Responding to a number of requests and growing interest, the Tuscora Park Foundation is taking on a new task.

The group is raising money to build new pickleball courts at Tuscora Park.

The proposed pickle ball courts would be installed on the north side of the existing tennis courts, according to a drawing.

The nine-member foundation, headed by President Mike Ernest has raised just over 83,000 for the new courts so far, but they have a long way to go. The new courts will cost $220,500, which includes fencing and lighting.

“We were formed in 2017 or 2018 … we really got off the ground the same year the tennis courts were renovated,” Ernest said. “But everything we’ve done at the courts have been through the generous support of the Reeves Foundation and the Rosenberry Foundation.”

The foundation played a big role in the development of the Southside Community Park, which officially opened last summer.
