4.24.14 Woods Park Tennis Center
|Kevin Heim, Todd Peterson, and Marg Donlan Friends of Woods Tennis Campaign|
When Kevin Heim arrived in Lincoln in 2008 to become the new executive director at Woods Park Tennis Center, he saw a tennis facility nestled within beautiful Woods Park, along with a swimming pool, baseball field, walking paths, artwork and a playground.He also saw potential.
Not only potential at Woods Tennis, but throughout the community. He saw tennis courts at Lincoln's parks and public high schools, all within walking distance of neighborhoods, kids and families. "We set our sights on expanding our programming not only at Woods, but throughout the community," Heim said. "We looked for ways to make tennis accessible to everyone, regardless of their background. With all the courts around town, we saw an opportunity to take the game to the community so that everyone could take a racquet to a nearby court and play."
While Woods Tennis serves all ages and abilities, Heim's vision started with young people. "Once kids are hooked, they're more apt to make tennis a lifetime activity," said Heim, a tennis professional who built a successful tennis program in Milwaukee before coming to Lincoln.Heim found support from a small and mighty group of tennis enthusiasts called the Friends of Woods Tennis, which started laying the groundwork for a more viable facility in 2007.
