Franklin opens pickleball courts

Franklin opens pickleball courts

The Town of Franklin has modified the basketball court at Memorial Park to include two new pickleball courts.  


There are two portable nets which can be moved to the side when basketball is being played.  The town has placed these nets with the hope that individuals will use the equipment responsibly and consider them as an added amenity for the park. Whether it is pickleball or basketball, the court is first come, first served with no reservation required.

Memorial Park is located at 488 West Main St., Franklin and the park hours are from dawn until dark seven days a week.
