My name is Mary Ann. I'm a USAPA Pickleball Ambassador for Benbrook, TX. We've come a long way since those early days when I approached the Parks and Rec Dept. about taping lines for 4 Pickleball courts on the local under-used, out-of-shape tennis courts. And now, two years later, our Pickleball community has grown. We asked the Parks & Rec to resurface the worn-out courts and paint the Pickleball lines on, and they did so. The Parks Dept. did a fantastic job and we are so grateful. Now, we'd like to show our appreciation by helping to raise funds for some new wind screens. The current ones have been up for many years and are in need of replacement. The new screens will cost $1600. If we go over our goal, we will put that in the budget for future net replacement when that become necessary.
Thank you so much for your consideration in donating to a local Pickleball community. We're growing the sport here in Benbrook and it's been fun seeing so many coming out to play and having fun using courts that once were rarely used.
