According to Stiles, the newly refurbished court is scheduled to open this fall. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be scheduled once construction is completed.

Use of the Sports Court will be scheduled through the Potomac Community Center, Stiles said.

    Hate the point this out, not to say that this isn’t a good idea. But the ‘dormant’ hockey ring was dormant due to signs that we’re very unwelcoming. Basically no pickup hockey was allowed. No wonder it was Dormant. Hopefully the new part will be welcoming to ALL.
