Volunteer Spotlight

Over the past three years, a group of Pickleball Players (most are members of our Sterling Community Center) have made improvements to the Community Center outdoor ice rink/pickleball courts. This work includes weeding, filling cracks, measuring/taping court lines and dirt/snow/ice removal for the area. Using their own money and equipment, the work has cleaned up this area to make it more welcoming and usable for all members of the Community.

This month the local Pickleball Players met with the Sterling Community Center Board to discuss the outside pickleball courts and hockey rink. The Pickleball Players asked permission to work on acquiring financing (in the form of a grant) for more permanent improvements to the outdoor rink/pickleball courts and the surrounding area. These improvements would include resurfacing, painted pickleball courts, yard cleanup, painting the block boards and player sitting area. Their goal is to make the area more viable for the Community to use throughout the year. The Board agreed to allow the players to proceed, with the assistance of Board member Lori Engler.

Pickleball is available M/W/F from 10am – Noon. During inclement weather, play is moved to the courts inside the Center building. In addition, play can be on all outside and inside courts when a large group of pickleballers show up on any given day.

Also available is a Skills and Drills class on Friday from 9am -10am. These classes are led by Darrell Kiefer and players of all levels (including beginners) are encouraged to attend.

Currently, there are approximately 25 players that frequent the Community Center. Everyone is welcome, please feel free to join them and learn this fun, energetic game.
