The tennis court project was completed last week with tiles and lines being installed.

The Plainview Brunswick Community Fund has planned a special dedication ‘ribbon cutting’ for the Plainview portion of the tennis court renovation that was completed late last week.

With funds raised from local donations, a $30,000 grant from the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resource District – the PBCF was able to raise more than $100,000 for the Plainview and Brunswick court renovations that were installed by Tri-State SnapSports of South Sioux City.

The new courts in Plainview feature room for a tennis court, a full length basketball court, two basketball half courts, two pickle ball courts and two four-square courts.

A similar project was started last week in Brunswick as the second half of the promised renovations – with a blue court installed there of the same material.

After the concrete in the tennis court area was repaired in a few places, workers spent the next few days laying tile with their signature snap-together pieces, as well as the finishing mats, lines and installing basketball nets.

On Thursday Aug. 4, the PBCF will be hosting a ribbon cutting at 5:15 p.m. to match with the other community events happening in both parks that evening.

“This project serves as a great reminder to our communities that “big” projects that will last can be completed with community effort and a dedication to the Plainview and Brunswick communities,” said organizers. 

The PBCF has already started working toward a capital campaign to begin raising funds for a new community building, with informational flyers distributed around town, and, as always, the main goal of the PBCF has been to fundraise for a dedicated endowment to support both communities for years to come.

The PBCF board operates as an extension of the Nebraska Community Foundation, and can be found online at, or through the group’s Facebook page at
