Park City Credit Union donates $1,000 to Pioneer Park pickleball project

The pickleball phenomenon has hit the Northwoods area, and Park City Credit Union has swung into action with a $1,000 donation to Pioneer Park.

The donation is part of a fundraising campaign to raise more than $70,000 to construct six to eight courts at the park in Rhinelander, according to a credit union press release. About $22,000 has already been collected through corporate and individual donors, the release states.

Four standard pickleball courts could be constructed within the same dimensions of one tennis court.

"There's something special to pass a park and see the parking lot full of people," said Park City CEO Val Mindak. "Pickleball has really taken off, and this will be a fantastic addition to Pioneer Park."

Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. Matches are played as doubles (two players per team) or singles using paddles and what looks like a wiffle ball. It has become a sport enjoyed by children and adults of all ages.
