Copy and past of my comment from the previous article:
“One thing I do kind of get a kick out of this “protest”. The 60 year old me does consider the fact that these are tennis courts made for tennis and people did pay for and reserve the time. The punk rocker in me admires the moxie of the pickleball players at the same time and I can relate. Reminds me of going in places we were not welcome to ruin other people’s time just by being in their presence.”

Chris, thank you for the lighthearted sentiment! Ultimately, we had no intention at all to ‘ruin’ other people’s time. The court logs, which we had in advance, showed abject vacancy. The video also shows 6 of 6 vacant tennis courts when we arrived, and 3 of 6 vacant when we left.

I think we can all agree that we were not welcome.

Unfortunately, this is just another publicity stunt by these pickleball guys to have something to write about. It’s like the person who gets in your face and then when you react they scream, “did you see what they did?” This kind of approach is self-defeating.
As an aside, there is an LA group that has purchased property and is developing a pickleball center nearby. Good news for all the pickleball players.
