Re: Sidney moving ahead on pickleball, PNR.
The title should read Sidney is doing its very best to delay or prevent pickleball from being played inside its borders. It is clearly a waste of taxpayer money to paint pickleball lines in a multipurpose court. Pickleball requires a net in order to be played.
The councils in other municipalities have assigned tennis priority times/days and pickleball priority times/days.
The promise that future dedicated pickleball courts may become a part of the parks master plan is small comfort for those who believe facilities should be shared so as to keep the costs down and ensure that public recreation facilities are used to the fullest extent.
