The damaged backboard on the basketball court in the field has been replaced, so now the entire court is playable. Parents, please remind your children to be respectful of Kanawha property. We would like to be able to make improvements and not have to repair things that are intentionally damaged.

The large playground apparatus that was damaged (due to normal wear and tear because it was around 30 years old) has been removed. A new apparatus has been ordered and should be installed by March 22, depending on the weather. In the meantime, we still have the swing set, the teeter totter, the small basketball court, and a big open area. The new apparatus will have all sorts of fun things to do for a wide age range.

As the weather gets warmer, there are more and more activities happening at Kanawha. Please check the web site (www.krarva.org) frequently for updates. Information is being updated and added several times each week at this time of year. Junior tennis clinics begin the week of March 18, and adult tennis clinics will begin soon. Scott Mitchell, our new director of tennis will begin on March 18, and he will be teaching groups and individuals and adding activities to our tennis calendar. Leslie Upson and Del Moser are also available to teach individuals and groups. Del is returning for his 23rd year, and as soon as the weather is warm enough, he will be ready to start.

In addition to tennis clinics, KRA also has several tennis teams for both children and adults. There is information about the teams on the web site. The USTA Men’s 3.0 team, which will play in the spring season (April, May, and June) on Sunday afternoons. Rick Bryner is the captain, and any men who are 3.0 players and are interested in joining that team are asked to contact Rick (rickylb@earthlink.net).
