"PORT ANGELES -- Despite the cooler weather Sunday, pickleball players were out in full force during the rededication of the Elks Playfield.
The playfield, at 14th and Cedar streets, was donated to the city of Port Angeles by the Elks in 1951 and was rededicated in celebration of the renovation of the park.
Two tennis courts that were deteriorating were made into pickleball courts and were completed in mid-June, said Vern Reidel, trustee for the Elks Naval Lodge in Port Angeles.
The Elks and the city split the $30,000 cost to do the renovation.
As soon as it was done, people flocked to the site to play.
"If you come here on a Tuesday, it is just as full as it is today," said Erick Blume, grand exalted ruler of the Elks in Port Angeles."
