    Commissioner R. Jack Cagle opened three outdoor pickleball courts at the center today to create new recreational opportunities for residents. Visitors can stop by the Weekley Community Center to check out equipment and take introductory pickleball lessons.

    Construction on the $77,000 project began in May. It includes a paved 102-by-64-foot playing area divided into three courts, plus a nearby picnic bench. The project was funded by Precinct 3, and Precinct 4 built the courts. The Weekley Community Center was formerly in Precinct 3 but moved to Precinct 4 following redistricting in 2021.

    Pickleball, a combination of tennis, ping pong, and badminton, is one of America’s fastest-growing sports, with 4.8 million players, according to The Sports & Fitness Industry Association. For more information, visit USA Pickleball, the sport’s governing body, at usapickleball.org/.

    The Weekley Community Center is at 8440 Greenhouse Road, Cypress TX 77433.
