Almost Eight on Each Court

0605160844aThe annual taping of pickleball lines on Sawtooth Middle School’s six tennis courts took place on an early, but hot, Sunday morning.

Dozens of people came to help. So many that there were nearly enough to put eight working on each court!

With all that help, most experienced because they have come multiple years in a row, the work was completed soon.

And that led to lots of pickleball play.

Want to Beat the Heat?

While most of us LOVE playing pickleball outdoors, sometimes we might just want to play indoors without worrying about sunscreen, insects, wind, etc….

Homecourt YMCA at 936 Taylor Ave in Meridian has published their summer pickleball schedule.

You can access it throughout the summer under our Places to Play link in the top navigation.

Even More Courts!

Wayne Larsen and Kevin Johnson have been meeting with and working with Meridian Parks and Recreation to get more pickleball courts at Settlers Park (on the corner of N. Meridian Road and W. Ustick Lane).

They succeeded in getting permission to tape two of the existing tennis courts with pickleball lines.

An enthusiastic group of nearly 30 (!) players showed up EARLY on Wednesday morning to help tape the courts.

And before the tape was completely put down, players were playing on the new-to-pickleball courts!
