A note from Mark Tamblyn, New Court Construction Committee Chair
The PPC executive has approved the plan for the courts (click the link to view the plan) and the city is labelling it as the final version. I am very pleased we settled on this split version with two seating areas between the new courts. Eventually they will be covered. Both seating areas will have access to the existing courts.
Next is the tendering process. Hopefully it will still get tendered soon, but that all could change with the COVID-19 issues.
If any of you have questions regarding the new courts, please feel free to communicate them to me. My email address is email@example.com.
Pickleball Court Expansion – GOOD NEWS!
On December 12, 2019, Len Robson, Public Works Manager for the City of Penticton announced that City Council has tentatively placed the pickleball court expansion into the 2020 budget with the caveat that the PPC share in construction costs. Council is expected to give formal approval to the budget in the new year. This decision followed a presentation made by Graham Perrie, PPC President, at the City Council Pre-Budget meeting on December 10, 2019. A copy of the presentation follows.
Special thanks to Graham Perrie, Don Milne and Leo Gillich for planning, researching and preparing these materials for a very successful presentation.
Also thanks to all PPC members who showed their support by attending the meeting or assisting in any way.
