Community Meeting Planned to Discuss Improvements to Audubon Park Tennis Courts
On Tuesday, December 3, and Tuesday, December 10, Audubon Commission will host public engagement sessions regarding Audubon Tennis as part of the Audubon Park Master Plan process that began in 2018.
Tennis infrastructure, facilities, and programing will be discussed during these public input sessions in Audubon Team Room from 6 to 7 p.m.
Audubon is seeking community feedback during these meetings, and those interested in the project are also able to provide input in the form below.
“There was much enthusiasm surrounding tennis during the last set of Audubon Park Master Plan public input sessions, so we are excited to continue the conversation about the future of the Audubon Park Tennis Courts,” said Audubon’s Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and General Counsel Rebecca Dietz. “These courts have been a part of the community for over 100 years, and we are eager to discuss their next chapter.”
Audubon Tea Room is located at 6500 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70118.

Lights would be nice and upgraded bathroom facilities
But there are limited "public"clay courts on the Eastbank .I count 29 between City Park, Audubon and Atkinson Stern Center. Audubon, although not free, is public and anyone can play, unlike some of the other facilities (i.e. country clubs) which are cost prohibitive for most people as well as not being open to all in membership.
This time we shouldn’t play “Christmas” by formulating our wishes only. What ever is planned to do costs money and nobody talks about it so far. It certainly would be helpful to get Tulane and ATC in one room that all wishes can be recognized, valued and as much as possible fulfilled. Tulane is the biggest employee in town with a great tennis team. They certainly have they own agenda. There is no reason not to enter in a constructive dialogue among all parties.
P.S. Lights would be a plus. : )
Enhanced bathroom facilities , some additional parking and lights for night play would all be welcomed
