Seeking resident feedback on pickleball court construction

​Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in North America and the City of Lethbridge is looking for feedback on how to support the need for additional courts in the community.

As part of the City's current Capital Improvement Program (CIP), funding was allocated to construct six new pickleball courts in Legacy Park (project D-30), beginning in 2022. As a cost saving measure, and to meet the community need, the possibility exists to convert tennis courts into pickleball courts.

To help inform Council's decision on how to proceed with this project, the City is asking for community feedback on the possibility of changing tennis courts into pickleball courts in Legacy Park.

It's estimated that retrofitting tennis courts into pickleball courts would save between $150,000 - $200,000. The recently completed Recreation and Culture Master Plan identifies that the City has adequate tennis facilities and if more pickleball were required, that the option of retrofitting tennis courts may fit that need.

Tell us what you think. Would you be in favour of converting the Legacy Park tennis courts into pickleball courts? Take a quick survey here:

The deadline to complete the survey is December 15, 2021.
