I think the percent participating opposition line is weak. I would think a relatively small percentage of Villagers are involved in any single activity. And it appears to me that softball is right up there as one of the main activities in TV. The newspaper even compared its popularity to golf in a recent edition.

And personally, I'm not necessarily advocating for lights for the fields...just afternoon/evening softball, for which any added cost would be minimal.

I wonder how that compares to archery, trap shooting, picnic persons, woodworking, and other interests that have dedicated facilities paid for by amenity fees. My thoughts is that softball participation is pretty high. I'm guessing that the softball participation in the community may be one of the largest senior softball programs in the country.

According to TV salesperson, bowling is number one, followed by pickleball, water volleyball, then golf. Surprising.
More than players.

It is more than players. We were involved in church softball for years growing up. The teams played on county and now city fields payed for with tax dollars. Fun relaxing way to spend hours each week with family and friends. My point is that fees paid should be spread,out for all even though you may not acttively use some parts of what it provides. Somewhere fees are being used for what you like to do.
