We were thrilled to see the signs go up for the Ridgewood Swim and Tennis Club Swim Team Registration. They will be held tomorrow, Saturday, April 9th from 10-2 at the Ridgewood Club.
Ridgewood Swim and Tennis experienced a decrease in appearance and services over the winter months. But with new owners at the end of March, there have been many improvements. We have seen some improvements in the landscaping and some activity on the tennis courts, as well. There are rumors that cable will be restored to all of the televisions soon.
Ridgewood Swim and Tennis sits in the heart of the neighborhood of Ridgewood, located just north of Greensboro city limits in Guilford County, NC.

Yesterday was the grand opening of yet another feature of the Guilford Courthouse Military Park, known locally as Battleground Park. The Nathanael Greene Revolutionary War Library is now open for business!
The Nathanael Greene Revolutionary War Library is located on New Garden Road directly across from the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park Visitors Center. According to the News and Record, it is only one of two libraries in the Southeast which specialize in information about the southern campaign of the Revolutionary War. It is open to the public and is hoped to be an excellent resource for local students, scholars and researchers.
If you’ve never visited the Guilford Courthouse Military Park, now is a great time to plan a visit to this Greensboro treasure. The visitor center is free and has two great movies that explain the historical significance of the Revolutionary War battles that took place here. There is also a small museum and a paved walking path so you can actually stand where the battles took place. The approximately two-mile loop leads you through mostly wooded areas and features some challenging hills so it is very popular with walkers, runners and bicyclists.
History will come to life this weekend In Greensboro at the Guilford Courthouse Military Park, known locally as Battleground Park. To commemorate the 230th anniversary of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, FREE events will be held on Saturday, March 12 and Sunday, March 13. Some activities will also take place at Country Park and the Colonial Heritage Center.
On both days from 8:30-5:00, capture a glimpse of life as a Revolutionary War soldier. See a small arms demonstration and listen to the Guilford Courthouse Fife and Drums. There are special guided tours throughout the park. Witness tactical demonstrations and a Reenactment of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse on each afternoon from 2:00-3:00.
This is a great activity to do especially with children. Some teachers will also give extra credit to students who attend the events at Guilford Courthouse Park. Even without these special events, Guilford Courthouse Park is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. With paved walkways and beautiful scenery, it is popular with walkers, runners and picnickers. The weather is supposed to be mild and warm this weekend, so come on out to Guilford Courthouse this weekend to enjoy it!

The ACC Hall of Champions is the newest attraction in Greensboro. Opened to the public on March 3, 2011, this facility is dedicated the the rich history of Atlantic Coast Conference athletics.
The Hall features multi-media exhibits, life-sized mascots and interactive broadcasts to provide a comprehensive view of the first 58 years of ACC history.
Greensboro was chosen as the home of the ACC Hall of Champions because we have traditionally been the host of the annual ACC basketball tournaments. The ACC tournaments are somewhat of an obsession here in Greensboro and throughout the south. The ACC reaches as far north as the Boston University and the University of Maryland all the way down to Florida State and the University of Miami. On days when Duke plays the University of Carolina at Chapel Hill (known locally just as “Carolina”), Greensboro is awash in dark and light blue as fans don their favorite team’s colors. Good-natured smack talk is heard throughout the city, including in offices, stores and schools.
The ACC Hall of Champions is housed in a brand-new building on the grounds of the Greensboro Coliseum. The regular hours are Wednesday-Saturday 10:00-4:00, Sunday 1:00-4:00 and closed on Monday and Tuesday. During the ACC tournament, hours are extended so check the ACC Hall of Champions website for more details. Tickets are just $5. The ACC Hall of Champions is located at 1921 West Lee Street, Greensboro, NC.
Here’s another reason to love Greensboro. Tyler’s Locker, a newly founded non-profit, has started collecting used sports equipment so that disadvantaged youth can get into the game.
Tyler’s Locker was founded by Greensboro Police Captain John Wolfe and his son, Tyler, and has gained the support of Ricky Proehl, former NFL player, Greensboro Parks and Rec and Omega Sports. Used sports equipment is being collected and then distributed to those throughout Greensboro who can’t afford the expensive equipment that is sometimes required to participate in sports. In addition to collecting used equipment, Tyler’s Locker accepts monetary donations to provide scholarships to those who are unable to afford the costs of joining in organized sports.
This is a great time to clean out your garage for sports equipment that is no longer being used or that your children have outgrown. Tyler’s Locker is having its Kickoff Event this Saturday, January 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Stop by the Omega Sports at 2431 Battleground Avenue, Greensboro and help children and teens throughout Greensboro.

Fisher Park is a historic neighborhood with beautiful homes, all within walking distance of downtown Greensboro and several neighborhood parks.
Fisher Park Points of Interest:
Fisher Park is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Greensboro. Fisher Park has an active neighborhood association that hosts neighborhood picnics, park clean-ups, holiday parties and luminaries in December.
Fisher Park is within walking distance of the home of the Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball team and the businesses of downtown. Yet, its tree-lined streets, historic homes and minimal traffic make it feel like miles away. There is a large park located between North Park Drive and South Park Drive and inside Fisher Park Circle.
Latham Park abuts the neighborhood to the west. Latham Park is one of only two public outdoor tennis facilities in Greensboro to offer clay tennis courts. Managed by Triad Tennis Management Company, the facility offers lessons, adult and junior leagues, tournaments and court reservations. Latham Park also features ballfields, basketball courts and the Latham Park Greenway, a 1.2 mile paved path that runs parallel to North Buffalo Creek with 20 fitness stations. The path links to paths in Lake Daniel Greenway and the Hill Street Connector Trail, making it possible to walk, bike or jog from Cone Hospital and downtown Greensboro to Friendly Center and Wesley Long Hospital.
Also to the west of Fisher Park is the peaceful Green Hill Cemetery, which dates back to 1882. Friends of Green Hill Cemetery, a non-profit organization, offers historic walking tours of this 51-acre gem.
Have you ever dreamed of owning a Bed-and-Breakfast? Fisher Park is the perfect spot. We have a home listed at 205 North Park, Greensboro, NC that is currently serving as a retreat for weary travelers and those who want a romantic getaway.
