Nunda opens pickleball courts with federal funds

The Town of Nunda has added a pickleball court to Nunda Kiwanis Park using funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The funding was provided by Livingston County, which distributed its ARPA funds to support local parks and recreation projects impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nunda partnered with the local Kiwanis Club to build the court since the town does not own a park. “It was a win-win for everyone involved,” said Nunda Town Board Member Martha Blair. The Kiwanis Club received the court they wanted, and the town utilized grant money meant for recreation.

The new court aims to promote social interaction and encourage an active lifestyle among residents. “Pickleball is growing fast in the U.S.,” Blair added. “It’s a low-cost sport for all ages, and we hope our community members will enjoy it.”
