Las Vegas cutting ribbon on new pickleball court

Posted: Updated:

The city of Las Vegas is preparing to cut the ribbon on a new outdoor facility to hold games of a rising racquet sport.

A court for pickleball is being dedicated at Police Memorial Park located at Metro Academy Way at Cheyenne Avenue at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Mayor Pro Tem Stavros Anthony is hosting the event.

The pickleball court will be offered to residents from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

According to the city, the court was repurposed from a roller hockey court that was no longer in use.

"I hope residents will join me at the park and see what a great addition this court will be to the community," said Anthony. "Pickleball is fun and good exercise for all ages - a great way to enjoy being outdoors with friends and family."

The city describes pickleball as a racquet game similar to badminton and tennis but with the use of a ball similar to that used in whiffle ball.
