In 2012, Raleigh Parks began hosting indoor pickleball in a few community center gymnasiums. In 2021, indoor pickleball is available in over half of the twenty-one Raleigh Parks gymnasiums. In Fall 2014, the two tennis courts at Method Community Park were converted into six dedicated pickleball courts. The courts at Method Community Park, conveniently located near Interstate 40, and Interstate 440, are regularly used by pickleball players of all ages and abilities.
Pickleball attracts new and diverse players, and Raleigh Parks is preparing to expand the outdoor pickleball court offerings by converting two existing tennis courts at North Hills Park into six dedicated pickleball courts. This location will provide a second dedicated outdoor pickleball facility in the Raleigh Parks system.
This project has been made possible through a generous donation from a Raleigh pickleball player, Marilyn Sorin. Recognizing the positive impact pickleball has had in the community and her personal life, it is her desire that all would come to benefit and enjoy this activity as much as she has. We are incredibly thankful for Marilyn Sorin’s support and the opportunity it will provide now and looking forward.
