Pickleball in Frankfort

In the summer of 1965 in Bainbridge Island, Washington, pickleball was created. Now 51 years later Pickleball has found its way to Frankfort, KY.

Pickleball is a combination of tennis, badminton and ping pong. It is played on a tennis court and instead of a shuttlecock like badminton, it uses a whiffle ball and a paddle. Sound interesting? Let’s make it a little more interesting and say we have a “kitchen” too.

On May 17, 2016 we will start our 3rd season. We will be playing at the Franklin County High School Tennis courts. We start at 6:00 in the evening.

I dare you to come out and see what all the excitement in Frankfort is all about. It’s fun, it’s exciting and most of all it’s a game for all ages. It’s a game for the young and the matured.
