Letter: Pickleballers Have Rights, Too

I am responding to the letter submitted by Marilyn Cali about the pickleball incident. I was one of the two sitting at the courts that morning that said we were not using the second court. At that point there were six pickleball players, four playing and two waiting to rotate in. Approximately 20 minutes later, there were 16 pickleball players, four playing on one court since one was being used by the tennis players, and 12 waiting to rotate in. Yes, there were words from both pickleball players as well as tennis players. I eventually went over to calm things down, stating that we have 16 pickleball players and the tennis players were four. I said that not one sport dominates the courts, and that we must rotate each sport on both courts/Richard Corsini, Hayden, Coeur d'Alene Press letter to the editor. More here.

Question: Should the city impose rules on the new McEuen Park tennis/pickleball court that limits play when others are waiting (whether pickleballers or tennis players) to … say … a half hour at a time?
