NEWS AT 5. >> WELL, THERE'S A CLASH HAPPENING ON COURTS AROUND SAN DIEGO, PENDING TENNIS PLAYERS AGAINST PICKLEBALL PLAYERS. BOTH BOTH USE THE TENNIS COURTS IN BOTH ARE FIGHTING FOR FOX FIVE'S ALONG. LET'S HANG. SHE'S LIVE IN OCEAN.

BEACH WITH HOW THE CITY IS CALLING IN EXPERTS FOR HELP. A LA NI. >> ANDREW MARIA. YES, BOTH PICKLEBALL PLAYERS. THEY WANT TO PLACE THE PLAY AND TENNIS PLAYERS. THEY RESPECT THAT. BUT BOTH ARE TRYING TO COME UP WITH SOLUTIONS SO EVERYONE CAN.

ENJOY THEIR SPORTS. >> 5 TO IT'S JUST BEEN AN ISSUE REGARDING FACILITY AND ACTIVITY I AGREE. THEY DON'T HAVE A LOT OF DEDICATED COURTS. NOBODY'S, YOU KNOW, NOBODY SAYING THAT THEY DON'T. IT'S THAT TRYING TO TAKE ONE SCORE AWAY TO IN ORDER TO TAKE.

OVER ANOTHER WHEN THAT SPORT IS ALREADY DOING WELL. >> THAT'S WHY THERE'S A PROBLEM. TENNIS PLAYERS AND PICKLEBALL PLAYERS SAY THEY WANT BOTH THE SPORTS TO THRIVE. >> BUT WHERE THAT'S THE BATTLE. ONE SOLUTION IS SOME.

OF THOSE DEDICATED TENNIS COURTS. >> THAT ARE UNDERUTILIZED ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BECOME CO USE COURTS AND THEN YOU CAN USE TIME OR ZONE MANAGEMENT TO SEPARATE THE CONFLICTING ACTIVITIES. THE CITY OF SAN DIEGO DOESN'T HAVE A DEDICATED.

PICKLEBALL COURT. THERE ARE SOME TENNIS COURTS WITH PICKLEBALL LINES LIKE THE ONE AT GERSHWIN. PART A GROUP OF NEIGHBORS STARTED DRAWING LINES. BUT CHALK BEFORE TALKING WITH THE CITY FOR A YEAR ON PERMANENT PICKLEBALL LINES ON THE TENNIS COURT. BUT.

THE TENNIS COMMUNITY SAYS THAT'S NOT THE BEST SOLUTION. ADDING THAT MORE TENNIS COURTS ARE ACTUALLY NEEDED IN THE CITY BECAUSE THE SURFACE WORKS FOR YOU. >> AND IT'S A DIFFERENT SPORT. DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULD COME IN AND TAKE IT OVER TO MALL.

IF YOU ACTUALLY SHARING A FACILITY WITH IT, IT'S IT'S VERY LOUD. I MEAN, THE PADDLE ON THE BALL WHEN YOU HIT YOUR THAT SOUNDS VERY DISTRACTING. IF YOU'RE TRYING TO PLAY TENNIS, I DON'T HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN LOOK TO THE FOLKS WHO DON'T HAVE.

ANYTHING. >> AND ASKED THEM FOR A COMPROMISE AS OPPOSED TO LOOKING AT THE FOLKS WHO HAVE VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING. I THINK THAT'S WHERE THE COMPROMISE HAS TO COME. THE CITY OF SAN DIEGO IS ASKING HELP FROM THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PARKS AND.

RECREATION ADMINISTRATORS BASED AT MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY TO MAKE BOLD SPORTS EQUALLY POSSIBLE. WE JUST NEED TO SEE A LITTLE BIT BETTER SPIRIT OF COOPERATION AND LEADERSHIP WHEN IT COMES TO ACCOMMODATING BOTH GROUPS TO THE PUBLIC.

>> AND HERE AT THE PENINSULA, TENNIS CLUB, THEY'RE TRYING TO ACCOMMODATE BOTH SPORTS. THEY SAY THEY WANT TO EXPAND THE SPACE HERE AT MORE TENNIS COURTS AND PICKLEBALL COURTS. THEY HAVE THE MONEY SET ASIDE AND NOW THEY'RE JUST WOR
The city of San Diego is asking for national help to resolve the battle between pickleball and tennis players, and to decide where each sport should play.
