Volunteer day – Part Deux! Cleanup/weeding for SBRC tennis courts

We’re announcing our second volunteer cleanup/weeding day of the 2022 season. This one will be at the South Boulder Recreation Center (SBRC) courts on Monday, September 19th, from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (or whenever we finish before that).

As some of you know, for our first volunteer cleanup/weeding day back in July, we partnered with the Boulder Parks and Recreation Department (BPR), initiating a working partnership that we hope will continue long into the future.

For this second volunteer day we’re initiating another much-needed partnership. Since the SBRC courts are also one of the primary hubs for local pickleball players, we’re expanding our outreach to include the pickleball community. So this volunteer cleanup operation is a three-way deal between BPR, Boulder tennis players, and Boulder pickleball players. Our thanks to the Boulder Pickleball Committee for working with us to make this happen and recruit volunteers from their ranks.

We certainly won’t turn away anyone who shows up at the time of the cleanup. But if you sign in via the Boulder Parks and Rec. volunteer registration webpage, it will assist us with the planning. The page will also fill you in on all the pertinent details.

As mentioned before, we all know how thin BPR is stretched in terms of maintaining tennis and pickleball courts – not to mention playgrounds, swimming pools, dog parks, soccer fields, bike trails, etc., etc. So this is a perfect opportunity for tennis and pickleball players – the true clientele for these courts – to step up and lend a hand, and improve our playing situation at the same time.

Parks and Rec recommends close-toed shoes, long pants (for the kneeling), a hat, work gloves, sunscreen and a refillable water bottle (additional water will be provided). BPR will also provide the equipment and guidance, so just show up and be ready to work. 

See you there!
