  1. @Makin it Happen = When Channel Surfing I have come across the Pickle Ball Tournaments from time to time and would stop and watch for a few. I seen how wild they play and how hard they hit the Ball. If that Ball his hit Hard and the other team misses it and the Ball is high enough, someone can get hurt there since they are sitting right there at the Fence and the fence looks to be just 36 inches high……..just saying.

  2. David you should get out more, go check the pickle ball courts at the park in Southwood. Although it appears to be somewhat of fad, it is an emergent religion out there.

  3. I have seen Pickleball on TV a few times and believe me, You might want to raise those Fences up to 6 Feet.

  4. What are you NOT telling us? I see just 7 Pick Nick Style Tables. Do pay to enter? Do you pay to Play Pickleball? Do you pay to shoot Pool or Darts? I see the Dart Area but not the Pool Tables.
