The almost $400,000 project is being paid for entirely by the SCW Pickleball Club, with an interest-free loan by the Rec Centers. This will add further value to the $150 million of amenities available in Sun City West, along with the new $4 million RH Johnson pool facility to be completed this fall. Sun City West now has 26 state-of-the-art pickleball courts, 23 of which will be managed by the club. Three of the new courts will be available for SCW residents who are not club members. The club currently has 1,200 members, including 300 new ones. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the country, according to CBS news and other reports.
