PLAY BALL: It’s all smiles in the local Pickleball community these days. Nancy Hennefer, the Lodi Pickleball Club coordinator, reports that the tennis courts at Kofu Park have been resurfaced and four of them have been painted and converted to Pickleball courts. But that’s not all. The city will also be resurfacing the tennis courts at Legion Park on Hutchins, providing space for six additional permanent Pickleball courts. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is tentatively being planned for Sept. 28. The group says it has been waiting for more than two years for the city to create the courts. Pickleball is reportedly the fastest-growing sport in the country. When told that he made the Pickleball crowd very happy, the famously shy and introverted parks, recreation and cultural services director (Jeff Hood) said, “That’s what I do.”
