New basketball hoop brings new energy to Roseland Community Center

Recently the Tryon Downtown Development Association, through a grant from the Carolina Foothills Chamber Foundation, and together with the Town of Tryon, installed a much-needed new basketball hoop to replace one that fell into disrepair at the Roseland Community Center. The grant also funded extra heavy-duty nets and balls. Other organizations have since come forward to offer a ball rack, a bench, and possibly other amenities to add to the court.
