2019 Racquetball Court Renovation Proposal

2019 Renovation Proposal

The Problem

The BYU racquetball courts are in desperate need of renovation. The courts were never built to regulation size and have little to no viewing for spectators and referees. This means that BYU will never be able to host any serious tournaments, which includes any national tournaments that would being many to experience our incredible school.

The Objectives

1. Update the courts to regulation size.
2. Glass walls for the bottom half of the back wall to allow for viewing and referring

The Support

We have already raised $120,000 and need to raise $80,000 more. We have been working on a solution to these racquetball courts for years. We have thought through each detail of this renovation from reaching out to contractors, securing bids, and going through BYU’s formal approval process and more.

The last step is finding the funds. If you are able to help financially, please donate here. VERY IMPORTANT!! In the comments section, please make sure to specify that it is for racquetball court renovations. For any questions, please contact Paul Snyder at 801-636-6555.

The Legacy

Did you know that BYU racquetball is one of the most successful teams in BYU history with four national titles (combined team) and ten national titles (women’s team)? Help our legacy live on!
