Outdoor court nets upgrade

The outdoor basketball court at Summerland Middle School has been improved

The outdoor basketball court at Summerland Middle School has been improved as a result of a project between the Okanagan Skaha School District and the municipality.

Dale MacDonald, director of parks and recreation for the municipality, said the improvements came after a request from Abhishek Lekhi, a high school basketball player.Lekhi said the outdoor court did not have the necessary lines marked and was not well illuminated for evening play.

MacDonald said the work was done in partnership with the school district. Hoops and nets for outdoor play were purchased and lines were painted on the court. The outdoor court was used for a three-on-three basketball tournament on the weekend. The tournament was organized by Lekhi to raise money for basketball facilities in summer and to boost the popularity of the game. It was sponsored by Basketball B.C.
