05/07/2024 12:00 PM




CEU Fee:  $5/PRPS Members      $10/Non-members

Join us for this in-depth discussion on the acoustical dynamics of Pickleball.  What is it about the sound that makes it unpleasant? How does it affect others? What can be done to neutralize the racket?  Can it be mitigated with new products or techniques?  

Using a real case study, our presenters will explore this important park issue in detail. Experts from the Institute of Noise Control Engineers (INCE) will be on hand to provide information, assess options and answer your questions. In addition, we will look at positive actions agencies can take to minimize potential conflicts with users and residents.

Please make plans to join us for this informative session.
