Pickleball in PEAR Park - Leesburg

Information and Photos submitted by: Ken and Lynn Corbett - Leesburg, FL

There is now a public park in Leesburg, FL, that offers pickleball.

PEAR Park is located about 4 miles north on Highway 27 from the Florida Turnpike Highway 27 North exit. The entrance to the park directly across from the highway from the entrance to the Legacy community. The park opened up 4 new pickleball courts in September and they are in the process of building 2 more. The asphalt is ready; they just need to put the fence up, paint and put the nets up. "We are playing at least three times a week."   Players from the surrounding communities of Highland Lakes, Royal Highlands,  Hawthorne, Water Oaks and Plantation frequently play there. A few players from Highland Lakes and Royal Highlands play regularly on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Last week Ken and Lynn Corbett of Highland Lakes sent out an e-mail for Black Friday play and got 16 players...... and another for the following Saturday and had 14 players.

 PEAR park has been added to the places to play page on the USAPA website, along with contact information for Ken and Lynn Corbett.
