On April 26, 2019, Mayor Richard S. Goldberg cut the ribbon to re-open the Hawthorne tennis courts after installation of a new court surface. The new surface, constructed of interlocking high-impact polyprolylene tiles, is resistant to the cracking that has plagued the courts after previous, traditional resurfacing. If damaged, individual tiles can easily be replaced.
The four courts are used by the Hawthorne Board of Recreation Tennis Program, the Hawthorne High School tennis team and the general public. As part of this project, two of the courts have been striped to be used for pickle ball as well.
This $128,000 project was funded in part by a grant of $50,000 from the Columbia Bank Foundation, and in part by a separate $50,000 grant of Passaic County Open Space funds by the Board of Chosen Freeholders.
