The Domus' Chester Addison Community Center in Stamford is celebrating its newly renovated tennis court.  The community center's director says the court was in great need of improvements, and wouldn't be usable without them.

"If you can imagine, down the middle -- the service line there -- it was filled with weeds that were about a foot and a half  to two feet tall," said Michael Hyman.  "So there were cracks all over the place.  The only way to save it at that point, if we let it go any further, was to have bulldozed it and we've saved it."

He says the now functional court will introduce youth to the sport, who may not otherwise experience it.  

"This court is so important to that progress that we're going to be able to make with the kids and the development of a Stamford-wide youth tennis program for our underserved children," said Hyman.  

The center will provide tennis lessons for over 165 children involved with its program, using the court 3 seasons out of the year. 

Hyman says the remodeling was made possible by public and private funding in partnership with the Stamford Youth Tennis Academy, 100 Black Men, Beacon Cocoran Jennison -- the developer of the property -- and the city of Stamford.
