KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One Kansas City, Missouri, youth program, the Police Athletic League of Kansas City (PAL), got a new venue to play sports thanks to a local fundraiser.

The department announced the opening of the new pickleball courts via Twitter.

A woman, Salli Katz, raised money for the new courts on behalf of her late boyfriend, according to the tweet.

PAL is a program that offers activities to youth and police officers. It offers a wide range of sport and activity-related programming.

Pickleball is a tennis-like game that combines elements of other sports, like badminton and table tennis.
