The Great Ball Pursuit - Appleton Parks and Recreation
How It Works:
  • 4 separate times throughout the week of August 21st, we will be placing 100 numbered tennis balls at 4 parks.  By the time the week is over, we will have “dropped” 400 tennis balls at 16 different parks.  
  • We will announce the parks that the balls have been dropped via Facebook and Instagram at the following dates/times:
    • Tuesday, August 22 at 3:00 p.m.
    • Wednesday, August 23 at 8:30 a.m.
    • Thursday, August 24 at 12:00 p.m.
    • Thursday, August 24 at 5:00 p.m.
  • Head to the parks and find a ball. *Please think of others when collecting balls, do not hoard balls.  Let’s make this fun for as many people as possible!!  We appreciate your cooperation.*
  • When you find a ball, snap a picture of the ball with some sort of landmark showing what park you are at (ex. playground, pavilion, park sign).  
  • On Monday, August 28th at 12:00 p.m., we will draw FOUR random numbers between 1 and 400 and post the numbers on Facebook and Instagram
  • If you are holding one of the lucky balls, YOU WIN!
  • Send in your picture of winning ball to [email protected] to redeem your $25 gift card to a local business.
