We represent local Pickleball players who reside in or near Neal Machander Tennis and Pickleball Center. Kudos to Councilmember Nelida Mendoza, Dr. Bratcher and team First Serve Santa Ana who funded to get one standalone dedicated Pickleball court and permanent Pickleball lines painted in 2021 on the tennis courts in the lower side of the center, we get to play Pickleball on the weekends at this venue. We wish to play on weeknights for routine workout; however, there are no lights.
We have observed the standalone tennis court at Portola Park for several weeks and noticed there was very little use for tennis and it has lights.
The reason for this petition is for the City of Santa Ana to consider the following requests listed in order of preference:
1. Convert the tennis court at Portola Park into 4 permanent Pickleball courts with nets, or make it a hybrid tennis/pickleball court with permanent Pickleball lines of yellow color. We the Pickleball community would not mind doing a fundraiser to cover for the cost and helping build a stronger Santa Ana!
2. The City installs lights for Pickleball courts at Neal Machander Tennis and Pickleball Center.
The detail of the tennis and Pickleball court conversions can be found here:
