OPEN FOR PUBLIC USE
9 am to 9 pm (except when being used by Vance Middle School and Tennessee High School Tennis Teams)
The Ida Stone Jones Community Tennis Center is a public-private partnership among the City of Bristol, Tennessee, the Bristol Tennessee Schools, the Homer A. and Ida S. Jones Charitable Trust, and YOU!
Funding is in place to build eight state of the art lighted courts at the former site of Central Elementary School. The Courts will be open to the public and maintained as a city park. We now need the community's financial support to properly outfit the courts and build the Bob Helton Building to honor the godfather of Bristol Tennis.
Bob has taught thousands of children and adults over six decades as a teaching professional, and has inspired us all with his legendary success on the courts, winning both single and doubles national championships on all court surfaces over his career, including most recently the 2014 National Champion for ages 75 and older in men's doubles.
