Pickleball news

Our new 2016-17 season will begin Tuesday, October 4. ALL PLAYERS will be required to sign a waiver for play during Pickleball club times. We had four lined courts painted toward the end of last season with four regulation portable pickleball nets. Still available for use are the two west courts with Pickleball lines and tennis nets. Our scheduled club times are as follows: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 2:00-6:00 p.m., Sundays from 3:00-6:00 p.m. All other times courts can be used on a reservation basis by sign-up at the court bulletin board.

Please note that the Tennis Club times are Monday through Saturday morning hours (schedule is posted on the court bulletin boards). During Pickleball club times we will try the following for court usage: An erasable board divided into squares will be hanging on the fence. As you enter the court please write your name in the next available spot. Maximum four players to a square. This will determine the group to go on the next available court. As your group goes to play please cross off your group; this will help in readying the next foursome.

Dues for this coming season will be as follows: $10 for SunBird homeowners and renters (includes end of year tournament and social, $20 for visitors (includes end of year tournament and social), or $5 drop in fee (does NOT include end of year tournament or social).

Please remember to wear proper court shoes and bring your racket. Balls will be provided.

For those of you who are just beginning to play, please feel welcome as there is always someone who will be more than happy to get you started. We do have extra rackets. See you in October.
