The Ryon Park tennis and pickle ball courts in Lompoc will be closed to the public starting Tuesday, Sept. 5 during a renovation project expected to last into November.
The city of Lompoc is remodeling the existing tennis courts and adding pickleball courts at Ryon Park. The project includes turning two of the six existing tennis courts into eight pickleball courts; renovating the remaining four tennis courts; and adding fencing, wind screening and LED retrofit lighting.
That project is estimated to cost $650,000, paid for by the city’s general fund and approved by Lompoc City Council in 2022.
Mario Guerrero, Jr., Lompoc Parks and Recreation manager, said the new and remodeled courts will be invigorating for the city.
“We are excited to provide new pickleball courts and re-surface the existing courts for the Lompoc Valley,” he said. “Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the United States, and we are happy to provide the opportunity to play pickleball here in Lompoc, and offer related programs and events in the future.”
