Kirby Park Members and
Area Tennis Players
From: Bill Eydler, Tennis Director
nets are up on all ten courts. I want to welcome back all the players who have supported local public park tennis and invite
all players to become members for 2018.
The official season will run from May through September.
Kirby Park is centrally located
and offers ten recently renovated courts with quality nets, divider curtains and rol-drys. The 10 courts have been resurfaced
with the US Open blue and green colors. We have a new banking board on court 10, compliments of Dr. Das and Stan Marchak.
Our new King's College/Kirby Park clubhouse has been installed and recently carpeted. Upgraded lighting is planned by
the City in the near future with a matching fund
grant from USTA/MiddleStates.
Kirby Park Tennis has been and continues to
be the hub of local competitive and social tennis, it's WHERE THE ACTION IS!
Park is the home of the 2008 and 2011 Men's 4.0 Sectional Championship USTA teams, home of the 1985 Men's National Champions,
home to PIAA and District 2 playoffs, home to the 2007 Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Individual Tournament, and home to
both the King's College Monarch Tennis, Coughlin High School Tennis, and Holy Redeemer High School tennis. There are always
plenty of activities for players of all levels. We have plenty of courts, so no waiting around to play.
Programs include: USTA Leagues, tournaments, group and private lessons and junior camps.
Kirby Park has been home over the years of many highly successful USTA Level of play teams. Our Junior Tennis Camp
