Court shortage
For campus racquetball afficionados, finding a court on which to play
often preclu'des the challenge of the game itself.
The recreational sports department has, for some time, recognized the
lack of court space, and last spring it decided to resolve the situation by
proposing the installation of ten courts at the Sports Coliseum.
UNFORTUNATELY, SEVERAL roadblocks have placed the project's
realization far down the road, perhaps as much as five years away.
After the Advisory Committee for Recreational Sports (ACIS)
determined the project to be structurally feasible, an investigation was
launched into the method by which funds could be raised to build the courts.
An estimate of $300,000 was given. This would be a sizable chunk of the
rec sports department's budget, thus the realistic alternative seems to be a
generation of funds from outside the department.
"The money could come from several sources," said Bill Canning,
associate director of rec sports. "We could get some from the General Fund,
some from public donations, or we could try to generate some ourselves. We
could submit the issue to a referendum, and see if the student body would be
willing to tax themselves," explained Canning.
Canning added that the department will have to wait until the end of the
year in order to decide how the money will be raised. "We won't know if our
department can raise the funds until the budget is examined," he said.
RACQUETBALL COURT space, isn't the only problem under
consideration by ACRS; there are other renovations, such as the lighting of
the Palmer Field tennis courts, which may be placed higher on the list of
"There are many areas in which we would like to make improvements,"
said Canning. "Our department has to decide which project gets priority."
As with the fund raising issue, such a process may take a good deal of
And until that time, fanatics of the nation's fastest growing sport will
just have to keep on plugging away for that precious court space.
