A sand volleyball court can cost as much as $10,000 to construct, but thanks to donations of time, materials, and equipment, the Northern Door Volleyball Association (NDVA) was able to add a third court to its facilities this summer for a fraction of the cost.
The NDVA runs the Wednesday night volleyball league on County A in Fish Creek and wanted to add a court so all the extra players interested in the league would have a place to play pick-up games. With the help of several area businesses and tradesman, the court was built for about $2,500. Myles Dannhausen helped organize the effort and praised contributors.
“We want to thank all the people who stepped up to help us out,” he said. “It’s great to see people lend a hand to support activities that give area youth a positive outlet and a first step into community involvement.”
The court wouldn’t have been built without contributions from the following: Reinhardt Construction, who donated time and materials to clear the grounds; Nelson Shopping Center of Baileys Harbor, which helped with materials; Reinhard Plumbing, C&W Auto, and Four Season Tree Experts who donated materials and equipment. Jake Danen, Paul Nelson, Ivan Bridenhagen, Dave Zassler, and Dave Wohnrade donated time and were instrumental in getting the court completed.
A fund-raiser at Husby’s Food and Spirits in Sister Bay June 16 raised over $800 to support the project, supplemented by a great contribution from Husby’s and its staff. Jon Ellmann came up from Oshkosh to donate his services to DJ for the event. The Peninsula Pulse and Northern Door Communications also made generous contributions to the cause.
Over $1,200 has been donated so far to offset the cost of the court. Contributions can be sent to: Northern Door Volleyball Association, PO Box 454, Fish Creek, WI 54212. Visit http://www.doorcounyvolleyball.com for more information about the league.
