To access the July 15, 2021 Board report visit <br />Initial Guidelines and Minimum Criteria for Pickleball Courts <br />At the first meeting of the Ad Hoc committee (Director Holt and Director Huffer), several initial <br />guidelines were set. To provide a thorough and controlled process, only District owned park sites <br />would be reviewed. Furthermore, due to the lack of preference of dual -striped courts in the tennis and <br />pickleball communities, only dedicated pickleball court development would be considered. <br />Based on the District Master Plan requirements, current pickleball court use, information gained from <br />meetings and interaction with the pickleball community, and past pickleball development projects, <br />District staff formulated, and the Ad Hoc committee concurred with, minimum criteria for the <br />development of additional courts. In order to provide a suitable recreational amenity, a new pickleball <br />facility should include: <br />ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICES - <br />403 West Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360-4223 <br />805-495-6471 1 Fax: 805-497-3199 1 I <br />
