What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In Mansfield, TX, we only have 3 public lit tennis courts. In a city of 70,000 people, we should have at miminum 7 public lit tennis courts, based on the American Planning Association. In 2016, the city proposed to update a public park named, Chandler Park with 5 lit tennis courts. The project was changed midstream and only 3 existing courts were updated. The other 2 courts was scraped and the money was diverted to another project. In a meeting with city, mayor and our organization and agreement was made that the city would pay for the lights and one court if MATA would pay for the other court, approx. $75,000. We agreed. However, in a meeting with the parks and rec department September 2018, we were told the cost is now $150,000 we need to pay for one court and lights. Right now it is in the city council's hand to get this project approved and started. We have some money promised to us, not enough though. Once we have the committment from the city, we will need to raise $120,000.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. We need to hire a fundraising firm to raise the $120,000 to build the 2 public lit tennis courts. 2. We need to fundraise to get $120,000.

Hire a fundraising company to help us raise the money for tennis courts. We provide our community with low cost tennis for kids and adults in Mansfield, TX. Our executive board is based on all volunteers and we depend on volunteers to help us run our tennis programs. We have one paid staff member, our USPTA tennis pro that we pay per assignment.

Were are an established non-profit since November 2012. We are here to stay and promote the healthly sport of tennis for our community. We have a website and FB account. If we have the 2 extra tennis courts, we can then have tennis tournaments and leagues that will bring revenue into our community.

Still in the planning stage.
