SHENANDOAH — It’s official. The Valley Tennis Association is no more.
The organization’s final project has been completed by Valley Tennis members, as cracks in the Town of Shenandoah tennis courts have been repaired and lines for four new pickleball courts have been added.
The final items to be settled were the tennis shed at the Town of Shenandoah tennis courts and the remaining funds in the Valley Tennis banking account.
The tennis shed has been give to the Town of Shenandoah. They will perform maintenance to the shed as needed, and it will still be used as always for tennis and pickleball players.
The remaining Valley Tennis funds totaling $5,046.36 have been transferred to the Town of Shenandoah. The town has placed the funds in a CD where it will draw interest. The CD is designated to help construct a new third tennis court at the Wig Wam Park so that Page County High School can host home tennis matches.
The Shenandoah Indians Baseball Club, who continues to operate as normal, also transferred funds totaling $10,817.73 to the Town of Shenandoah. The town has also placed those funds in a CD where it will draw interest. The CD is designated to help rebuild Veterans Memorial Stadium that burned down in 1987. The location of the new stadium is designated to be built in Big Gem Park.
The funds from both organizations include all fundraising efforts for the projects, which also includes all donations to the organizations received from the Town of Shenandoah over the years.
More funding is needed for each project. Anyone interested in fundraising towards these projects please contact the Town of Shenandoah.
If the tennis shed or anything else at the Wig Wam Park site needs repair, please contact the Town of Shenandoah at (540) 652-8164.
