A hard-working bunch of dedicated pickleball players raised the money to refurbish old tennis courts into new courts dedicated to pickleball. It took a total of 347 hours and $7151 to complete the project. Below is a photo journal of the transformation from tennis to pickleball courts. This is definitely a great example of TEAMWORK! Enjoy!
The new pickleball courts were dedicated June 13, 2015, behind John M Clayton Elementary in Frankford, Delaware. These courts are open from sun up to sun down. On June 28th, they hosted Coach Mo and Matty Pickleball Clinics.
This is how pickleball courts are built, by the strong will and determination of players that love the game! Congratulations!
ALSO, CHECK THIS OUT: The First State Pickleball Club will host “Rock ’n’ Roll” Pickleball at the brand new pickleball courts at John M. Clayton Elementary School near Frankford on Saturday, July 18. Pickleballers are being encouraged to dress up in their best duds from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s for a chance to win prizes while they head out to the courts to enjoy music from the same eras. Snacks will be provided, and a club meeting will be held before the festivities, starting at 5 p.m. The rain date is scheduled for Sunday, July 19.
Here is a great interview with the oldest member of the First State Pickleball Club, Marion Lisehora. Enjoy!
