SunBird Sports Courts Ribbon Cutting

A great time was had by the Pickleball and Tennis Clubs on the morning of Oct. 4. The new courts were officially “opened up for play” by Christine Terechenok, president of the Tennis Club, and Marianna Buescher, president of the Pickleball Club. Layne Varney was the amazing emcee. Donuts and coffee were shared as people mingled at the sports complex. A lot of tennis and pickleball was played, fun music was shared, and the sound of laughter filled the air.

What are we doing next? Sign up for Paddles and Racquets on Saturday, Nov. 16. All residents of SunBird are invited to play some ball, cheer on your favorite players, or join us for lunch in the Horizon Room. There are sign-up sheets in the tennis and pickleball glass cases near the post office. Join us for a lesson, open play, or try a new sport. Julie will be offering a tennis special and a pickleball special in the Horizon Room. Anyone can order either special! We hope to see you there!
