Action Alert: Public input needed regarding dedicated outdoor pickleball courts in Bellevue
The city of Bellevue is considering converting the single Sunset Park tennis court into two or three dedicated pickleball courts. (Unfortunately, this tennis court is too small to comfortably fit four pickleball courts.) The city is seeking public comments by June 6 at which point we expect them to tally the votes “for” and “against” this project. We need pickleball enthusiasts to stand up and be counted. Please send an email to Lynde Wallick today to voice your support for this project. If you live or work in Bellevue, make sure you include your address. If you don’t live in Bellevue but play pickleball in Bellevue, mention where and when you play.
If you prefer indoor play to outdoor play, write in support of this outdoor project anyway. If the people who prefer outdoor play get to play outdoor, there will be less competition to access the indoor courts, and everyone will be happier.
If you would like the city to provide even more support for outdoor pickleball courts, feel free to include this request in your email as well. Remember to be nice. Lynde Wallick is your friend. Really.
If you would like the city of Bellevue to provide more support for indoor pickleball, keep in mind that this is probably something that is outside of Lynde’s area of responsibility. Be extra nice and ask her to pass your indoor pickleball request to the appropriate person, or better yet ask her for their contact information so you can contact them directly.
New lights at the South Park Gym!The South Park Community Center Gym's lights were upgraded. It has made a huge difference. The new lights are much better than the old ones.
