Crystal Lake Park District Public Meeting May 20- Spoerl Park Pickleball Courts

Wed May 15, 2019

The Crystal Lake Park District has started a renovation project on the tennis and basketball courts at Spoerl Park, 7610 Pingree Rd, Crystal Lake.  Pavement has been laid and new fencing is currently being installed.

A request to convert the two tennis courts in six Pickleball courts has come to the Park District’s attention.  Pickleball is similar to tennis but played on a smaller court with paddles instead of racquets.  It is a popular sport that is growing in popularity throughout the Chicagoland area.

The Park District would appreciate input from neighbors of the park since we know that you are a primary user of the facility.  If you would like to ask questions, make comments or just learn more about the proposal, please stop by Spoerl Park for an informal meeting on Monday, May 20 at 7 PM.
