I think you'd find that people in general dislike percussive sounds, regardless of how loud they are (and basketballs are definitely percussive when bounced).

Tools like nail guns, hammer drills, jack hammers, etc bother everybody. 

Pickleball is definitely highly percussive in nature.

 

Neighbours are seemingly far more tolerant of consistent, or droning sounds like lawn mowers, leaf blowers, pressure washers, etc even if those mechanical devices are technically far louder than a pickleball paddle.

People in general have little time for percussive sounds intruding into their homes, regardless of how technically loud they are.

 

Quantifying those loudness levels seems to be the only way the conversation can be moved forward to any degree though, so it's likely a good first step when considering that Pickleball appears as if it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

It’s a bothersome noise.

None of the people who play at courts next to someone else’s home, would want that noise next to their home.

When buying a home, choose wisely. Ensure you know what’s planned near you. Consult someone who can brief you if you’re not sure.

I think it's the repetitive nature of the thwack thwack thwack, not the volume as such. It never ends!

Yes. It’s very invasive and eventually it gets to you.

Good on North Saanich for having sense. All of the people upset over the decision wouldn’t tolerate an identical disturbance nearby. By the fact that they disagree with the closure, means they cannot relate to the disturbance and consider it someone else’s burden.
