The Village of Rockton, Illinois will be receiving a donation from the Rockton Lions Club for two outdoor pickleball courts. The courts will be at Old Settler's Park, 200 Block of Hawick St., Rockton, IL, 61072. The information below here are excepts from the Village Meeting Minutes.

"Motion by Mr. Magnus, second by Mr. Peterson, to ratify the consensus for a pickleball court at Settlers Park paid for by the Lions Club. Roll call. All ayes. Motion approved 5-0. "

"The Lions Club is donating a 55x70 pad for two pickleball courts at Settlers Park. The Village will only need to pay for nets and paint for the courts. This is expected to be complete by the beginning of summer. They would also like to put in a couple of paths from the pavilion. "
