Foundation Joins Spencer Love Tennis Center Capital Campaign
The foundation has joined forces with local tennis advocates to support the planned $4 million expansion of the City-owned Spencer Love Tennis Center.
The effort will nearly double the size of the popular complex, enabling it to lure more large tournaments. Once completed, it is expected to bring a projected $17.1 million in sports tourism revenue to Greensboro.
Please visit the Spencer Love Capital Campaign website for more details about this exciting project.
