Tennis Complex Study
The Maryland Stadium Authority and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NPCCP) has undertaken a survey effort to obtain feedback regarding a proposed new tennis complex in Prince George's County. The survey seeks candid feedback on which, if any, components of a new tennis complex would best serve both residents and non-residents of Prince George’s County. Public participation in this survey is critical as the input received will allow for informed decisions to be made regarding the potential development of the new tennis complex. We would appreciate 5-7 minutes of your time to complete this survey. All responses will remain anonymous. Thank you for your assistance with this important project.
M-NCPPC is an organization member of the USTA, United States Tennis Association. We also coordinate a Junior Instructional program, Advantage Prince George's with the JTCC, Junior Tennis Champions Center.
Most historians believe that tennis originated in northern France in the 12th century. But at that time, the ball was struck with the palm of the hand, hence the name, jeu de paume (game of the palm). It was not until the 16th century that rackets came into use for hitting the ball and this is when the game began to be called tennis.
