DUES TIME- ONLY 7 MORE DAYS TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR DRAWING FOR ZEN PADDLE!  The Club website is now accepting dues payments on line for 2016.  Everyone who pays their dues in full on the website by the end of the day on January 31st will be eligible for a drawing to be held at Valentines Day Tournament February 14 for a new ZEN paddle.  Click here and pay on line..its fast, easy and painless…..just ask any of the 205 who have already used it:  Memberships.   If you do not use the internet for financial transactions…that’s ok.  we will accept  C-A-S-H or check…..just bring it with you next time you play and give it to one of our volunteers.  We will be posting a list of those who paid by 1-31-16…and asking them to remind those who have not paid to be good citizens. Regrettably, access to Club facilities will be denied after January 31 for those who have not renewed until they finally do pay.

Why do we belong to the Pickleball Club, anyway?  Because we get 4,745 hours of free court time each year?…we get to play with free balls 365 days per year?….we get 6-8 free tournaments each year?….we have about 25 parties per year, 156 ladder matches, and a chance to socialize with all our neighbors….for less than 9 holes of golf, or 6 games of bowling at sun city.  There is no better value in the West Valley.  We glad you are here.
The Pickleball Club would like to make a big showing at the Jan Petre Band Dance to be held on Friday, Feb. 5 at 6:30 at the Lakes Rec. Center ….  we have been challenged to beat the Italian Club, so contact Diane Durnell, and let her know you will be there.  Cost is a measly $3 for an evening of live music.  Dancing is optional but we think you won’t be able to resist.  BYOB.VALENTINES DAY FUN TOURNAMENT IS COMING!  Ken Frenzel has agreed to organize a tournament and party on Sunday, Feb. 14.  Sign up online…  Click here …no cost for this fun-filled afternoon. Invited guests are welcome, but we need to know playing ability at signup.  We will be honoring February birthdays at the tournament, so let Diane Durnell know asap if you have a Feb. birthday…..

Donate your old paddles for newbies to use in drills.  We are having more prospective and new members than loaner paddles….What a super way to put “old trusty” to good use.  Place it in the box with your name and “DONATION” on a piece of paper attached.

Bylaws Review Committee has looked at the Bylaws and recommended a complete overhaul due to several deficiencies and inconsistencies.  Your Board has accepted their recommendation and unanimously passed a resolution authorizing the Committee to proceed with its revision of the Bylaws.

General Membership Meeting will be held sometime in late February after I return to town.

Facility Improvement Fund…Send your ideas for facility/equipment needs to
 Is there a Landscape Architect in our midst?  The Board feels its vision for our Club can best be communicated with pictures, in addition to words.  The HOA will be reconstructing the Stadium Courts sometime in the next 1-3 years and renderings will help sell our vision to the HOA Board.

FULL DISCLOSURE:  The facility belongs to the HOA, not the PBC, and any proposed improvements must go through their submission, review, and approval process.   Just because we want something, and will pay for it does not mean they will approve it.



Steve Russ ( could use some help on morning of Feb. 14 manning a table at the Lakes Recreation Center for a new member recruitment event from 9:00 am-1:00 pm… Call or email him and come on by before the tournament.  its easy..just talk to residents about how much fun you are having playing pickleball.

Publicity Committee Chairman is needed.

NEW-Sponsorship Committee Chairman is needed.

Facility Improvement Committee volunteers needed.

Your Club exists only for YOU…and your pleasure.  Your Board requests that EVERYONE actively participate in the work necessary to see that our 350 resident members have FUN.  Click on this link and volunteer…How-Can-I-Help  We could use twenty more members to share the load so no one gets burned out…..and….you get to put your own brand on our “product”.

See you on the courts.
