In late April the City of Surrey launched a survey of pickleball and tennis players to find out what their priorities are and where the attitudes are the same or different. You can see our blog post in this news section. Thanks to the broader pickleball community for responding.
The results of that survey are in. The City presented the results to its Outdoor Sports Advisory Committee (OSAC) of which the Surrey Pickleball Club's president is a member. While some of the similarities are interesting, the differences - and why pickleball has to be treated different than tennis - is notable. OSAC has is now forming a Pickleball and Tennis Strategy review committee.
The summary of the survey can be found here.
