Due to the popularity of the sport and the age of the courts, the Patchogue Village Board has recently renovated the pickleball courts at the Rider Avenue Four Sisters Park. Land-Tek completely tore down and rebuilt both the tennis and pickleball courts over the summer in the amount of $389,505, with an additional cost of $62,991 paid from the Parks Improvement Grant.
The heavily used courts haven’t been redone since the ‘50s, when the park was originally dedicated; deputy mayor Jack Krieger estimated that the park has seen some minor renovations.
Back in 2020, when Patchogue Village reopened their parks as part of Phase 2 of the NY Forward reopening plan, the village also reworked the tennis and pickleball courts, rededicating a court specifically for each sport.
At that time, Business Improvement District executive director Dennis Smith said the courts were completely refurbished, with proper fencing between to keep the balls from escaping to other courts.
The courts, according to trustee Joseph Keyes, have now been reworked, facing north and south rather than the current east-west direction. They are now ready for some play!
