New Courts Coming This Summer!

It must be spring! Construction season is upon us (well maybe not given our recent weather!). This season will bring many new pickleball courts in Hopkins, Minnetonka, Bloomington, and Eden Prairie.

The SWMPC through city representatives, board, and club members have been instrumental in working with the cities to bring the following new courts to reality. A big thank you to those that have been involved in the process.

The 8 new Staring Lake Park courts in Eden Prairie are under contract with a tentative ground breaking celebration in May. Look for the announcement!

Hopkins has awarded contracts for 5 new courts in Central Park. Central Park is located at 101 16th Avenue South in the downtown area of the city. The tentative schedule is for the courts to open the end of July or early August.
Rumor has it that the pickleballers in Hopkins have a really fun time! Note to self, check these courts out when they open…

Eight new courts will be constructed in Lone Lake Park in Minnetonka. Construction is expected to begin May 1 or earlier with completion in July. The courts will be constructed in the south end of the park, just west of the picnic shelter.

(Drum roll) The bid opening for new 8 courts at Westwood Park in Bloomington was April 10. The agenda for the April 16th City Council meeting includes the Westwood Courts as a consent item near the beginning of the meeting. Come support the project and thank the City staff and Council for their efforts to make this a reality. Cross your fingers these courts will be open for the USAPA Midwest Regional Tournament!

The word is out. New courts are being planned and becoming a reality.
