Soccer Comes To Glenbrooke!
In November of 2020 The Glenbrooke Outdoor Sports Center received a $50,000 donation to build a soccer field where the lower three tennis courts have been located since the 1970s. An additional 40 feet of adjacent land will be used to extend the length of the soccer field. The top 4 tennis courts will continue to be home to Glenbrooke’s very successful tennis programs and teams.
This very generous donation has been made by the Molin Family in memory of Melissa Joy Molin. Melissa enjoyed playing soccer and swimming.
Our new field will be named and dedicated “The Melissa Joy Molin Memorial Soccer Field“ in June of 2021.
