Popularity of Pickleball on rise in Greenville
Oct. 18,2012

Parks and recreation officials said the program is getting so popular that they're in the planning stages on starting a league.

....... "That was another pleasant surprise that we had folks, 20s and up, coming out and playing," said Davis. "It's a great way for senior adults to get active, but if we have younger people playing, we want them to come play too."

...... "It's fast, it's competitive, it's also fun. you also get to play with all these people."

....Players interested in taking up Pickleball can try it free for their first visit.....The group meets every Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until noon at Gower Park in Greenville until Nov. 24.
