Peru Not The Only Town With Pickleball Issues

Posted by wlpo on January 16, 2014

ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) – A judge in Winnebago County has ruled that pickleball can continue at a Rockford park.

Neighbors of Sinnissippi Park filed a lawsuit in 2012 against the Rockford Park District, complaining about the sound of paddles hitting pickleballs. But yesterday a judge ruled in favor of the park district, saying neighbors should expect noise when they live near a park.

The losing attorney says he feels sorry for his clients because they’re going to have to live with “a nuisance and annoyance.”

In Peru, neighbors to 28th Street Park long complained about noise from pickleball.  The city in December decided to move the courts to Washington Park.
