Letter: Tennis center for the valley

As I sit here staring at the rain coming down, it makes me realize why I am part of the Ad-In! group, a group dedicated to bringing the first public indoor courts to the valley at Crown Mountain. We have raised more than $500,000 of the $1.2 million needed to make the Tennis Center a reality.

After having spent the better part of May rescheduling the Basalt after school tennis program due to rain, it would be great to have a indoor/outdoor tennis center that we can use year round and also prevent skin cancer. The Roaring Fork School District, the town of Basalt, Eagle County and the Buddy Program are only a few of the many supporters we have for this tennis center.

I work with the youth tennis programs, and teaching them a lifetime sport will help combat the youth obesity that is plaguing our country today; not to dismiss the life skills that these kids learn. Honesty, integrity, patience and sportsmanship to name a few.

Our next fundraiser is June 30 at the St. Regis from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.. We have kept the prices reasonable; $100 for a couple or $75 for a single ticket. We will answer questions while treating you to appetizers, drinks and tennis entertainment. Please join us by purchasing tickets at http://www.indoortennisevent.org or go to our website to get better informed about the only public indoor tennis center in the Roaring Fork Valley at http://www.advantageindoortennis.org.
