Frankfort Launches Pickleball Initiative for Youngsters at Kings Center

Frankfort Launches Pickleball Initiative for Youngsters: The Frankfort Pickleball Association, collaborating with the Frankfort Parks, Recreation, and Historic Sites Department, has introduced pickleball to youngsters from the Kings Center at Dolly Graham Park. This initiative aimed to promoting essential skills like hand-eye coordination, teamwork, and fundamental techniques through three distinct levels of play.

Deneen Petty, the dedicated director of the Kings Center, facilitated the participation of 20 eager children in this engaging program.

Under the guidance of experienced instructors, the children were able to grasp the basics of the game while enjoying the companionship that pickleball encourages.

The collaboration between the Frankfort Pickleball Association and the Parks Department underlines a commitment to promoting active lifestyles and community engagement among youth. By offering diverse levels of play modified to different skill levels, the program ensured that every participant had the opportunity to learn and grow, both individually and as part of a team.
