BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) – The North of the River Recreation and Park District is serving up a whole new place for pickleball players to work on their game: the Greenacres Pickleplex.

Saturday, eight new courts will be unveiled.

Marketing Director Lisa Plank says until now, most pickleball players have been limited to playing on a dual-purpose court. Now, the public will have access to courts solely designed for pickleball.

The eight courts are located on the southeast part of the park.

The district will hold a ribbon-cutting for the courts at 9 a.m. The public is invited to attend.
