New pickleball courts located in the colony park
–The Town of Atascadero and the Atascadero Pickleball Club invite the public to attend the official groundbreaking ceremony with members of Atascadero City Council at the new permanent outdoor pickleball courts at Colony Park on Saturday, November 13 at 10 a.m. h.
The new courts are located behind the Colony Park Community Center at 5599 Traffic Way, near the outdoor basketball courts. Celebrate the inauguration of the four new fields and enjoy the sport of pickleball which has become one of the fastest growing sports in recent history. The Atascadero Pickleball Club will host light refreshments, a raffle with great prizes and a demonstration of how to play. Pickleball t-shirts will also be on sale.
Pickleball is something the whole family can enjoy. It’s fun, energetic, a great workout, and teaches hand-eye coordination and team play. The game is easy to learn and is a combination of ping pong, badminton, and tennis (with much less running).
Kirk Construction of Atascadero was hired by the city to build the nearly $ 250,000 project. Funding sources for the permanent outdoor pickleball courts include $ 150,000 in City Parkland Facility Impact Fees, the remainder of the funding from generous donations and in-kind services collected by the Atascadero Pickleball Club.
Please note that the Colony Park Community Center parking lot is temporarily closed due to a sanitary sewer replacement project. Participants must use the parking lot near the softball fields along Traffic Way and walk behind the community center building to access the pickleball fields.
