Pickleball noise is causing many in the LA area to really complain about it, presenting many opportunities for some real fun. Pickleball is more than twice as loud as tennis in 70 decibel range but, at a much higher frequency when played with a plastic ball with holes like a wiffle ball. If you replace it with a metallic ball with holes, the noise is well over 100 decibels at an even higher resonance frequency

It has been great to see new residents being attracted to Plummer Park as a result of Pickleball. Thank you Andrew Soloman for your tireless efforts to bring Pickleball to West Hollywood.
