Tennis Club In Christopher Morley Park

Written by Marilou Giammona Thursday, 08 August 2013 00:00

Visitors to Christopher Morley Park may be witnessing the dawn of a new tennis experience. As part of Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano’s initiative to launch public/private partnerships, Christopher Morley Tennis, a private club owned and directed by local pro Cory Parr, is nearing the final stages of construction.

 

“We won the bid to build a tennis center at Christopher Morley Park,” Parr said. 

 

The facility will be housed on the south end of the park, at 500 Searingtown Rd. in Roslyn. Parr had originally hoped to open in September, “but realistically right now we are guaranteeing a January 1 opening,” he said, adding that he may be ready for a “soft opening” with five courts in October or November.

Gaffney started playing in youth sports leagues as a kid before entering high school, where his natural athletic ability started to impress both students and adults throughout the school district. He got a jump-start to playing high school sports for the Mineola Mustangs when he was brought up to play point guard for the junior varsity boy’s basketball team as an eighth-grader.
