PICKLEBALL POPULARITY GROWS IN HARRISON

It’s not uncommon to see a friendly, socially-distanced crowd gathering around Harrison’s pickleball courts. Since the two courts were installed in 2018, a growing group of “pickleballers” are getting out there to exercise and socialize.

 Pickleball is played on badminton-size courts, typically with “doubles” (two people on each side of the net). The first team to get to 11 points wins and plays the next game.

Harrison’s unofficial pickleball ambassador, Roger Essen, said there isn’t a formal club or tournament in Harrison, but local players meet up almost every morning. It’s been an opportunity to invite friends from other communities to Harrison. 

Essen is always recruiting more players and hopes to have a pickleball clinic sometime in the future. In the meantime, he suggests stopping by to observe and learn the rules of the game.

“It’s good exercise, almost 4,000 steps per game,” Essen said. “It’s just a fun game and almost anyone can play.”

The pickleball courts and other recreation amenities are located at the Harrison Community Center, 300 George Street.
