NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) -- Well done!

That's what officials with the United States Tennis Association have to say about the BNA Bank Park in New Albany.

The USTA Technical Committee selected the tennis facility as the best of its kind in the nation.

BNA Park is one of the smallest facilities to be selected for the USTA Outstanding Facility award.

The park opened in August, 2011.

There are ten tennis courts.

Six more courts will be added.

The facility includes a clubhouse and pavilion for spectators.

"A lot of credit should go toward designer Sam Creekmore. He didn't charge us anything to come and design it. He was interested in it. He's from New Albany," New Albany Mayor Tim Kent said.

Mayor Kent says facility tournaments are a big moneymaker for the city because they attract scores of people to the city.
