NEW HITTING WALL

Court #13 at Liberty Park now has a dedicated hitting wall.  We have extensively cleaned, fixed, and painted an existing concrete wall (with an additional net line) for the public to practice their game in a more private setting.

Benefits of using a practice wall include:

  • Getting back into the game

  • Supplemental practice to private and group lessons

  • Cardio & Fitness (put in your earbuds & listen to some of your favorite music while practicing your strokes)

  • One, Two, or Family Practice

  • Size: This wall is huge!  It is almost 60 feet wide and 12 feet tall. 

  • Quiet:  Being made of concrete, this wall is quiet, not disturbing play on other nearby courts.

RATE: Court Fee
