Capital Campaign Phase II Starting; $10,000 Matching Gift To Celebrate

There is excitement in the air as Phase II of the Capital Campaign kicked off in mid-May with the removal of the front bubble structure, as well as the receipt of a $10,000 matching gift from an anonymous donor as we FORTify Our Future!

Currently, the front courts are being resurfaced and the ninth court installed (meaning another 5,400 hours of court time available to patrons annually). Starting June 9, the front courts will reopen and be available for play (weather permitting). We will be keeping the front bubble down for the remainder of the summer in preparation for Phase II, Part 2, scheduled for August 16-September 9. At that time, we will install our new bubble as well as add new LED lighting and energy efficient air conditioning.

To celebrate the start of Phase II, The Fort received a matching gift of $10,000 from an anonymous patron. All donations made towards the Capital Campaign in the month of June will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000.

Naming rights are also still available for eight of the courts, as well as both the front and back bubbles. Other naming rights opportunities are also available including court benches, score trees, and much more.

The Fort also just made donating easier for everyone by setting up recurring payment through its website. We will receive your gift each month on the same date as your first donation. Recurring payments will continue until changed or canceled by calling the Front Desk at 612-252-8367.
