  1. Pickleball courts can not be used for tennis, they’re too small, but tennis courts could easily be used for pickleball. So, if (or when) the ‘fad’ of pickleball fades, the space will be rendered useless. Why not just make tennis courts, so tennis players can use them AND pickleball players can use them? Is there some unforeseen demand for exclusive pickleball courts?

    • The nets are the same height too, so ideally one could paint both sets of lines on a single court, perhaps in different colors.
