Islandia’s newest Village Trustees, Raymond Bush and Victor Montanez III, spearheaded the Board of Trustees’ decision to include the construction of two pickleball courts to be added to the grounds of Village Hall.
The construction is included in the village’s 2023 budget and should be operational and available for residential use by this summer. In commenting on the new courts, Trustee Montanez said, “Considering the growing popularity of the sport and the difficulty to find open courts, we thought this was the perfect addition to our village.”
Trustee Bush agreed, adding, “Pickleball is great for all ages, especially for seniors who want to be active, but are looking for a competitive sport that has less physical demands. The new courts will be another enhancement to our local quality of life that living in a village provides us.”
