Hi Everyone!

I'm writing you as a current or a past interested pickleball player.

Great news, the courts will be renovated with post concrete tension and lights in 2025. The town has agreed to fund $600,000 but we must raise $200,000 to cover overages from the 2024 estimate of $713,000. Lavinia Gadsden is leading the charge. We would love a contribution toward this endeavor.

To find out more, visit the website www.LCCourtsFundraiser.com.

Also, checks can be mailed to the Little Compton Town Hall, 40 Commons, Little Compton RI MEMO: Pickleball Tennis Renovation

As you may know, the courts are in terrible shape now and desperately need a re-do. We explored many options and both the rec committee and the town agree that this option is the best.

From Lavinia:

There is alot to report about the New Courts and the Fundraiser to supplement the Town's contribution to the total cost.

Long story short: The courts will be replaced and lights will be added. Construction will be Fall 2025, we hope.
Projected cost - best guess: $713,000
Town will provide $600,000
The rest of the money will be raised by us!
Our goal: $200,000

We need everyone's help: fundraising ideas and willingness to participate
and we need your generous donations. Please and thank you!

We have $21,300 so far.
And an immediate opportunity to double your money, with a dollar for dollar match up to $10,000!

We reached out, with money granted to us last year, to an engineering firm. The engineering firm presented us with 4 options for repair or replacement.
The Town Recreation Committee made the recommendation to replace the courts with post-tensioned concrete courts which have a 25 year guarantee. Alternative options were asphalt surfaces with a 1 year guarantee and a life expectancy of 8 to 10 years. Our current courts are asphalt and failed in less time.

Courts are located at the town courts near Wilbur McMahon school.

 Lines are painted. The code to the box is 1776. Please return all equipment to where you found it. Nets belong outside the tennis courts when not in use. You may play anytime after 9:30a on weekdays as long as the court is free. If someone comes to use the court for tennis, we can play 1 hr and then they can use it.
