Pickleball in park

Residents want popular sport to have facilities in Polson Park

As you are all likely aware, the Vernon Pickleball Club is actively working with the City of Vernon to build a dedicated pickleball facility.

The favoured location is Polson Park, which my wife and I both support.

We are not residents of the City of Vernon but we do have a small cottage on Okanagan Landing Road and we pay taxes to the City of Vernon.

We also belong the Vernon Pickleball Club and play the game at existing venues whenever we are in the city.

The need for a dedicated outdoor facility is very obvious to us and we believe Polson Park would be a wonderful location. It is beautiful; it is central and will certainly open the park to local residents and visitors alike.

Indeed, the location itself will be a huge draw for tournaments. That will bring added stimulus to local stores, restaurants and motels.

We hope that the City of Vernon will look favourably at making Polson Park the location of choice for a dedicated outdoor pickleball facility.
