New Court Update

The plans for the new court are still on track. A landscape architect is currently drawing plans showing the layout of the courts and associated facilities. The plans should be to Palm Creek management some time the week of December 5th. As soon as they have the plans the pickleball club will be given a copy for our viewing. If everything goes as planned I will have our copy of the plans at the club meeting on December 15th. Everyone at the meeting will have a chance to look over the plan and give their input. We still do not have an official count of how many courts will be built. If there are any changes to this information I will post it here.

A Saturday at the Courts


Thank You!



Lee Moore
It looks like Lee is lifting the net, he actually was just keeping busy while he was waiting for his prayers to be answered - " Please send help to clean the Round Robin boards and Please help improve my game".

Lee had one his prayers answered ...

Lynda Tebo, Judi White, Lorne Bjornson,
Noel White and Suzanne Scott
Once again we are reminded as to how lucky we are to be a part of this club with such giving members.  This team did an amazing job of cleaning the boards...
