Baytown will soon be home to a brand new outdoor pickleball facility funded in part by a $45000 donation by ExxonMobil.
What? Pickleball is a paddle sport in which teams of 1 or 2 players hit a hollow plastic ball over a net much like tennis.
Why? The pickleball community in Baytown has quickly grown in size within the last several years and this project will provide a permanent public place to play pickleball outdoors in Baytown.
When? The completion date of this project will depend on the weather over the next several weeks.
As the concrete cures, workers brush the top layer to create a rough non-slip surface.
Construction crews poured concrete and connected the pickleball court area to the existing park sidewalk.
The pickleball courts will be located behind Calypso Cove at N.C. Foote Park near the playground and basketball court.
Ground has broken at N.C. Foote Park for a new outdoor pickleball facility.
