Pickleball is coming to Black Mountain!
The hottest new sport that everyone is talking about is actually celebrating its 50th anniversary! And Henderson is embracing the celebration of the sport. Black Mountain is bringing 12 brand-new pickleball courts to the community.
These courts are sure to be a welcome addition to the new residents, as well as those who have been calling Black Mountain home for many years.
So what is the fuss about Pickleball?
Pickleball is a sport created in 1965 by a few dads living in a small community near Seattle. Invented to keep kids entertained who had become bored by the same old activities, these dads came up with some simple rules. One story has the sport being named after the dog, “Pickles,” who kept stealing the ball.
It is a paddle and ball sport combining elements from Badminton, ping pong, and tennis. It is popular because of the social nature of the sport, and it appeals to all ages, from kids to seniors.
Because of the growing popularity of the game, there is an upsurge of new courts being built, leagues forming, and tournaments happening. Many facilities throughout the valley have multiple courts-sometimes as many as 8- to allow more people to play. Black Mountain has even more on the way. 12 brand new courts are in the plan. These courts will provide space, enabling a lot of play for enthusiasts of all generations!
