New outdoor court in Rensselaer County

 STRIDE Adaptive Sports  in West Sand Lake has a new outdoor pickleball court. The court is open to the public. There is a $15 drop-in donation.

The court was just completed this fall and STRIDE plans to host a pickleball social in the spring.

STRIDE is a nonprofit organization that provides over 11,000 adaptive sport and recreation lessons each year to individuals with disabilities, focusing on youth and Wounded Warriors. STRIDE offers programs in more than 19 different sports at 28 regional locations in the Northeastern US.

With a focus on individual lifetime sports, STRIDE programs use specialized equipment or teaching aids for successful participation to “level the playing field” for all. STRIDE is a US Paralympic Sport Club and a training club for New York Special Olympics.

Players are asked to contact STRIDE in advance to reserve the court, sign a waiver (just once) and get the code to the equipment locker.
