The Mary Jean Wampler Tennis Facility at Lebanon High School is currently covered in snow, but by this spring it could be covered by tennis enthusiasts from the community. The city and the R-3 School District are working on an agreement to let the public use the facility when not in use by the schools.


The city of Lebanon and Lebanon R-3 School District are just a meeting away from solidifying an agreement that will allow the public to use the recently renovated Mary Jean Wampler Tennis Facility at Lebanon High School.

The Lebanon R-3 Board of Education heard the first reading of the agreement during its Thursday night meeting. It is expected to vote on the agreement at the February meeting.

“The district is very excited about the partnership,” said Lebanon R-3 Assistant Superintendent Brad Armstrong. “It’s a win for both the district and the community.”

Under the agreement, the city will donate $29,500 to the cost of the renovation of the Mary Jean Wampler Tennis Facility and in return, the facility will be open for public use after school hours and when the courts are not being used for high school matches.

The agreement has already been approved by the Lebanon Park Board, which donated the money, and the Lebanon City Council.
