New pickleball courts coming to Crestview Park
Pickleball enthusiasts will have a new place to enjoy their game as six brand new pickleball courts are being installed at Birmingham's Crestview Park.
City contractors began work on the six pickleball courts the week of May 8, and the city anticipates the courts will be ready for play by late May or early June.
Pickleball is America's fastest growing sport. It is a paddle sport which combines elements of tennis, badminton & ping-pong using an oversized paddle. It can be played by two or four players, where they hit a perforated hollow plastic ball over a 36-inch-high net using solid-faced paddles.
