Project Pickleball Sponsorship Levels




Join our FUNdraiser to help the students of Robinson Middle School! Our school serves approximately 800 students each school year, including both neighborhood students and Pre-IB students who come from all over Wichita. We have an extremely diverse population with over 20 nationalities represented. While this is unquestionably one of our strengths, we unfortunately have limited funds to provide additional opportunities and materials for our student body.

PROJECT PICKLEBALL is a fundraiser to purchase and install pickleball courts and equipment for Robinson Middle School. Pickleball is a paddleball sport that combines elements of badminton, table tennis, and tennis into one. The game is played with two or four players who use paddles to hit a ball over a net. Pickleball is increasingly popular with adults and kids and is considered one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States.

As Robinson Middle School continues to develop a positive and safe culture focused on academic, social, and behavioral growth and personal excellence for all. This project aids in the future success of our school and our community.

The pickleball courts will be installed on our recess field and will be utilized by all Robinson students during their recess time and P.E. classes. Additionally, Bleckley Field is open to the public outside of school hours, so our neighborhood community members would also benefit from these courts.

Our goal for this fundraiser is $10,000. However, if we exceed that goal, we will use those funds to restore our Butterfly Garden area, also located on Bleckley Field, and to eventually create an outdoor classroom in that area. We have enclosed our sponsorship levels for your review. Sponsors will be invited to an “Opening Ceremony” before the end of summer 2021. (This date will be determined by project completion, as well as compliance with COVID-19 rules and regulations.)

This fundraiser is a collaboration of community members, local businesses and organizations, and the Robinson Middle School Foundation organization, which is a 503(c). All funds for this project will be raised through sponsorships and donations. Receipts will be mailed back to you.
