Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Palmer, AK

Total Budget: $6,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: Improve the public tennis court in Palmer, Alaska.

The public tennis courts in downtown Palmer, Alaska get a great deal of use. They are free to the public. The courts need to be resurfaced and they need new nets. Alaska parks and public sports venues are seeing a big increase in usage. During the pandemic, outdoor recreation is preferable to indoor recreation. Tennis provides an excellent opportunity for social recreation at a distance. We know the importance of exercise and fresh air to public health. Rotarians can assist with the project by painting lines on the court, hanging nets and other hands-on work.

The Palmer Rotary club tennis project is in progress. We have received a comprehensive bid from a local contractor with tennis court experience. We are currently in the fundraising phase. We are in the process of applying for grants and requesting additional funds from the City of Palmer. The other Valley clubs have expressed interest in joining this project which would be exciting. We plan to post a large Rotary banner at the renovated tennis courts.
