The Northwest Louisiana Community Tennis Association hosted a grand opening of the Paz Pavilion at the Natchitoches Tennis Courts Sept. 14. The pavilion is named after Willie Paz, who has helped build the tennis community in Natchitoches. Nearly 100 community members helped celebrate the opening.
“We have to get tennis going in our community just like other communities around the state,” said Willie Paz, director for the NWLACTA. “That’s my goal.”
Mayor Lee Posey believes that the opening of this complex will benefit the community in a multitude of ways.
“We’re trying to get something we lost back,” the mayor said. “It’ll help us bring more people to Natchitoches and have them stay overnight.”
