4 min read

DELAND — The Volusia County Council gave out more than $3.8 million in Volusia ECHO grants on Tuesday, most going to double the size of Pictona at Holly Hill’s pickleball facilities.

Once completed, Pictona will be the largest pickleball facility on the east coast of Florida. 

“I like what it’s doing for Holly Hill,” Vice-Chair Barb Girtman said. “Those types of investments are what we need in our communities.”

Councilwoman Heather Post said the Pictona is already generating regional, national and even international interest making it a perfect candidate for the Volusia ECHO program.

“This is definitely one that really fits the bill,” Councilwoman Heather Post agreed.

Pictona in Holly Hill will double in size after just two years in business.
