Pickleball Court Retaining Wall Repairs Complete

We have completed repairs to the top course of cinderblock and stucco cap on the pickleball court retaining walls. All walls have been painted and courts are again ready for play. Thank you to our patient Pickleball Club Members who shared court time with the construction crews these past three weeks. This project benefitting Nellie Gail Ranch Owners Association was wholly funded by Tennis Club Membership fees.

Pickleball Court Retaining Wall Repairs

Repairs to the deteriorating wall are well underway. The demo on walls around four of the eight courts was completed, the top course of cinderblock was replaced with concrete and rebar, the wall has been mudded and stucco is being completed today. Work on the second half of the wall surrounding the remaining four courts continues next week. This project is being funded wholly by tennis and pickleball memberships.
