Put away those portable nets, we now have six permanent pickleball courts at the Peach Orchard Campground. Our club has expanded its summer program to take advantage of additional court time and for the first time ever, we can run two different programs in parallel. This will help get people with different skills to come together, learn from each other and socialize.
Many thanks to Mayor and Council for providing the necessary funds in addition to the $5,000 provided by the club. There are still some finishing touches required and the Club has some funds available for possible enhancements such as seating, Big O pipes along the new fences and perhaps a ball machine for practising.
