Libby Serves Up Tennis and Pickleball Court Repairs to Keep A Community Asset Alive
- Local Champion: U Serve Libby
- Date Funded: August 31, 2022
- Grant Amount: $12,000
Fifteen years ago, U Serve Libby—a local club established to support youth activities in Libby—raised funds to build a six-court tennis and pickleball facility near the city offices and athletic club that’s open to the public, schools, and tourists for no cost. Time, temperature, and Montana winters, of course, have taken their toll on the courts, which are cracked and peeling, and need to be repaired to continue providing Libby’s young people—and the community at large—with a safe place to play. Members of U Serve Libby reached out to LOR for help keeping this community asset alive. LOR’s funding will be used to repair the courts this fall, so they’re ready for action next year.
Construction on the tennis courts was completed well before the first snow of the season, and the ladies pickleball club was able to get a few weeks of playing in on the restored courts. The repairs (according to the ladies) made playing much more enjoyable and safe.
