What makes Tucson's new pickleball courts special

Posted at 6:41 PM, Apr 16, 2024

TUCSON, Arizona — The Tucson Racquet and Fitness club unveiled ten new pickleball courts that are individually fenced in and made with a special concrete to prevent cracking.

The club introduced the courts with a ribbon cutting ceremony. They are made with 5 1/2 inch thick post-tension slabs, and they increase the club's number of courts from 12 to 22.

Additional private courts could help ease congestion at public facilities like Udall Park, which can have a wait time.
