Twin Falls hold ceremony for pickleball courts

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Although the pickleball courts have been in use for a year, the city celebrated their first anniversary with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The installation of the courts came at the right time.

"First of all, it's the fastest growing sport in America,” said Jill Skeem, the Twin Falls pickleball association president.

It’s also the first outdoor pickle ball court in Twin Falls, which are located at Frontier Park.

"We have indoor courts, my husband and I manage three indoor courts at Soccer Time,” Skeem said.

Skeem also said that lots of people have been using them.

"They're filled all the time really, we're out here Monday, Wednesday, Friday, the association is out here Saturday mornings at 9,” Skeem said. “So come on out, learn how to play pickle ball."

Skeem also said that it's an activity that the whole family can enjoy.

"All ages," she said. "It was initially started so like families of all ages can play, and it's very easy to learn. It's not a lot of technique."

You don't need a reservation to play, although you can reserve them if it is a large group, but they are available on a first come, first served basis, and are free to use.

If you want to reserve them, you can call the parks and recreation department at 208-736-2265.
