End of Season Party


Great Food +




Great Friends =


A Great Time !
This get together was enjoyed by all, the tables were set, there was more food than we could eat; although unusual we even had too much desert!  With music in the background everyone had fun circulating from table to table. Summer play once again has been a lot of fun for all!

End of Season

Many of you may think that the only Pickleball Season at Palm Creek is when you are here for the Winter months.  During the Summer months, Pickleball is very active.  No one is deterred by the heat or having to bring their own water or their own balls. On average 4-8 courts have been busy all season, with always a few players sitting out. Early morning play is enjoyed, with no chattering teeth or ice on the balls.  A few fans are set up for when sitting around between games. Last week the players were enjoying fresh fruit and cookies!  Palm Creek, Mission Royale and Robson Ranch united and rotated venues for playing. A great job was done with organizing the Summer League. The occasional evening pool parties with water volleyball were an extra bonus for a good time. In addition to good play, this summer league afforded everyone the opportunity to make new and lasting friendships;  this is the key element that makes Palm Creek and Pickleball the game of choice.
As the season is coming to an end it is time for one more fun Summer get together. If you are a pickler and your here do come...

As a reminder the new season starts Sunday, October 16th, balls will be supplied on the courts at that time.
