Sport Courts / Pickleball Ordinances

Hi APA Utah,


At Cottonwood Heights we’re seeing an uptick in residents constructing sport courts on their property, particularly pickleball. As you can imagine, neighbors often take issue with the impacts of these courts. In response, we’re trying to improve our ordinances regarding sport courts and pickleball. We’re currently in the research phase, and I’ve only been able to find one city with pickleball regulations: Park City.


I’m reaching out to see if other municipalities have adopted ordinances regulating residential sport courts – can any of you provide examples in your cities? Any help would be appreciated, whether it’s just a link to your city code, or information on adopting such an ordinance.
