BAY HEAD — The Bay Head Board of Education announced at its meeting May 15 that it has been awarded a $65,000 grant to help repair the tennis courts and possibly add pickleball courts.
The tennis courts, last repaired in the early 2000s, are in need of major renovation. The cost of the project was quoted up to $300,000 but will not begin until the 2024-25 school year, if approved.
A timeline and budget for the project will be discussed once the grant is received. The tennis courts will remain open to the public for tennis and pickleball under hours set by the board. Residents can reserve the courts on Community Pass.
At the previous meeting, three facility grant applications were approved and have since been submitted.
Two of the grants, which the board expects to receive, will fund repairs for out-dated parts of the school building, including the permanent repairs to the 1966 crawl space and replacing the bricks on the 1933 exterior. The third grant, if awarded, will fund the addition of a pre-K program in the library.
