With more than 1,000 members and a prominent spot in the regional scene in hand, the Cranberry Township Pickleball Association is growing in popularity and beyond the league’s expectations.
To facilitate court needs, additions to the pickleball facility in UPMC Passavant Sportsplex at Graham Park received approval from the Board of Supervisors at their March 3 meeting.
That included the purchase of shades for the court area that would provide relief from the sun and heat during the summer months for both players and spectators, as well as court lighting to allow for evening use.
Later in 2022, to meet the demand of play, CTPA plans to evaluate options to construct a potential new indoor pickleball facility at the UPMC Passavant Sportsplex at Graham Park adjacent to the outdoor courts. The Board authorized advertisement for a bid for that project.
