Beach Volleyball Courts for Corbin, KY
Target: Williard McBurney and Corbin City Council We would like to supply the beautiful city of Corbin, KY with 1 or 2 beach volleyball courts. Rotary Park would be a lovely place to house the courts. Total budget costs for one court would be anywhere from $6,000-$10,000. Things that you could do to combat the costs are utilizing the work-release program, hiring a local construction company so that the money will go back into the community, or use our community service programs. The equipment required for one court would be a 60 ft by 30 ft space, volleyball net, complete with net support poles, sand, and plastic or wooden edging to surround the court. The measurements for one court would be; Net Height: 7 ft 6in from center of the net on the sand raked surface. Court area: 60 ft by 30 ft All would be needed for this job would be to level out the ground for the court. Install and cement support poles for the net into the ground. Supply the court with about 1- 1 1/2 feet of sand. And surround the court dimensions with plastic or wood edging. This would greatly benefit Corbin City, as it would give a place to people to play a sport they greatly enjoy. And as it would keep people who travel to other cities, and ultimately spending their money in that city, here in Corbin, giving back to our community. This is also a great way to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Playing volleyball affects body fat percentage and the muscle ratio of the entire body in a positive way.
