Tennis court lighting system is dedicated

County supervisors, staff, tennis players and a representative from PG&E gathered on Tuesday to dedicate a restored lighting system at the county park.

The lights were up and working early this year. Some time before Feb. 7, vandals apparently used rocks to break eight lamps.

PG&E gave the county a $2,500 grant to help pay for the repairs.

With expanded daylight this time of year, the local Mariposa Tennis Friends have not been playing under the new lights recently, group organizer Irwin Iida said.

The Friends may hold an evening tennis event under the lights sometime this summer to avoid the daytime heat, Iida added.

Players need to check out a key from county parks and rec staff before using the light system.
