Pickleball complex opens in Madison

MADISON (WKOW) — There’s a new game in town. It’s a blend of tennis, badminton and table tennis.

Madison has its first dedicated pickleball complex at Garner Park.

“Pickleball is so easy to get started, because you just need a ball and a paddle,” says Dave Weinbach. “One of the beauties of pickleball, folks, is that anyone can play. I’ve played pickleball with four year olds, I’ve played pickleball with 100 year olds.”

Conversion of the tennis courts to pickleball courts at Garner Park began in July.

It was partially paid for by the group Madison Friends of Pickleball, which formed in the spring of this year.
