It is really ran down. Could all be done away with except for the indoor baseball/softball facilities.

Yeah the indoor facilities are really nice there, but the rest of the building really needs a facelift

I think it is a shame that a charitable organization diverted funds there all those years. The ones involved should be ashamed.

Does anyone know anything about the baseball/softball area? Can anyone use it? Do they have coaches there to teach baseball/softball?

The pool was closed down because they were on the verge of Banko,and couldn't afford to heat it,pay the pool man anymore,lifeguards ect. It was really run down,with big chunks of concrete broken off around it,ceiling tiles falling in ect. Blame mostly goes to absent non-caring board members,& young in-experianced mgr.'s,who are never at the desk,and when they are,they were on the computer playing games or watching cable TV.
too dumb to ask for free labor from convicts --it would take $100,000.00 to repair pool and area,including a new salt water filtration system. no one seems interested in applying for grants.they lost close to 100 members when pool closed,and yes,alot is run down.sad-all it would take is someone with brains to do paperwork to United Way for a grant to repair pool area.
The weight training area is decent,and the karate/MMA area is nice--thats because there are two private businesses in there who t/c of it,JBurds Paragon MMA,and Mr.Mitchell & Mr.Bullards Taekwondo karate-the latter really reach out to the community,and esp. the Karate kids--they have a demo team that appear for free all over to talk about child saftey thru self defense,and give exhibitions of skills by kids inc. board breaking ect.yes softball,and BB coaches are available for a small fee.the WORST part of outside tho is,the illegals have taken over the soccer field and picnic / playground area,esp. on wknd.'s--because they are rather hidden back there from the community.if you like loud music with guitars and horns screaming la cuka ratcha you can have a picnic there too.lights,TV's,ect never turned off,even all wknd everything just left on--too lazy even to flip switches and clean bathrooms.go complain to a board member--they smile and shrug their shoulders,no one gives a rats ass.the Magnolia Hosp. was even approached about buying it--gr8 for physical therapy they were told,till the books were opened up--that killed that brilliant idea.good thing tho is,if you are really poor and disabled,you can get a United Way Scholarship for free membership to facilities--kids too----

Yeah that sounds like a charity the United Way should give to. Need to help all those less fortunate at the sports plex. LOL

To be more clear;
The Sportsplex is not a charity.United Way scholarships pay for memberships there for low income / handicapped kids who are referred there,so they may play in organized sports like Softball,soccer, ect.kudo's to United way for helping underpriviledged kids in Corinth.

That would not fix the pool would it. I would like to see the expenditures of how the monies from United Way over the years went to the underprivileged kids at sportsplex. Kudo's to United Way, just doubt the plex should been a beneficiary.
