Four new tennis courts opened in 2019 at the Finberg Recreation Complex located at 19 Bishop Street in Attleboro.
The courts will open April 1st of each year weather permitting. Two courts will close the 4th Monday of November or at the first forecast of snow - whichever comes first. However, we will keep the remaining two courts open year round for play, weather permitting. We ask that you please do not shovel snow or ice in order to play as this may damage the courts.
A Ribbon Cutting was held on October 13, 2019 as four new courts were christened. Honorary ribbon cutters were Fred Bartek, the city's first and most tenured Recreation Director; Paul Perry, longtime chairman of our annual tennis tournaments; Dr. Robert O'Donnell, an avid but quiet supporter of Attleboro Recreation; Mayor Paul Heroux; Council Vice-President Heather Porreca; Leo Johnson, Recreation Commission Chairman; and Cliff Danue, Recreation Foreman.
In addition to current Recreation Chairman Leo Johnson, all former Chairmen joined us. This included Bob Lepper, Dr. Richard Brousseau and Mark Cuddy. In total they have served 52 consecutive years as Chair of the of the Recreation Commission. We are blessed!
