Fifty or so people showed up to a cleared section of land between south Campbell and Gordon streets to officially break ground on the city of Camden’s new tennis complex Tuesday afternoon. The 4 p.m. ceremony featured Mayor Alfred Mae Drakeford, other members of city council, city staff, architects, contractors and others using golden-colored shovels to break up a mound of dirt at the 12-acre site north of York Street. The new, state of the art complex will feature a total of 16 tennis courts, two of which will be stadium courts, which will have canopied bleachers for spectators.
