SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – The Town of Summerville unveiled new pickleball courts at Doty Park over the weekend.

Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, an intimate group of pickleball players from the Summerville community participated in a round-robin tournament in celebration of the opening of the new courts, according to a news release.
Doty Park is located on North Laurel Street in Summerville.
