On behalf of the Covington Community Foundation, CEO Dale White recently presented a check for $ 10,000 to the Town of Covington for a new sand volleyball court in Covington City Park, according to the foundation’s information. .
The grant was awarded in response to the park’s five-year master plan, which, through investigation, indicated sand volleyball to be a top priority for students at Covington Middle School and Covington High School.
The Covington High School Volleyball team have drawn a lot of attention to Covington in recent years thanks to their successful regional and regional performances. The women’s volleyball team is coached by former Covington player Jennifer Lewis Sutherlin
According to Covington Mayor Brad Crain, “The sand court will be placed immediately west of the new basketball courts. Lighting is being installed to allow evening and night play. Crain anticipates that this project will be inaugurated in the coming weeks. The circular driveway will be demolished, on the westernmost side, to make room for the land, but new asphalt will be installed to guard the driveway, for traffic and access to parking in the west lot, during the football season. White ends by saying, “It is a pleasure for the Foundation to provide this additional convenience to Covington City Park. The park council and our municipal leaders do a fabulous job of making our park a popular destination for our citizens and for those outside our community.
