Noyes tennis courts brand new again

City staff officially celebrated the total renovation of the 12 courts at the Noyes Tennis Complex

(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)  -- It might be toward the end of the tennis season, but once the weather gets nice again, players will have some new courts to play on in St. Joseph.

On Monday, the city officially celebrated the completion of the total renovation of the 12 courts at the Noyes Tennis Complex

Over the course of the spring and summer, the old, beat up cement was removed and replaced with a new, smooth surface.

There are hopes now that with the Noyes courts looking brand new again, the city will again be able to draw some U.S. Tennis Association events back to the city like in years past.

 "We could have done a surface renovation on all of the courts but that wouldn't have gotten to the root of the problem without doing a full demoliton and reconstruction," said Chuck Kempf, director of the St. Joseph Parks & Rec department.

In addition to the 12 courts at the Noyes complex being renovated, the city also repaired courts at Hyde Park and the Norhtside Sports Complex.

The work at Noyes cost $1.4 million and was the final project from the last Community Improvement Project tax that voters passed in 2013.

Just a little bit more sunshine today across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
