Regional Facility Update – USAPA South East Region

Here are some aerial (drone) photos taken by Paragon Consulting, the engineering firm/Project Managers. See below.   by  Peter Phelps, USAPA Ambassador GA

My favorite (immediately below) – shows the Complex (Spalding County Pickleball Complex) and the Park (Wyomia Tyus Olympic Park) it is in [notice the lake, trails, ball fields (soccer and baseball/softball), disc golf, picnic pavilions, etc … just a beautiful setting]. The Pickleball Complex has 18 dedicated courts, four with cover (plans to cover 8 more); a concession/restroom facility (also: office, pro shop, storage, changing stations, showers, three roll-up service windows in front, etc); outdoor/commercial picture tables down the middle for eating and socializing; shade structures on the “back” courts; bleachers outside all courts; walkways (great navigation) in and around all courts; and vendor and RV areas. It is one of the finest facilities in the whole country and we are getting national attention. We will only operate for 6-7 months in 2017, since construction is to be completed in June. We have already secured three major tournaments (people have taken notice):  the GA State Games – Pickleball Event in June; the Atlantic South Regional Pickleball Tournament in October; and the Super Seniors (SSIPA) National Championships in October. In addition, we are planning a local/area tournament called the Doc Holliday Shootout (Holliday was a Griffin native) in August. As soon as possible, we also hope to have structured-designated play times and leagues for both youth and adults, along with learn-to-play clinics and skill clinics
