Letter: Pickleball is a very popular sport in Moffat County

Pickleball is a growing, fitness-aware and fun sport that is very popular here in Craig. The local group is fortunate to have an indoor facility with three courts at the Boys and Girls Clubs. Outdoors in mild seasons, we can use City Park tennis courts, which are lighted for evening play.

Play is informal, drop-in and inexpensive. Preteens up to those of us in the geriatric set can quickly learn the basics of the game. Like in other sports, advanced skill takes time and lots of playing hours and can be achieved by those who wish to be more competitive.

The group is currently limited by the few courts and court times available. The community would benefit from an expanded facility. Talks with city and county officials on this topic have sputtered along for a few years. My hope is that progress is forthcoming and that more of our citizens and visitors can enjoy the game.
