BOISE -- Even after the Davis Cup leaves town, it will continue to leave its mark on Boise. The goal of the Idaho Tennis Association and US Tennis Association is leave a legacy in cities that play host to the Davis Cup. The USTA is donating $25,000, which the City of Boise will match. This money will be used to renovate two courts in Ann Morrison Park, and build four kid-sized courts.

The courts are sized for kids, so they're smaller; they make it easier for the kids to move around, play with larger balls, and have a more successful experience learning to play tennis. So the goal is to get kids started and playing and enjoying it, and then developing a love of tennis for a lifetime, said Amy Stahl, with Boise Parks and Recreation.

Stahl said these will be the only courts in the state built specifically for kids eight and under.
