SOMERVILLE, NJ – Tennis enthusiasts or anyone who has an interest in learning the game should gather the tennis gear in preparation for the opening of the Somerset County Park Commission’s Green Knoll and Colonial Park Tennis Centers . Eighteen state-of-the-art, outdoor, all-weather courts with acrylic surfaces that provide extra traction, will be available daily beginning April 1.

Pickleball players can paddle-up at Colonial Park Tennis Center, where the tennis courts are striped for pickleball and portable pickleball nets are available at the facility.

The public should take advantage of the modern tennis courts, convenient hours, and the opportunity for fun exercise. Staying physically active, such as playing tennis, can help participants prevent and manage heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and diabetes, as well as support weight management, reduces stress, and improve one’s sleep and overall mental health, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
