Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in North America. Project D-30 of the City’s current Capital Improvement Program (CIP) instructs administration to add six more pickleball courts in Legacy Park.

Set to start in 2022, the Recreation and Culture department has been researching the costs of this project. In doing this, they have also explored the option of retro-fitting the existing tennis courts at Legacy Park to pickleball courts as a cost-saving measure.

Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in North America. Project D-30 of the City’s current Capital Improvement Program (CIP) instructs administration to add six more pickleball courts in Legacy Park.

Set to start in 2022, the Recreation and Culture department has been researching the costs of this project. In doing this, they have also explored the option of retro-fitting the existing tennis courts at Legacy Park to pickleball courts as a cost-saving measure.

The Recreation and Culture Master Plan completed in February of 2021 identifies “if incremental pickleball courts are required, explore tennis use and capacity needs and potential opportunities for additional shared use courts and /or retrofits”.

The decision on how to proceed with D-30 will come back to council. To provide them with good information, a community engagement initiative will take place. This will gather feedback from residents on their thoughts.

As per Council’s Public Participation Policy, community engagement is required when there is a change in service levels.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    As part of the City’s current Capital Improvement Program (CIP), project D30 provides funding for six additional pickleball courts to be constructed in Legacy Park in 2022. 

    As a cost saving measure, the possibility exists to transform the current tennis courts at Legacy Park into pickleball courts. The Recreation and Culture Master plan identifies that the City has adequate tennis facilities and if more pickleball courts were required, the option to retrofit a tennis court to meet this need should be explored.

    The City of Lethbridge recognizes that outcomes are improved by engaging stakeholders and the public. To that end, we are seeking feedback from residents on whether they would be in favour of transforming the Legacy Park tennis courts into pickleball courts.
