With gyms closed and looking to stay active, I hope that you'll look into the creation of outdoor pickleball courts.  Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in America.  (https://www.nbcnews.com/better/lifestyle/pickleball-fastest-growing-sport-you-ve-never-heard-ncna992106  All it takes is some paving, fencing and a net.  Having never before played a sport in my life, I took it up at the age of 69 and discovered that even people in their 90s are playing.  What hope it gave me for my future!  When I was a child, there was NOBODY in their 70s, 80s and especially 90s doing anything of the kind.  The people I knew, who were that old, basically were, at that point of their lives, couch potatoes.  I ask you to please look into the feasibility of creating courts for those of us who hope to stay active while having a good time and getting to (distantly) socialize outdoors.  The people from my gym have taken to buying their own nets and creating taped-out courts in parking lots and basketball courts that are not being used for that purpose at this time (nets down because of the COVID-19 virus).  Pickleball is a pretty socially distant game.  Please see what you can do for us!
