Alamance Community College’s new Multipurpose Sport Court is now open. Students, faculty and staff, local county officials, and members of Impact Alamance which funded the facility gathered for a ribbon-cutting on Friday, May 5.

Largely funded through a $50,000 grant provided to the College from Impact Alamance – whose mission includes promoting healthy lifestyles -the ACC Board of Trustees last fall approved a $94,000 budget for a multi-purpose court. Additional funding came from bookstore revenues, which can be used for projects benefiting students.basketballs on court

Now ABSS and college students can enjoy such recreational sports as basketball, volleyball and pickle-ball. The multi-sport court will better provide the PE requirements for Early and Middle College students and could allow the College to expand its PE course offerings. The court was constructed on what previously was an unpaved parking lot adjacent to the Gee Building main entrance.

Uriel Regalado, a sophomore in the ABSS Early College at ACC, was the winner of a $200 VISA gift card for being the first raffle ticket holder to sink a basket during the “ACC Half-court Challenge” that followed the ribbon-cutting.
