The Town of Kingsville is pleased to announce the Pickleball and Bocce Complex at the Kingsville Arena, 1741 Jasperson Drive, is now open. The Town held an official ribbon cutting at 10:00 am on Monday, October 18, 2021 followed by an inaugural game with the Mayor and Kingsville Pickleball Inc. (KPI) members.

“Pickleball and Bocce are growing in popularity in the Town, and they’re great sports for players of all ages looking to get active without the physical strain,” said Kingsville Mayor Nelson Santos. “We’re excited to give our residents even more opportunity to socialize, have fun, and stay healthy while enjoying these great sports.”

The courts were installed through a joint venture between the Town and a fundraising agreement with KPI. To date, KPI has exceeded their fundraising target for donations and sponsorships for the new courts.

“I can’t tell you how excited all of us are,” said Helen Dean from Kingsville Pickleball Incorporated. “We are so grateful to the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and all of our community for their support in making this dream come true for us.”
