Ho! Ho! Ho!

Electric Light Parade

Each year Palm Creek enters the  Electric Light Parade which is put on by the City of Casa Grande.
This year our club has been given the opportunity to enter a Float highlighting Pickleball in a Christmas setting.  We would like a simple theme of Santa being the Referee and Spokesperson with 4 elves demonstrating Pickleball.
Palm Creek will supply the trailer and the truck to pull it as well as needed supplies.
We are asking club members who have some building skills and/or creative talent to please volunteer for this project. If you are returning to Palm Creek in October or the first week of November we need you to help build the float!  As Palm Creekers we take pride in being #1, this is not the time to let our neighboring communities outshine us.
If you are interested don't delay please e-mail me at

PS: Google how to build a float


Fund Raisers

As a reminder we are going to need some bells and whistles for the new courts! We are looking forward to this years Club Patio Sale to be a  HUGE SUCCESS.  Betty Fairchild has once again volunteered to chair this project.  Please bring with you any items that are resellable that you would like to donate!

Club Roster + Huntsman World Senior Games

I recently sent out an e-mail requesting player information to update our Club Roster.  This request received an amazing response.
An e-mail was also sent to the 60 players and spouses from our community that will be attending the Huntsman Games.

If you are a Palm Creek Pickleball Player and have not received any e-mails from me, please e-mail me so you can be added to the roster. 

If you are a Palm Creeker going to the Huntsman Games and not in my contact list and would like to updated on social events - e-mail me!

Court News:
All the courts have been poured and the posts are going in!
