Another Pickleball court coming to Barnegat Light, New Jersey?

The coming year’s budget contains a plan that Barnegat Light will get another pickleball court on West 10th Street, by popular demand of people who love the sport that’s described to combine touches of badminton, tennis and table tennis. A court would be the second one in town and is planned to be ready on the western end of the basketball court by the next summer season.

“We had so many enjoying the first one that we’re putting in a second one,” said Dottie Reynolds, the council member who chairs the beaches and parks committee.

The court will go in the place of a basketball half-court at the end of a full court, the half-court being “hardly ever used,” Reynolds said. “So we thought this was a good use.

“It’s not an expensive thing; we already have the surface, so it’ll be the cost of the nets and drawing the lines,” Reynolds said.

An exact cost estimate is not available yet because the project would have to be placed out to bid, said borough Chief Financial Officer Kathleen Flanagan.
