Rotary Club Members Join Hands to Clean BSUSD Tennis Courts


Last updated 5/22/2015 at 3:11pm

On a very windy and cool Saturday morning when most Borregans would have preferred to stay in bed, a dedicated group of Rotary Club Members came out to the Borrego Springs High School tennis courts. The mission was to make a difference refurbishing the tennis courts at the High School and Middle School Campus so the students can use them.

Tennis instructor Mike Rogers is currently teaching tennis in the after school program. The tennis courts are located right on the campus. With the weather getting warmer it is time for a new physical set of skills for the students.

Two very antiquated and dilapidated tennis courts were in desperate need of work. Many volunteers were members of The Rotary Club international. Some local Borregans, Realtors, and rotary club volunteers attended the cleanup from 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. Saturday, April 25, and what a big impact they all made. The before and after pictures of the tennis courts is affirmation to a job well done. The changes that were made included pulling an insurmountable amount of weeds from the courts, power blowing the dust and sand that had accumulated after years, and repairing the nets so the courts could be in a usable condition.

The Rotary Club, Rotary International is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders. These leaders are willing to provide humanitarian services and to help build goodwill and peace in the world.

Rotary Club International is a secular organization open to all people regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, or political preference. There are 34,282 clubs and over 1.2 million members worldwide. Borregans have volunteered their time toward this service organization to help the town of Borrego Springs with projects.

Thank you Rotarians and Borregans for your dedication and help in making the tennis courts accessible to the students.
