What a racket!

By The Canary

Tennis players and pickleball players are frenemies who simply cannot share a court—and the battle over volleying space is getting tense in Solvang.  Hans Christian Andersen Park hosts the city’s only two pickleball courts but they’re on the verge of closure with cracking and drainage issues.  “The current courts are getting to the point where it could become a safety hazard,” said Parks and Recreation Director Jenny McClurg.  Oof. Sounds like a pretty serious court case, amirite?  The city of Solvang doesn’t seem that interested in repairing the damage just yet because there are master plans that need updating!
