The Town of Fuquay-Varina has entered into a Joint Use Agreement with the Wake County Public School System for use of the Fuquay-Varina High School tennis courts. The Joint Use Agreement doubles the current number of tennis courts available to citizens from 6 to 12. The courts, located at the high school, will be available for use by citizens after school hours and on weekends.
The Town’s tennis program, administered through Parks & Recreation, has seen tremendous growth over the last couple of years. Parks & Recreations has partnered with Western Wake Tennis and the North Carolina USTA to expand the programs at all age levels.
