IF YOU LOVE TO PLAY, THERE IS A PARK THAT IS ADDING MORE COURTS. DINA KUPFER HAS A LIVE LOOK. Reporter: I DID ONE LIVE SEGMENT WITH PICKLEBALL AND I HAVE NEVER LOOKED BACK. IT IS NOT JUST FUN FOR A PARTICULAR AGE GROUP. I KNOW FOR A LONG TIME PEOPLE THOUGHT PICKLEBALL WAS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE LITTLE MORE ESTABLISHED IN THEIR LIVES. MILLENNIALS CAN DO PICKLEBALL. TEAMS CAN DO PICKLEBALL. THIS MORNING WE ARE LOOKING AT SOME BRAND-NEW COURTS THAT HAVE TO OPEN UP. WE ARE HERE WITH AMY WHO IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE SUNRISE PICKLEBALL CLUB. GOOD MORNING TO YOU. NICE TO SEE YOU. THANK YOU FOR COMING OUT. Reporter: WHERE ARE WE AND WHAT ARE WE LOOKING AT? WE ARE SO EXCITED. WE HAVE OUR EXISTING SIX COURTS HERE. THEY ARE COMPLETELY FULL. WE HAVE SIX MORE TOTALLY DEDICATED PICKLEBALL COURTS THAT ARE GOING TO BE THE GROUNDBREAKING RIBBON-CUTTING CEREMONY SATURDAY AT 8 AM. SUPER, SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THAT. Reporter: PICKLEBALL IS ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING SPORTS RIGHT NOW. ABSOLUTELY. THE OLDER POPULATION GOT IT POPULAR BUT NOW THE MILLENNIALS ARE COMING IN. THEY ARE PLAYING. WE HAVE A JUNIORS PROGRAM. WE HAVE THE YOUNGER KIDS. IT IS REALLY BECOMING QUITE THE SPORT TO PLAY. I HAVE TO POINT OUT. ONE OF THE PLAYERS ON THIS COURT, HOWARD. TELL ME MORE ABOUT HIM. HOWARD IS OUR OLDEST PLAYER OUT HERE TODAY. HE IS 80. HE HAS ONE ARM AND HE IS ONE OF THE BEST PLAYERS OUT HERE ON THE COURT. HE IS AMAZING. THIS REALLY IS A SPORT. IT IS REALLY ACTIVE. YOU CAN GET INTO THIS AT ANY TIME. THAT IS ONE OF THE BEAUTIES OF THIS SPORT. PEOPLE CAN COME AND WHO HAVE NEVER PLAYED THIS SPORT BEFORE. MANY PEOPLE COME FROM TENNIS OR BADMINTON OR PING-PONG EVEN OR SQUASH, RACQUETBALL. MANY HAVE NEVER PLAYED ANY OTHER SPORT AND COME IN AND LOVE IT. WE KNOW THE BIG GRAND RIBBON- CUTTING CELEBRATION IS THIS SATURDAY. WHAT CAN PEOPLE DO WHAT THEY WANT TO JOIN THE CLUB? WE ARE REALLY LOOKING FOR MEMBERS. WE HAVE THE ABSOLUTE BEST COURT IN ALL OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. WE ARE GOING TO BE THE PICKLEBALL DESTINATION PLACE TO PLAY. WE ARE TRYING TO INCREASE MEMBERSHIP. RIGHT NOW THAT WILL BE OUR PUSH FOR SURE. WHERE DO PEOPLE GO TO DO THAT? ONLINE. THEY CAN GET ALL THE INFORMATION THEY NEED. THEY CAN STOP BY. WE ARE HERE EVERY DAY FROM 7 AM UNTIL NOON OR FROM 5 PM UNTIL 10 PM ALMOST EVERY DAY. THEY CAN STOP BY AT ANY POINT AND GET INFORMATION. JUST GOOGLE SUNRISE PICKLEBALL CLUB. Reporter: LOVETT. THE NEXT HALF HOUR, YOU KNOW I NEED TO GET IN THERE. CAN YOU HELP ME OUT WITH THAT? ABSOLUTELY BUT IT IS CALLED A PADDLE, NOT A RACKET. Reporter: TO THE WEBSITE AND WE WILL PUT ALL OF THE DETAILS UP. BACK TO YOU.
