The two courts have been transformed into six gorgeous pickleball courts. (Yes, gorgeous!!!) The City of Greenville has not told us when these courts will be open to the public.
Currently, there is a lock on the gate. No definitive start date from the City has been announced for the courts. It’s possible the lock will be taken off in a day or two.
PLEASE NOTE: There is not a court divider between the two banks of courts. This is a MAJOR SAFETY issue because balls will roll onto the pickleball court behind you while playing. The City is aware of this issue and will fix it soon.
When the courts do open up, Upstate Pickleball only want us to use one bank of courts. That means we will have 3 side-by-side pickleball courts to play on. Once the City solves for the court divider issue, all 6 courts will be ready for us to get our Zero-Zero-Start on.
Unlike Gower Park, where we have a bin chained to the fence to hold balls and demo paddles, we do not have a bin (yet) at Timmons Park. Have patience with us. We need to get approval for a bin from the City. We hope to get that approval on Tuesday when we meet with the City.
For about the next week, once the courts are open to the public, you will need to bring your own balls to play at Timmons Park.
Be patient. We will have a plan in place soon to have balls at Timmons Park.
These are exciting times. This has been a long time coming and it’s almost here.
