Pickleball players, city serve up ace with new courts

There is plenty of space for you to give the sport of pickleball a try at Sturgeon Bay’s Sunset Park. Players took a quick 15-minute intermission from their morning games while the City of Sturgeon Bay and the Door County Pickleball Club dedicated the new court complex on Tuesday morning. The complex includes seven courts for games, a practice wall, lights, and even loaner equipment for pickleball players to hone their skills. It has been a labor of love for Door County Pickleball Ambassador Jay Renstrom who has been working on getting outdoor courts in the city since 2017. Seeing the finished product last week and sneaking in a game or two before today’s ceremony, Renstrom says was almost enough to bring tears to his eyes.

Both Renstrom and Sturgeon Bay Mayor David Ward thanked city officials and the community for helping complete the project.  The Door County Pickleball Club hopes to host a tournament and offer lessons at the site in the future.
