We need your help!!!  Twice Blessed is a matching grant through the St. Joseph’s Health Foundation that chose the Velva Park Board to be a recipient of $2500.  The money will go towards updating the existing sand volleyball court and adding another.  The summer of 2019 was the first year of having a league, with eight teams participating.  By raising necessary funds the summer league hopes to grow with two courts and more participation from surrounding communities.  

Estimated cost:

  • $1400 for washed sand
  • $1800 for concrete, poles and wood border
  • $3300 nets, adjustable poles, antennas, pad for poles, boundary lines and flip scoreboards
  • $2500 benches
