Four tennis courts located beside the Whitesburg Municipal Swimming Pool were recently refurbished with funding from the Letcher County Fiscal Court, the City of Whitesburg, the Letcher County School System, and a $5,000 grant from the United States Tennis Association. Letcher County Parks and Recreation purchased new net posts and nets.

The $40,000 project will make it possible for Letcher County Central High School to host a regional tennis tournament.

Letcher County Parks and Recreation Director Derek Barto said he is going to start summer youth tennis programs in conjunction with the United States Tennis Association.
