Given that the public tennis courts at the JFK Middle School are in deplorable condition, is there any reason why the proposed six pickleball courts at Ellerbrook Field cannot be designed as tennis/pickleball courts?

While $350,000 is publicly provided, donations are needed to cover remaining costs. I think that if the courts were designed to serve both sports, donations would increase.
