Town's 1st Pickleball Courts Dedicated at Whitman Park in Melville

September 27, 2016 - Pickleball anyone? To meet the increasing demand for this hybrid sport, I joined my fellow Board Members to officially open the Town’s first dedicated pickleball courts at Whitman Park in Melville.

Today, many seniors are switching from tennis to pickleball, which offers the same social and competitive aspects of the game, but is played on a smaller court using wooden racquets and a plastic whiffle ball. Typically, the game is setup with two players on either side playing doubles and the rules are a cross between tennis and ping pong.

Whitman Park is located off New York Avenue in Melivlle– just north of the Northern State Parkway overpass. For more info, please visit: http://www.huntingtonny.gov/news/?FeedID=2074
