Friends of Eckstein MS Pickleball is a collection of interested community parties, with the vision to replace the damaged, no longer used tennis court at Eckstein with 4 new, dedicated pickleball courts. The new courts would be used by students during PE classes and open play at lunch time, with possible pickleball clubs providing organized play opportunities after school. The general public would have access evenings until dusk, weekends and any school holiday and vacation breaks.
