Pickleball Lands Sponsorship Deal For New Facility

Vernon, BC, Canada / 1075 KISS FM Pete McIntyre June 16, 2017 01:00 pm
Work on a new pickleball facility in Vernon could start in a couple weeks. The Vernon Pickleball Club is using its own funding, along with a $300,000 grant from the Regional District of North Okanagan, for a 12 court facility in Marshall Field. Don Friesen from the club — who will be building the facility — says they hope to have something ready in time for the BC 55 Plus Games in September. “That means we’ll have pavement done and have a facility in place. It may not be completely painted and shiny, but it’ll be in place,” Friesen tells Kiss FM. The group has also secured a five year sponsorship deal from Okanagan Wealth Advisors/Hollis Wealth. Principal Trevor Perepolkin says the new facility will be good for the community, people’s health, and the city’s economy.
