A planned renovation at Reston’s Glade tennis courts has been rescheduled for next year.

The project, which was originally scheduled to begin this year, has been pushed to next year, Reston Association announced yesterday (Monday).

The courts reopened this week after the court surface was reconditioned and new court lines were installed. The old layer of the clay was removed, replaced and reconditioned.

The change was prompted by limited contractor availability, according to RA Chief Operating Officer Peter Lusk.

“The pool of contractors that can complete this work is small and are booked through the end of this calendar year,” Lusk said. “RA contemplated starting the project in late 2023, through 2024, but pausing the project for cold weather is not considered best practice.”

Staff are working with the contractor to determine dates for next year. Once it begins, the project would take between three and five months.
