Groups must share rec space

Tennis and pickle ball players can both use community's recreational facilities

The argument over tennis vs. pickle ball is ridiculous. Community recreational facilities belong to everyone – not one user group.

Until all the courts we have are used to capacity building more courts is a waste of money. Building any facility that can only be used by one group is an even bigger waste of money. Our governments have much better things to spend our money on: better education for our children, medical care, improved infrastructure, and the list goes on.

The difference in net height is only two inches. This is a game, not engineering, play with what you got. Noise? Recreation facilities are noisy by nature. It is the sound of a health community.

Every court should have lines for both games, the court time should be divided evenly and we should all remember what we learned in kindergarten – be nice, be fair and share your toys.
