Kingsport hosting outdoor “glow” pickleball event
Kingsport Parks and Recreation is hosting its first-ever outdoor “glow” pickleball event later this month.
The event will be held on March 25 at the Riverview Park Pickleball Courts located by the V.O. Dobbins Community Center (301 Louis Street). Two sessions will be held that evening – Group 1 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Group 2 from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Players ages 14 and up can participate and the cost is $5 per player. Online registration is required.
To register visit www.kingsporttn.gov and click on the “CivicRec” link, then search for “glow.”
Pickleball is a game similar to tennis but played on a smaller court with a racket much like an oversized ping-pong paddle. Glow events are when participants wear neon or white clothes, the lights are turned off and the black lights are turned on. Everyone then “glows” in the dark while running around and playing a game of pickleball. For more information call 423-224-2489 or visit www.kingsportparksandrecreation.org.
