Summer Pickleball & Tennis Court Projects

4/2/19 – This summer the Park District of Highland Park is making improvements to the twelve tennis courts at Danny Cunniff Park and the two courts at Woodridge Park as well as welcoming Highland Park’s first dedicated outdoor Pickleball courts.

What is the Dill with Pickleball?

Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports. The Sports and Fitness Industry Association reported that in 2018 there were 3.3 million pickleball players in the US a 34% increase from 2014. The Park District of Highland Park is keeping up with the trends and listening to interest expressed by community members for dedicated pickleball courts. In 2019 the District will be converting two of the 12 tennis courts at Danny Cunniff Park to 6 pickleball courts and converting the 2 tennis courts at Woodridge Park to 6 pickleball courts for a total of 12 outdoor dedicated pickleball courts in Highland Park. This is in addition to the existing indoor pickleball opportunities offered by the Park District at the Recreation Center of Highland Park and the Deer Creek Racquet Club.
