Tennis courts officially closed across county facilities
Two weeks ago we incorrectly wrote that New Castle County's tennis courts had been closed in addition to basketball courts and playground equipment. While that had been under consideration, they were not closed at that time. That changed on Monday, April 6th, when County Executive Matt Meyer extended park facilities closures to include tennis courts, gated dog parks, skating parks and bathrooms in an effort to fight the spread of COVID-19 in the county.
