Summer Potlucks

Our second Summer Potluck will be on Thursday, July 24th, on the East Center Patio. The potlucks are informal get togethers and we plan to do them once a month. We will have tables and chairs set up on the patio (in the shade!). You bring a dish to pass, your own table service and drinks. We can use the pickleball courts, the volleyball court and of the course the swimming pool. Anyone for PickleVolleyBall?? For details and what to bring click on the Potluck poster at the right. Ideas and suggestions welcome!

Summer Play Schedule

We will be starting our Summer Play Schedule on Monday, May 19. We are reducing the number of Focus Groups to two:

Focus Group 1 - 2.0 and 2.5 players (Tues, Thurs, Sat)
Focus Group 2 - 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 players (Mon, Wed, Fri)

We are also going to try some different ideas to see how they work. They include Mens play and Womens play on different afternoons and a Shootout format in the early evening at East Center.

Check the court schedules to the right to see which days you will want to play. Also, be sure and look at the 'Summer Play Guidelines' and the 'Shootout Information'.

You can verify your skill rating level by looking at your member information under 'member lookup'.
