Pickleball and tennis can coexist


Did you know that many pickleball players are ex tennis players?
In Tillamook, The Tennis Club was in trouble financially for the scare memberships: They welcomed the pickleball players and now work together in keeping the club open by sharing the spaces and double striping them.
If the pickleball players had been allowed to do the same here, there would have been no sticky residues.
Just two days ago, there was two family-visitors playing pickleball on the vacant tennis court.
If no one is playing tennis, why not?
Exercising outside in fresh air with others… Shouldn’t this be encouraged, supported?
