Waterworks

For 20 years or so, Memphis Footworks had traditionally played at the Water Pumping station near University of Memphis... however, things have changed. Our new location is downtown on Mud Island, 100 feet from the Mighty Mississippi. Here is a link to the location of the courts.

I have left the description of our old playing location below for historical references ;>
Waterworks has been the home of Memphis Footworks since the early 80's. Thru the years, the members have shown up on Sunday afternoons around 12:30 to kick - rain, shine, and even snow (more times than you could imagine). The area we play at is north of the pumping station across the ditch from the Zack Curlin parking lot. Zack Curlin is the street that borders the East side of the University of Memphis campus. Park in this parking lot (about halfway down Zack Curlin before it turns near the railroad tracks), scramble across the ditch, and join us. We play at the NW corner of the field in the winter time. In the summer, we move down by the big oak tree for some much needed shade.

Click on this picture below from Google Earth to see an enlarged view - it shows undisputable photographical evidence of our presence - check out the 2 rows of 4 worn spots on the turf to the right of the big oak - these are our 4 summer courts. Visible from Space. Kinda Cool.
Note: Photo here is of old courts, not new courts on Mud Island...
