Resurfacing of tennis and basketball courts could bring pickle ball to Peru

Posted by wlpo on February 22, 2012

Remember the game in your high school gym class where you used a hard plastic paddle to hit a wiffle ball over a net?  It was like tennis and badminton but not.  It was pickle ball and it’s just not for P.E. classes.

The Peru Recreation Committee wants to have a pickle ball court with their basketball court on 28th Street.  The court is one of three basketball courts they want to resurface.  They also want to redo seven tennis courts.

Alderman Bob Ankiewicz says they’re not sure what kind of work they want done to the courts.  Depending on what they do, it could cost between $35,000 and $80,000.
