New Pickleball Courts Open at Center for Health Wellness

Pickleball Courts Open at Center for Health Wellness: The Center for Health Wellness has unveiled its latest addition—a set of new pickleball courts, now available for use throughout the week. Operating hours span from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and 6:45 to 7:45 p.m. on weekdays, with additional sessions scheduled from 7 to 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays, and from 12 to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

Murray-Calloway County Hospital’s CEO, Jerry Penner, took center stage at the opening alongside Fitness Supervisor Sarah Bublavy, Dr. Nicholas O’Dell (Chief Medical Officer), Wellness Center Director Keena Miller, Wellness Works Coordinator Elle Hendrix, and Chief Operating Officer John Wilson. Members of the pickleball class joined in the inaugural celebrations, underscoring the community’s growing enthusiasm for the sport.

Pickleball, often described as a blend of tennis, badminton, and ping pong, is played on a smaller court than tennis, requiring less running but equally engaging. Players utilize hard paddles and perforated plastic balls, enjoying the game either in doubles or singles format.

This expansion of pickleball facilities marks an exciting opportunity for our members and the wider community,” remarked Jerry Penner, reflecting on the sport’s increasing popularity and its benefits for overall fitness and social engagement.
