2018 Goal: Resurfacing the School Ball Courts

Our main goal for the year is to fund the resurfacing of the School ball courts. This is quite a lofty goal for our little P&F, as we tend to make numerous small donations to the School throughout the year, however we feel that we can achieve it with the combined fundraising efforts that we have planned.

Current Condition
The current court has an abrasive asphalt surface that is quite painful when a student falls over, and often results in a trip to the first aid room with cut knees and elbows etc.

Proposed Changes
A quote to resurface the entire area has been prepared, and it will cost approximately $57,500 to lay synthetic grass with a rubber pad underlay. This will make the space much more user friendly, and provide a softness which is good for the kids while still being firm enough for basketball, netball, tennis etc.

It will have an all-weather surface as water drains underneath the top layer, allowing it to be used all year round and as soon as it has spotted raining, without issues of waiting for it to dry out.
