Pickleball Club Salutes Council, Coyotes also a Concern

Members of the Crown Valley Pickleball Club joined in a standing ovation for the monetary support the council has provided this year, for its pickleball courts. Coyotes in the area are also a concern for residents.

Members of the City Council were presented with pickleball rackets and balls at Tuesday’s meeting.

The council was thanked for its outpouring of support in creating and renovating eight courts this year at Crown Valley Elementary School, for use by the Crown Valley Pickleball Club.

Pickleball is similar to tennis, but played on a smaller court with a paddle and hollow whiffle ball.

Bill Smith, a Laguna Niguel resident and volunteer ambassador of the United States of America Pickleball Association, spoke on behalf of residents, for investing in a sport that physically and emotionally impacts so many.

Smith invited city council members to visit the courts, to witness first-hand, the “joyful sound of healthful recreation taking place.”
