The $1.3 million addition is the largest pickleball facility in Johnson County. There are 31 pickleball courts total in Greenwood.

“We just find that it’s something that brings people together and for us to promote a healthy city USA,” Greenwood Mayor Mark Myers said. “We want to get people out; we want to get them active and healthy.”
