New North Memphis Mini Halfpipe

Posted By on Wed, Dec 2, 2009 at 10:47 AM

Skatelife Memphis announced today it received the $2,500 it won though Nike's online Back Your Block competition.

The group is planning to build a 20 feet by 30 feet mini-halfpipe at the Greenlaw Community Center with the funds. The exact date of the build is not yet determined, but it should be sometime around the new year.

The Nike grant covers two-thirds of the costs for materials, but Skatelife Memphis is still trying to raise the rest. Interested parties can buy materials at Lowe's or Home Depot and drop them off at the community center at 190 Mill Avenue.
