Debate coming to your city soon.
I’ll stop playing Pickleball when you stop using your leaf blower.
Tennis takes many many years to play well. For alot of people they never reach a 4.0 level. Tennis is also alot of running. It takes quite a bit of time spent to play tennis at above a level where you are hacking balls.
Many people can play pickle ball decently after a few times. There is relatively no running if at all.
I have no problem with pickle ball but the biggest issue is they want to invade and take over tennis courts. Sound familiar? Yeah.
Yeah they are making noise but so do people who bitch and riot. Hello Portland.
As a USA Pickleball Ambassador, I wish those folks would come play the game. They would be hooked. (Having said that, I admit I rarely play Pickleball near homes.) The sound is not as obnoxious as they say. We are right on the courts, hitting the ball inches from our bodies, and no one pays any attention to the noise because we are used to it. (Tennis makes a “thwack,” Pickleball makes a “pop.”) Bottom line: A park full of active, noisy, seniors is better for a town than an empty, quiet park. Can’t we all just get along?
Yes, don’t you hate it when people who pay for parks and Rex’s actually use them for fitness and enjoyment?!
The aim of the crusty nearby residents is Grinchlike.
Give your heart a chance to grow a couple sizes or the alternative should be for you to move.
I’m sure some would place a premium of living near the park.
I vote for a gun range!
John, I laughed throughout this whole article. The first world problems just kill me...Well done!
I love it when the ostentatious complain about the noise. What a bunch of babies, move to the high dessert in Rome Oregon it’s nice and quiet there. BTW you can only use the lake if you are airdropped in and helicoptered out dumb.
Oh no pickle ball is making crazy, super Karen to the rescue.
Lots of PBall down here in Green Valley, AZ, & lots of old people loving it. But it’s in designated areas away from homes!
George Rodgers is a big park. It wouldn’t be too difficult to build courts further into the park vs the current court location that is adjacent to houses.
Next, let's shut down airports because of neighbor complaints.
So very sad. Too bad we can not be a bit more tolerant and welcoming to each other.
Hopefully gas leaf blowers are next! I find quiet, even here in the "peaceful suburbs", to be a rare occurrence. And while you are at it, get off my lawn! Charlie (Beaverton).
NIMBYS. More important issues in the world, like homeless people and how to help them.
A million issues in the World and some people worry about Pickleball noise..Boy or Boy what's next on the agenda?
Damn you...Nextdoor will pick this up and we'll never hear the end of it. (Pickleball huge in Central Oregon)
