A group consisting of city officials, local school officials and coaches, city employees and citizens met Monday to talk about installing at least three new basketball courts in Fort Payne where anyone can come to play for free. 

City Council President Walter Watson said he’d been asked numerous times about adding basketball courts and found great demand for one after he personally installed a net on the side of his church building. A neighbor asked that it be taken down, though, due to disruptions caused by pick-up games, when people spontaneously showed up and started playing for fun.
