East Center Court Progress - June 11th

Action is really picking up on construction of the new pickleball courts. A new porch deck was poured this week along with the west side viewing/seating area and the seating area between the old and new courts. Next week they will be working on preparations for pouring the post-tension slab.

Concrete was poured in the area between the old and new courts. This seating/viewing area will have a sunshade 'roof'.

Cement is being poured for the viewing area along the west side of the new courts.
Looking good!
