Regarding “Pickleball players fighting for more city courts” (Bay Area & Business, Oct. 12): In Heather Knight’s column, she says, “The adjacent tennis courts, I noticed, were empty”, leaving the impression that the tennis courts are not needed. She might as well have said “the soccer field was empty”. The reality is that tennis continues to be popular, making it extremely difficult to get to a court on weekends.
Tennis is popular with young adults who have to work out during the week. Pickleball is popular among many retirees who can play on weekdays, hence Knight’s comparison on a Monday morning is a little misleading.
