Pickleball Survey

The Parks & Recreation Committee has received many inquiries about pickleball over the past several years. Parks & Rec is looking at the possibility of adding pickleball courts at Windermere Rec Center. These would be separate from the tennis courts, and would have no effect on tennis.

We’d like your opinion – are you in favor of adding pickleball courts?

The June 2021 Parks & Recreation Committee meeting will take place on Thursday, 6/10 at Town Hall (520 Main Street). The meeting will begin at 5:00pm.
