Tennis Courts Building Nearing Completion

Boosters pay for new facility.
MIDDLEBURY –A small shed once stood on the Middlebury Community Schools tennis courts property, big enough to store some equipment, but that was about all.
Seeing a greater need not only for Northridge tennis athletes, but also for visiting teams, the tennis boosters raised funds for a new building. With the blessing of the school administration, the leadership of Director of Buildings and Grounds Jeff Palmer, and construction efforts of DJ Construction Service Group, a new 2,400 sq. ft. multi-use building now stands by the tennis complex.
Robb Huber, DJ Construction service projects manager, said Palmer contacted him to have DJ build the multi-purpose building.
“Previously, there was nowhere to change, nowhere to serve concessions, and nowhere to store equipment beyond the basics,” said Huber.
“The new building has changing rooms and storage as well as a defined place to serve concessions. This allows those involved in the tennis programs at Middlebury Community Schools to host visiting teams and their families in friendlier, more accommodating ways.”
Huber said DJ Construction has serviced the school system for many years and worked with Palmer since 2011.
Up next for Middlebury Schools and DJ’s service group: Enclosing an entrance at Heritage Intermediate Schools.
