Pickleball Decision: Monday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m.

    Monday, March 4, 2019 at 7:30 p.m., the Piedmont City Council will be deciding at the meeting whether to approve the Recreation Commission’s recommendation concerning an eight month trial on the tennis courts at Hampton and Linda-Beach. The hearing is in the Council Chambers at City Hall. The recommendation is attached; dual striping for the limited hours is noted.

“A core group of Piedmont players has attended several Recreation Commission meetings concerning pickleball and several City Council meetings concerning the Linda-Beach Recreation Area as Linda is slated for a complete makeover.  If you are interested in bringing pickleball on a permanent basis to Piedmont, your support and presence is needed.”  Piedmont Pickleball group

The Recreation Commission’s recommendation is based upon a report from the Subcommittee on Tennis Court Use and Pickleball, which suggests the implementation of an eight month temporary trial program which would designate specific hours for exclusive pickleball use at the Linda Beach and Hampton tennis courts as follows, with all other times being for tennis play only:

Hampton:   Wednesday and Friday – 12:30 – 3:00 p.m.

Linda Beach:   Tuesday and Thursday –  10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. –  Sunday – 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
