I would like to see Prince William County begin the process of considering setting aside funds for the construction of dedicated lighted outdoor pickleball courts in the southeast corner of the county. Pickleball is among the fastest growing sports in the country and is particularly popular with persons over the age of 50. It is a source of exercise and comraderie among its participants that is otherwise largely unavailable unappealing to this age group. It is also a low cost means of introducing school age children to a form of exercise that will have them engaged and eager to leave their cell phones and video games alone for awhile. I would appreciate an opportunity to speak on behalf of our pickleball community at the next open Board of Supervisors meeting. Thank you, Dan Tomlinson, email wuffo1@aol.com ×
