THINGS TO DO
Visitors to the Grand Rapids area are invited to visit and utilize the ‘state of the art’ outdoor courts located at the Itasca County Family YMCA which include 6 dedicated pickleball courts, a full-size basketball court with 6 backboards, and a 4-square venue for younger participants. In the wintertime, this area now includes a beautiful ice rink with a warming house and illumination.
Also on the immediate horizon is a project to expand the existing pickleball venue by constructing 4 additional courts. The expected completion date is mid-July 2022. Once completed, this will be one of the largest single-site dedicated pickleball venues in Minnesota.
The collaborative effort and cooperation between the YMCA, the City of Grand Rapids, the Grand Rapids Area Basketball Association, and the Itasca County Pickleball Association made this project a resounding success. This venue is open to the public during late spring, summer, and early fall with no membership requirements or fees.
