Turning Tennis Courts Into Pickleball Courts

Watch a video about this winning project from a 2018 AARP Community Challenge grantee

LOCATION: Findlay, Ohio
GRANTEE: City of Findlay

Since pickleball courts take up less space than tennis courts, more courts can fit into the same amount of space. Pickleball can be played by people of all ages, and it's especially popular with older adults because, with a smaller court, there’s less running, which keeps knees and hips happy. An AARP grant funded windscreens, bleacher seating, landscaping and a bulletin board for sharing information.

The AARP Community Challenge funds "quick-action" projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.
