The Marysville City Council voted 7-0 to fund 8 new tennis courts for $400,000. The plan is to have the city pay for the whole thing and then have the school district pay the city $150,000, over the course of 10 years, and the tennis committee will raise private funds, along with a grant from the U.S. Tennis Association in the amount of $100,000 to pay for the other 2 courts. Currently, Marysville has 6 courts, but with the addition of 2 courts, the city could attract large tennis tournaments, including regional and possibly even state tennis tournaments.
