A big thank you to the folks at the Tehachapi Unified School District and Tehachapi Valley Recreation & Park District that have opened the Jacobsen Middle School tennis courts for public use. My family has used the courts several times since their opening, and are thoroughly enjoying have a convenient, clean and free place to play tennis!

Prior to moving to the area, our family often played recreational tennis, but with no court options in town, we had to give it up. This has been something sorely lacking in Tehachapi, and we really appreciate having the courts made available.

Kudos to Kirk Gilbert and Kelly Patterson of TUSD, and to Corey Torres at TVRPD for making this a reality. This is a great example of what can happen when people and organizations work together to make our community a better place to live. Thanks from all Tehachapi tennis fans!
