Tennis players from Enterprise are still at least one week away from being able to get back on the two tennis courts at the city park. Rogers Asphalt of La Grande laid new asphalt on the grounds this week and Enterprise Public Works Director Larry Estes said that city crews would not replace the nets, poles and fence - items that had to be removed for the resurfacing work - until next week. Estes did not know Monday who was responsible for striping the court. He said he would again speak with Bill Kirby of the Wallowa County Tennis Club to determine that matter.

The old court was torn out Aug. 9 as part of a project expected to cost $31,110. The previous asphalt surface was laid in the late 1970s or early 1980s, Estes said, and was covered a number of times by a plexipave coating. He said that neither the city, which owns the courts, nor the tennis club, presently has funds to plexipave the surface this year.
