Pickleball courts may be in the recreational future for Logan City. At Tuesday’s Logan City Council meeting Mayor Craig Petersen said a lot of people have been asking for a Pickleball complex now that the sport is so popular in other parts of the state and beyond.
The mayor said the idea of placing Pickleball courts in Bridger Park has been discussed and there is plenty of room at that location.
“It’s the type of an activity that really lends itself to families,” Petersen said. “I’ve been a lifelong tennis player and the advantage of Pickleball is it’s, as Herm (Olsen) and I know that tennis is not something you pick up quickly.
“Pickleball doesn’t require a steep learning curve to be able to play it and have a good time. We haven’t decided for sure but at least we are thinking this might be a useful additional recreation idea.”
Petersen said the cost for unlighted courts is approximately $150,000. He said it is possible that RAPZ tax could be used to help with funding and supporters have also offered to help raise money as well.
