Last Spring, the town of Hopedale closed the only basketball court in town, per state Covid guidelines. Now over a year later, almost every surrounding town has reopened their courts - but the Hopedale court remains closed. According to the most recent guidance from the state of Massachusetts: “All outdoor athletic fields, courts, and other playing surfaces (basketball, tennis, baseball, football, soccer, skate parks, etc.) can be utilized by the public during Phase IV, Step 1 for general recreation.”

Park ball is one of the few activities available to older kids in Hopedale, and they now have to go to others towns to use their courts (where they have proven the can play responsibly and follow all town protocols). Meanwhile, at the Hopedale town park, the tennis courts and playgrounds are open for public use. The only thing closed is the basketball court. 

Please sign this petition in hopes that the town of Hopedale will open up the courts, so Hopedale kids have a healthy outdoor activity to participate in and and no longer have to drive to other towns to play basketball.
