Congratulations to all the players in Fishers, Indiana on the opening of your 6 new pickleball courts.
This was another great example of what happens when a few players and their town and parks departments work together for the benefit of the community.
Larry and Teresa Amick are enthusiastic local pickleball players living in the Del Webb community of Britton Falls in Fishers, Indiana. I still remember over a year ago, Larry and Teresa attended a small local tournament (120 players from 7 states) that we held in our tiny town of Brookville, Indiana. They came only to watch, and to take pictures and videos so they would have ammunition to use when they were ready to approach their local park about the possibility of getting some pickleball courts built for their community. They asked a lot of question while in Brookville and we gave them every answer we could and then some.
Well, in July of this year, Larry and Teresa’s dreams along with those of many pickleball players in the Indianapolis area, came true.
With Fishers Mayor, Scott Fadness and Parks and Recreation Director, Tony Elliot and Project Manager, Matthew Walker all on hand, 6 new courts were opened to the delight of all those in attendance. Area USAPA Pickleball Ambassadors, Paul Barksdale (Terre Haute), Melissa Muha (Indianapolis), and Rocket Grubbs (Brookville) were all on hand to give a pat on the back to all those who worked so hard to make this happen. After a ceremonial first match with the Mayor, the courts were opened for play and flooded with players.
Congratulations Everyone in Fishers.
You do rock!!!
