CRANBERRY TWP — A little more than a year after they were officially dedicated, the township's pickleball courts at Graham Park are buzzing with activity.
And that activity will ramp up even more, as the courts host the second-largest pickleball tournament in the region taking place through Memorial Day.
The eight pickleball courts were part of an athletic complex constructed as the Cranberry Township Community Chest's 2017 Project of the Year. It also includes two tennis courts, two basketball courts, four horseshoe pits and three boccie ball courts. There's also a multisport practice area, restrooms and a community garden.
Since the creation of the courts, the Cranberry Township Pickleball Association has grown exponentially. According to Bruce Mazzoni, an avid pickleball player and township supervisor, more than 400 members make the association the largest in the state.
