Pelican Landing Announces New Pickleball Courts

Ever play pickleball? It’s a fun, fast-paced mixture of badminton, table tennis, and tennis, and something you have to play to really experience. Now, you can do so on brand-new pickleball courts that were unveiled in a grand opening on Wednesday, complete with a raffle, live demonstrations, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
