Essex – The Town of Essex has teamed up with the Essex County Library to offer pickleball and tennis equipment rentals at the Essex Centre, McGregor, and Harrow library branches.
The rental program, funded by the Town of Essex and administered by the Essex County Library, offers individuals the opportunity to rent tennis rackets and pickleball paddles for a three-day period. Members of the library can visit the Essex Centre, McGregor, or Harrow branch to rent equipment in the same manner as signing out a book. Equipment is limited and will be offered on a first come, first serve basis.
“We are thrilled to team up with the Essex County Library to offer tennis and pickleball rentals in our community!”, said Sherry Bondy, Mayor. “This is a great opportunity for residents to enjoy the outdoors, stay active, and take advantage of our wonderful outdoor amenities.”
The Town of Essex offers three courts in Harrow near the Colchester South Community Centre, two courts in McGregor at Co-An Park, and 3 courts in Essex Centre at the Essex Centre Sports Complex.
“This partnership with the Town of Essex is not just a chance for us to help provide a valuable service to our community, but also to let people know that the library isn’t just about books anymore.” said Joe Bachetti, Chair of the Essex County Library Board
