Ken Reichardt started this petition to BBC Board of Directors

We the undersigned petition the Board of Directors of the Bonita Bay Club to:

Adopt a plan to add 5 Pickleball courts on tennis courts 4 & 5. In addition we petition to delay for one year any decision on capacity for tennis and croquet in order to assess the results for all sports.

The rational for this petition is as follows:

1. BBC should design and operate “Premier” facilities for all its amenities including Pickleball

2. Option 18 offers a Pickleball facility below the "Premier" standard of other BBC amenities.

3. It should be important to provide consistency of value for all sports members. Option 18 does not provide this for sports members who only play Pickleball.

4. Since the participation data strongly demonstrates considerable excess capacity in tennis and croquet, the additional costs of the proposed plan and the disruption of the parking lot and water main are totally unnecessary. With significant capital requirements for golf renovation, prudent BBC spending is critical.

5. A significant number of the new members are active Pickleball players and many of the new golf members want to learn Pickleball indicating a strong pattern for continued growth. Pickleball nationally has of course been the fastest growing sport particularly among BBC’s demographics.

In summary, we believe that it is in the best overall interest of the Bonita Bay Club ( not merely for Pickleball players) to make the best use of its real estate and financial assets and in keeping with “The Bonita Bay Way” build a “Premier” Pickleball amenity including 5 courts (one being a Championship Court) on tennis courts 4 and 5.

Accordingly we urge the Board of Directors to reconsider its prior decision.

Thank you,
