Parish President Joey Durel can be seen on GMA every Thursday around 6:40am to answer your questions. This week Joey Durel answered the following question, please watch the video attached to hear the answer.
I am a Senior Citizen here in Lafayette Parish and belong to a group of approximately 75 members that enjoy and compete in the sport of Pickle Ball. Currently, we organize matches nightly at various recreation centers when space is available. During volleyball and basketball season, we are not able to use these facilities. As we continue to attract players of all ages, we are undergoing growing pains with limited access to the available facilities. One solution would be the construction of outdoor courts set up similar to the tennis courts in the parish with lighting and fencing. Of course, additional indoor courts dedicated to Pickle Ball would be welcome as well since this sport is played year round. What can you do to help us with this problem?
