Pickleball and Tennis Court Fundraiser

TOtop screen LC PICKLEBALL & TENNIS PLAYERS AND OUR SUPPORTERS

GOOD NEWS

The Little Compton Pickleball and Tennis courts are busy! The pickleball explosion is here and the courts are now the most active and consistently used area in our Veterans Field Recreation Complex.

  • Pickleball and Tennis bring together players of all ages for friendly matches and group play. 
  • We have over 150 people signed up for organized play and lots more who play on a drop-in basis. 
  • The courts are also a Wilbur School recreational facility.

BAD NEWS The conditions of the courts have deteriorated dramatically due to significant surface cracking. They will be unplayable too soon!

SOLUTION The Town Council has approved the Recreation Committee’s recommendation for replacement with post-tensioned concrete courts, with the addition of lights to extend the hours of play. 

  • Why post-tensioned concrete courts? They have a 25-year guarantee and will save us money in the long term.
  •  Alternative surfaces are asphalt. They have a 1-year guarantee and have a life expectancy of 8 to 10 years. Our current courts are asphalt and failed in less time!

HOW DOES THE FUNDING WORK? 

  • The Town will provide $600,000 over 3 years: 2023, 2024 and 2025.  
  • Our fundraiser will make up the difference in costs. Our goal: $200,000

DOUBLE THE IMPACT OF YOUR DONATION

Every dollar you donate will be matched up to
$10,000. Any amount will be greatly appreciated!
