There are two clay court facilities here, many courts, pay to play on these courts, many levels. Tons more hard courts, some drop in open tennis, but most people quickly find groups that are compatible to their level. You can play 7 days a week here outdoors. But beware, most tennis players pick up pickleball and it becomes very very addicting!

Snobby country club types (mostly ladies)don't like the noise. Thats why tennis courts should be separated from pickleball courts.

Ouch. I play at least 4 times a week at three different courts and have never heard complaints about pickleball. I cannot believe that this is a prevalent issue.

I wouldn't say prevalent but, did witness it at Chula when I played league 10 to noon.

During our lifestyle stay they had a special pickle ball clinic just for those in the program. That game is quite addicting. We did head down to Glenview to play tennis on the softcourts. It was nice, but I'm might give up clay court tennis for pickle ball. We also tried out the "platform" courts. It does play a bit different than our raised courts in Charlotte, but it could be the warm weather. Or it could be the village screens are newer, and the balls really bounce off the screen a bit. I think I like the villages version of platform tennis even better than the cold weather version.
