. “The indoor court could be started as soon as possible keeping in mind the Winter Tennis League that plays in January, February and March.”
Officials will be considering the bids during a Parks and Recreation Committee meeting scheduled Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
