Belvidere Park adds new courts for popular pickleball game

Posted:
BELVIDERE (WREX) -

The growing sport of pickle ball has spread to Belvidere Park.

Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. The sport serves as a fun game for all ages.

Today was the grand opening of six new parks in Belvidere. And our own 13 News producer Lindsey Clark's dad Bob Clark took part in the inaugural matches.

Bob is a pickleball enthusiast along with other avid pickle ball players.

"It's a social game and the game is so much fun. You can't walk away from it and once you've been bitten you are a pickleball player forever," Bob Clark says.

Free pickleball lessons were given to attendees today. To learn more about the sport for yourself, visit www.pickleball.com.
