Pickleball Courts Grand Opening & Dedication
The City of Visalia Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce the dedication and grand opening of the Plaza Park Pickleball courts on Saturday, June 17th at 8.am.
Located within Visalia's Plaza Park, at 1800 S. Plaza Drive, the courts are part of one of the fastest growing sports in Visalia and the nation.
Although anyone can play Pickleball, it is favored by the 50+ population as it provides a great opportunity to improve fitness while interacting with other people, and of course, having fun. The City of Visalia opened two Pickleball courts at Recreation Park in December 2014 and quickly learned that more courts were needed. The Department has worked closely with Pickleball Visalia to raise funds to renovate two tennis courts at Plaza Park into eight Pickleball courts.
“We are very excited to see this project completed and be able to provide some truly excellent Pickleball courts for our local players as well as out of town guests during tournament play,” stated Jeannie Greenwood, Director of Visalia Parks and Recreation Department.
Guests will be able to meet local pickleball players who will provide instruction to anyone who wants to come and try it out. The courts will be open for play following the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony.
