On Thursday, Commissioner Jeffrey Nash joined Berlin Borough Mayor Rick Miller and members of a regional pickleball association to unveil new pickleball courts at Berlin Park.
“Pickleball is now the fastest growing sport in the country and now, Camden County is getting in on the action,” said Commissioner Jeffrey Nash, liaison to the Parks Department. “Whether you’re a seasoned player or just trying something new, these courts are for everyone to enjoy. Ensuring that our residents have access to quality, outdoor recreation is a top priority for the Board of Commissioners and we’re thrilled to welcome players to the Berlin Park courts.”
This project, which cost around $33,000, converted an underused roller hockey rink into five pickleball courts that are now used most days of the week. The Board of Commissioners and the Parks Department worked closely with Berlin Borough and the South Jersey Pickleball Association to ensure the success of this project
Work included fencing repairs, the installation of five pickleball net systems, color-coating and striping of the courts and installing signage.
