Planning for the Future of Pickleball on November 18

At a special meeting of the Parks and Recreation Commission on November 18 at 6:00 p.m., the Commission will consider a proposal from the Goleta Valley Community Center to renovate the existing tennis courts into permanent pickleball courts. The tennis courts are behind the Goleta Community Center building, located at 5679 Hollister Avenue.

The proposal includes the resurfacing and renovation of the existing tennis courts into four permanent pickleball courts and a fifth court that will be striped to accommodate both basketball and temporary pickleball, serving two recreational uses. All interested community members are invited to attend the meeting and/or provide input on this matter.

The meeting will be held virtually and broadcast live on the City’s website at and on Goleta TV Channel 19. Written comments may be submitted via email to at least 24 hours prior to the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting.

The meeting agenda, instructions for participating in the meeting to provide oral comments, details of the proposed project, and other meeting materials will be available here on the City’s website approximately 72 hours in advance of the meeting. Questions about the project can be directed to the Goleta Valley Community Center at 805-967-1237. Questions related to the meeting can be directed to JoAnne Plummer, Parks and Recreation Manager, at
