Played again yesterday. The areas where the air was moving under the screens onto the courts were definitely drying faster. Who knows how many injuries this will help prevent. A very good thing. The air moving across the courts does not seem much worse to me than with the old screens. I simply adjust my game, just like on the golf course. Not a big deal.

Your opinion, the wind really wasn't blowing that hard yesterday. IMO the low humidity probably dried the courts quicker, my opinion.

In the end, I'd rather have full screens. But, I can live with the new ones. Looks like that is the path to peace.

Peace! What happen to the standard of excellents, some courts have 6 foot screen at top leaving 3 foot gap and the bottom, some have them mounted in the low middle, 1 foot the bottom two foot at the top. IMO if they are going cheap to 6 foot screen then 1 foot off the bottom works best, at least it blocks some wind down low won't kill the ball as bad. IMO the 9' screens rolled up 3 foot is unacceptable. The wind blows the rolled up section out in the court and reduces playing field. Not important for low level players that don't move. Bottom line they asked pickleball community and tennis players want the wanted and the done the opposite. Why ask if you not going to listen. Why not just say we are not replacing 9 foot screen, they cost more 6 foot will due, so do we get deduction in monthly amenities with all the money savings.? No they just spend it on golf.
