Construction of a long-awaited indoor basketball, volleyball and pickelball court facility alongside FunCity Resort has begun.

The Courts, the second and final phase of a project aimed at increasing sports tourism, health fitness and athletic activities in the Burlington area, will be built in the southeast parking lot of FunCity Resort between the Winegard building. 

According to a building permit approved in April by the Burlington Development Department, the 26,000-square-foot building will include three collegiate-sized basketball courts that will allow for up to six volleyball courts.

It also will house a 10,000-square-foot multi-use area that can be used for pickleball courts, as well as men and women’s restrooms. 

The space also will be able to host volleyball games, racquet-sports, wrestling, events, and other community activities.
