Keswick Hall Unveils Newly Completed Tennis Facility as Part of the Hotel's Multi-Million Dollar Restoration

USA, Keswick, Virginia. September 14, 2020

Molly and Robert Hardie, owners of Keswick Hall, Charlottesville's most storied and beloved hotel property, have just introduced the complex's newly renovated tennis facility. The fully restored courts are already being enjoyed by the members of the prestigious Keswick Club and are certain to be a popular attraction for guests of the hotel, upon completion of the property's full renovation.

"It was so important for us to partner with Har-Tru and Tennis Courts, Inc. - not only because they too are Virginia-based companies - but because we are trying to provide our guests with a truly distinctive experience when they stay with us at Keswick Hall," said Molly Hardie. "Clay courts offer a multitude of benefits from a physical perspective to improving playability - and to the simple aesthetics of a beautiful looking court", she concluded.

A total of seven courts were completed by Har-Tru and Tennis Courts, Inc. The first two were the property's hard courts that were converted to Har-Tru's All-Weather Claytech European Red Clay Courts, a hybrid surface that combines the luxury of the year-round play of a hard court with the beauty and playability of a clay court. Next, two pre-existing sub-irrigated green clay courts were converted to red clay, bringing the first European sub-irrigated red clay courts to the region. The most technically advanced work was on the three pre-existing above-ground irrigated green courts that were rebuilt to include Har-Tru's state-of-the-art HyQ sub-irrigation system, as well as the European Red Clay. HyQ provides the most consistent clay court experience possible while using less water and decreasing the surface material loss from wind and erosion.

"Combining the luxury and beauty of red clay with the responsible innovation of HyQ sub-irrigation - plus the same lighting system that is in use at Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York -- enables us to offer one of the most desirable and exclusive tennis facilities in the country," enthused Robert Hardie. "We are so excited to make these amazing courts available to our club members and future guests alike."

Sales & Marketing: Playing the Long Game

During an economic downturn, it is tempting to slash marketing budgets to make up for lost revenue. But smart hoteliers play the long game, knowing that companies who stay engaged with their customers will be the first to benefit from a rebound. Therefore, now is the time to renew and revamp sales and marketing strategies in order to be ready for what lies ahead. For example, this is a perfect time to refresh website content, social media and SEO.  The same for hotel blogs where content can be updated to give customers inspirational ideas as they begin to travel and meet again. Multimedia assets should also be revised with new photo/video shoots that provide accurate information about how setups, room configurations, and onsite offerings have changed to accommodate safer meetings and social distancing. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the sales and marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting in anticipation of a recovery in 2021.
