Announcing the CP&R Junior Tennis League

You asked, we answered! For years we have been asked, "Why do you guys not have a year round tennis program or league for kids?" Today is the much anticipated day for the tennis enthusiasts in the community.

CP&R will hold an interest meeting for its Junior Tennis league on Tuesday, July 8 at 5pm at the Cullman Wellness & Aquatic Center. All interested participants, parents, or individuals are encouraged to attend. The tennis league will start with ages 12 & under, and plans are in the works to expand the program through age 18, and possibly to adult ages in the near future. The program will be a year-round addition to the parks and recreation department, with lessons, practices, and games being held throughout the year. The program will be an affiliate of the United States Tennis Association (USTA).

Coaches, volunteers, and other support are needed and are encouraged to attend the July 8th interest meeting. For more information on the tennis league, contact Ca…

The Midnight Run was established 22 years ago in 1992 to serve as a fundraiser for the parks and recreation department. Many races across the country are held for various causes, and one of the most asked question we have each year is "where do the proceeds for the Midnight Run go?" People often do not get fired up about running for their local parks and recreation department, and are instead looking for races that might make more of an impact. There are plenty of great races around the area that all support great causes, but the Midnight Run is no different.
