New Pickleball Courts in Hibbing set for Celebration

New Pickleball Courts in Hibbing: Pickleball, America’s fastest-growing sport, has found a new home in Hibbing with the unveiling of dedicated courts at Bennett Park. This $380,000 project, supported by a blend of private and public funding, marks a significant milestone for the Central Range Pickleball Club, which attained non-profit status in 2022 and spearheaded efforts to bring the courts to fruition.

Modeled after successful installations in Grand Rapids, the courts are a source of excitement among local enthusiasts. Tom Jamar, a board member of the club, expressed that the courts were modeled after those in Grand Rapids, generating excitement among everyone who is now ecstatic to finally have a place to play.

“We want people to feel comfortable, especially if they haven’t played before, to come and try it out.” – ( Ed LaTendresse )

Previously, players relied on Lincoln Elementary’s tennis courts, facing challenges like parking shortages and competition for court time. The new courts at 503 E 16th Street aim to alleviate these issues while fostering a vibrant pickleball community.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday at 3:30 PM to commemorate this milestone in Hibbing’s recreational landscape.
