WILLIAMSTON , S.C. – The Town of Williamston will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for their long-awaited pickleball courts and a new basketball court on Friday, October 14, 2022 at 6 P.M. The public and media are invited to attend.
The 8 new lighted regulation-size pickleball courts and new basketball court are located at Mineral Spring Park in the heart of our downtown.
