The Keokuk Parks Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) organization is raising funds to convert the 5th Street Tennis Complex into 6 dedicated Pickleball Courts.
They recently received a $3,000 grant from AARP and will be offering free lessons for a limited time. Pickleball, a game with elements of tennis, ping-pong, and badminton, is the fastest growing sport in America. It is a sociable, fun and affordable exercise for all ages. The Keokuk Pickleball Club and others play in the YMCA gym most every morning.
