Tim Brown prepares to serve during a pickleball game at the Green River Recreation Center Monday morning.

A growing sport, combining aspects of tennis, ping-pong and badminton, has earned fans in Green River.

Pickleball might not be a sport many people are familiar with, but anyone going to the Green River Recreation Center Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning will likely see a group of people playing on the gym courts.
