The former Four Seasons Tennis and Health Club will reopen with the name, The Four Season Racquet Club. The club will have seven outdoor tennis courts, including five with lights for night matches. Pickleball will also be offered at the facility. “Basically, all we’re doing is painting the courts, cleaning up outside, but there’s a lot of cleaning and stuff to do,” says Brian Previaty, owner of The Four Season Racquet Club.
Grayson County residents and tennis lovers may remember the former Four Seasons Tennis and Health Club in Sherman, Texas, KXII reported.
The facility was most recently used as a warehouse for cosmetics, but now the club is getting a makeover.
Tennis enthusiasts want to restore the place to its former glory and call it The Four Season Racquet Club, KXII reported.
“I think it’s a great place,” said Scott Whiteman, the tennis director at The Four Season Racquet Club. “A growing place, but my main thought was we can bring this club back to life.”
“Basically, all we’re doing is painting the courts, cleaning up outside, but there’s a lot of cleaning and stuff to do,” added Brian Previaty, owner of The Four Season Racquet Club.
The club will have seven outdoor tennis courts, including five with lights for night matches, KXII reported.
“Wow, tennis teaches a lot,” said Nadia Burgess, who runs Fist Bump Tennis Academy and plans to teach at the club. “I love tennis because it brings a lot of characters together. It teaches discipline. It teaches you how to be part of a team, and it’s a sport for life.”
On top of all the tennis courts, the club will also offer one of the most popular sports right now, pickleball, KXII reported.
Some of the world’s most experienced professionals plan to take to the courts.
“I ended up representing South Africa in two world cups,” said Burgess to KXII.
“We’re going to have softer programs for the younger kids, but we want to establish this as a really solid tennis academy where kids can come and train and eventually go on to play professional, hopefully, college scholarships,” said Whiteman.
Club owners said the first serves could come in the next month or two, KXII reported.
“I envision families, kids laughing, kids having people to look up to,” said Burgess.
