Even MORE Places to Play

anntenniscourts_400x300Just got a note that there are even MORE places to play pickleball!

There are four courts at the junior tennis complex at Ann Morrison Park off 9th Street at the Pizza Hut entrance.

These courts have been taped for pickleball use!

The net height is the same as pickleball use, so no adjustment is needed.

And, the fenced area is much smaller than playing on a regularly sized tennis court, so you won’t spend as much time chasing balls. 🙂

These courts are available starting August 1 and will be a great place to practice for the upcoming Idaho Senior Games!

PS Special thanks to Paula Ekins from Boise Parks and Recreation for helping promote pickleball!

 

Net Height–Crank It Up!

Just a friendly reminder, pickleball players:

When you have finished playing, be sure to crank the tennis net back up to 36″. 

Black-KCCIU

Here’s why it is so important:

  • We are so very lucky to have access to FREE places to play outdoor pickleball.
  • There are now over 30 courts in the Boise and Meridian area, and we can play on those courts any time that tennis events are not going on.
  • BUT, and it is a big BUT, there are multiple tennis leagues that PAY $$$$ to have access to the courts at specific times and part of their pay ensures that the courts will be ready for their tennis play. 

Let’s do all we can to keep the dual-purpose courts lined with both pickleball and tennis lines by preparing the nets for the tennis league paying participants.

Thank you! 🙂

Donna and Donna captured Silver Medals at the Oregon Senior Games held June 10 thru 12 at Pine Nursery Park in beautiful Bend, Oregon.

Donna commented after the game, “Judy played so well that I didn’t even have to wear shoes!” ?
