Well, a pickleball fan is donating a quarter of a million dollars to double the number of the courts there.

 

Werner Zehnder is donating the money so Bend Parks and Rec can build eight more courts for the popular sport.

 

He moved here with his wife Susan from Seattle a couple years ago and wanted to give back to the community.

 

Zehnder says if they waited for Bend Parks and Rec to fund the courts, it would be at least five more years.

 

"Rather than waiting for us to die and have a sign on the court that says in loving memory of Werner and Susan Zehnder, we decided to do this now when we can enjoy the courts and our friends can enjoy the courts.  That's why we did this."

 

The courts should be completed by next June when the area will again host the Senior Games.
