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."

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
