THE AGREEMENT WITH DANIEL ISLAND
What is “the Agreement” with Daniel Island?
- A formal agreement of joint intent between the Daniel Island Company and United States Court Tennis Preservation Foundation has been put in place. In it, the Daniel Island Company is providing the land at no cost to Charleston Court Tennis and access to the court on the property of the Daniel Island Club (the Club).
- Once built by Charleston Court Tennis, the Daniel Island Club will operate the court as a Club asset. This includes all operating and maintenance expenses associated with the court.
- Should anything happen to the Club, such as bankruptcy or change of ownership, the court will be turned over to Charleston Court Tennis including the land for the preservation of the court and continuing operation by Charleston Court Tennis.
How do I know my money will be well spent?
- Contributions for the project will be accepted by the US Court Tennis Preservation Foundation, and be tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. The USCTPF will support the construction of the facility for its use as a Court Tennis Hall of Fame and a venue for the development of the sport. The Foundation will distribute funds during the construction period at the direction of the Charleston Court Tennis as the lead for the project. In addition, the management team (click here) will be overseeing the progress and quality of the project.
Adding real tennis to the already world-class facilities of the Daniel Island Club is inspired. Having helped to design and run courts and clubs in Australia, France, the US and UK, I am certain that this new court and club will be an outstanding success. I am delighted to lend my enthusiastic support to the Charleston Court Project. Chris Ronaldson
