Chapter Unveils New Multisport Court
By Jeffrey Licht ’81, President Emeritus, Beta Alumni Association

I am so pleased to inform our alumni that after a little more than two years, my dream of installing a multipurpose sport court at Beta Sig has become reality.

The court is located in the back of the house. Due to space constraints, the sand volleyball court was relocated to the front of the house. The sport court measures 30 feet wide by 54 feet long. The basketball court features two 72-inch Plexiglas backboards and 3-point lines, allowing for a full-court basketball game. The court is also ideal for hockey and futsal. Additionally, two poles and an adjustable net were included in the package to accommodate platform tennis, badminton, handball, newcombe and volleyball.

The court is comprised of revolutionary plastic tiles. Our court colors are primarily blue with painted accents in gold. Our fraternity letters are featured along the length of the court, and the Penn State athletic logo can be found at center court. All lines are in white.

This court will provide our undergraduates, alumni and guests with fun for many years. And it will undoubtedly afford us another competitive advantage in our rush program as well as yield return from philanthropic endeavors.

If you weren't at Homecoming, make sure you stop by and see the new court the next time you are in State College.
