Enthusiasm for Goleta’s pickleball pilot program last spring was so overwhelming that the City of Goleta’s Parks and Recreation Commission voted to end the pilot program early and install two permanent pickleball courts at Evergreen Park. This was possible through support of the City of Goleta and a donation of two portable pickleball nets from pickleball enthusiast, Patricia Richardson.
Today, the courts at Evergreen Park are designed for both tennis and pickleball players. The west court is designated as priority for tennis players, and the east court (with added yellow lines) serves as priority for pickleball players. To keep the pickleball court nets in good condition, they are secured in a locked box at the courts. Pickleball players desiring access to the portable nets will need to participate in a training and complete a volunteer application before receiving the lock combination. Interested parties can contact JoAnne Plummer, Parks & Recreation Manager, at (805) 562-5505 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
