FIELDS FOR ALL

Bringing play to recreational deserts

King's Court at Martin Luther King Jr. elementary 

King's Court is a pair of youth-sized futsal courts located at Martin Luther King Elementary in Portland, Oregon. The complex is the second project of Fields For All, a collaboration between Operation Pitch Invasion and Stand Together, the community outreach program of the Portland Timbers.

King's Court was built on the grounds of a decommissioned tennis court that was already being used by students at the school as an impromptu futsal court. The project completely overhauled the space with a new surface, goals, and flexible design that will support local youth and school programs.

The project was opened to the public August 17, 2016.

 

King's Court was made possible by Fields For All and many supporters and sponsors:

adidas
JELD-WEN Windows & Doors
KeyBank
Providence Health & Services
Uber
a partnership with Green King Neighborhood Association

SNAKE Court at Vance Park

SNAKE Court is a pair of youth-sized futsal courts located in Vance Park in the city of Gresham, Oregon. The complex is the first project of Fields For All, a collaboration between Operation Pitch Invasion and Stand Together, the community outreach program of the Portland Timbers.

SNAKE Court was built on the grounds of a decommissioned outdoor roller hockey rink that had been unused for years and had become a place where local children and young people gathered for casual soccer games on a rough patch of concrete. It came to the attention of Fields For All in early 2015, when the Rockwood Initiative, a community group dedicated to enhancing quality of life for children in the community, explained the need for and potential benefits of a capital improvement on the site. SNAKE Court is an acronym that stands for "Sports, Neighborhood, Action, Knowledge and Empowerment."

The $100,000 project was opened to the public September 23, 2015.

 

SNAKE Court was made possible by Fields For All, Rockwood Initiative, and many supporters and sponsors:

OPI
Portland Timbers' Stand Together Initiative
Rockwood Initiative
adidas
JELD-WEN Windows & Doors
KeyBank
Pendleton Woolen Mills
