The association is also working with the town on a project at Robbins Park to add court lines so there can be four pickleball courts going at once. Cornelius currently has no dedicated pickleball courts so this will be an interim improvement until some of the future projects are completed in 2032. The association will also be partnering with Cornelius Parks and Rec to provide pickleball programming, with clinics starting April 5.
