The Camarillo Pickleball community recently lost one of its pioneers and Camarillo’s first
Ambassador to the USA Pickleball Association. Trish Zakas passed away on July 2, 2023.
Trish and her husband of 53 years, Len, became active pickleba ll players in 2016 when
Camarillo had limited use of two indoor pickleball courts at Freedom Park (airport). The group
started with a handful of players and grew to about 30 in the first year. As the number of
players expanded and outdoor courts became available, Trish and Len saw the need to become
officially organized. In January 2018, they became the first Ambassadors to represent the
Camarillo Community in the USA Pickleball Association. This put Camarillo on the map with the
national organization and created the opportunity to enhance the development of the sport
with other regions, both local and national. Trish and Len purchased the first pickleball training
machine and gave lessons at Kildee Park. They also established a Camarillo Pickleball website to
distribute information and obtain new member registration. Trish and Len played a vital part
with the growth and development of pickleball in Camarillo and Trish will be truly missed by all
those she impacted during her life. Camarillo Pickleball will always be grateful for Trish’s love
and dedication to the game!

Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District (PVRPD) has approved $1,400,000 for a pickleball complex to be located at Freedom Park at the former swimming pool area.
The Freedom Park Pickleball Complex is expected to cost more than the budgeted amount although the construction bids are not in. The plans have been divided into several phases as the budget allows. Look for details on the PVRPD Freedom Park page to learn more about project. Scroll down to the photos at the bottom of the page to see the plans and phases.
Camarillo Pickleball Association, a non-profit, is working to bridge the budget shortfall through fundraising efforts in hopes of building additional courts during the initial construction. Proceeds from tournaments and special events have been allocated towards the Freedom Park Pickleball Complex Campaign (FPPCC). Funds from sponsors of the annual Cam Slam Tournament held in July have also been allocated to the new court and donations are now coming in.
The Camarilo Acorn published an article about the Freedom Park Pickleball Project on July 16, 2022.
