If you've never played or even heard of the sport of pickleball, don't feel bad. A new offering from the Monroe Parks and Recreation department will give local residents a chance to learn about and take part in the sport. When the tennis courts at Twining Park are resurfaced this month, additional lines will be added to make them functional as both tennis and pickleball courts.
