Having a football stadium, a baseball field, and a soccer field is great, but what about sports like tennis and swimming? Even though they don’t have as much popularity, tennis and swimming should have their own places on campus to use for practices and games/meets.

For off season practice, tennis players have practices at either La Fortune, or at Hoffman Park. Swimmers have to hop on a bus and head to Jenks and use their pools. Most players don’t mind going off campus to practice, but a lot of swimmers/tennis players wish that they could practice on campus and maybe even have home games or home meets. That would bring a lot more people to actually watch a swim meet or a tennis match, because of easy access.

If a school was hosting a home football game, a sense of school spirit would motivate students to attend. But fewer students show up to a football game if it’s at a different school, and the same applies for sports like tennis and swimming. Since tennis and swimming don’t get the chance for home games, not many students show up to cheer on their fellow classmates.

But with the building of a BK tennis court or swimming pool, comes a big challenge; space and money. BK doesn’t have a lot of room to spare for these facilities. A compromise could be that BK could build a tennis court/ swimming pool somewhere nearby, and not necessarily on campus. Money also an obstacle that stands in the way. Tennis courts and swimming pools aren’t cheap, and maintaining the facilities are also pretty costly. A huge fundraiser would be needed to fund the projects. But truthfully, the construction of a tennis court or a swimming pool seems out of the question for right now. But who knows, maybe one day in the future.
