The tennis courts at Squaw Valley Park in O’Hara are closed after part of the court buckled.

The tennis courts at Squaw Valley Park in O’Hara remain closed after a portion of the surface buckled, township officials announced.

Manager Julie Jakubec said she expects repairs to be made within two weeks, weather permitting.

“There is a roll towards the back left corner,” she said. “We are waiting for the vendor to come and secure it.”

Cost estimates were not yet available.

The tennis courts are a popular summer spot, drawing people from across the region to the park along Fox Chapel Road.

Jakubec said the buckle could be related to repeated heavy storms.

The park in 2018 was closed for months after flooding deluged the area. Clean-up crews and contractors worked through spring to repair substantial damage that included portions of the trail being wiped out and playground equipment ruined.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
