The SLI Board of Trustees has approved a plan submitted by one of its newest committees dedicated to improvements in Bishop Burt Park. SLI's Park is located in the geographical center of the Silver Lake Institute and is bordered on the western side by Perry Avenue. The plan approved involves the expansion of the existing basketball court to also include a regulation size Pickleball Court. Described as a combination of tennis and ping pong, it has also been described as a game for all ages. An anonymous donor will enable this project to be completed with no cost to SLI residents for the construction and equipment with just willing volunteer labor for site preparation, restoration, and court painting. More volunteers are welcome to respond to this newest opportunity to improve and expand the opportunities in Burt Park. Work is currently scheduled to begin this month with a desired completion by July. Anyone interested in volunteering to help in the physical work should contact Steve Re who is heading up the Pickleball Committee, in addition to valuable helpers, Glynne Schultz and Chuck Dusel. Steve may be contacted at email@example.com. The committee recommends this 1½ minute Youtube video about pickleball for anyone new to the sport: Click HERE.
