YMCA COMMUNITY SPORTS COMPLEX
About the Project
Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America and is seeing tremendous growth in southeast Indiana among all demographics. Pickleball, along with basketball, promote physical and mental health, wellness and community cohesion. The sports complex will be located on the YMCA’s campus and is accessible for all to enjoy!
This completed project will provide:
- 4 pickleball courts
- 2 half-court basketball courts
- Lighting with timers to allow for changing season natural light
- A beautiful landscaped shelter and area that serves as a windbreak and artistic space to gather with family and friends
- A trailhead connecting with Batesville’s city trail in the upcoming year
The pandemic has caused the world and our Y to rethink health and wellness, creating opportunities for exercise without barriers. Envisioning an outdoor space that allows for exercise and accessibility for all ages were key to our planning of this space.
The complex will bring community members of all ages and socio-economic groups together, with two sports that are healthy for the body and the mind. This complex will be widely utilized for
- recreation programming
- open play
- family gatherings
Best of all it will be FREE for ALL in the community to enjoy.
