PLANNING COMMITTEE

FOR THE NEW COURTS


It is an exciting time for our pickleball club as we all anxiously watch the construction of 16 new courts surrounding an even larger ramada. With this doubling of courts, and even more so in facility capacity, is the need to update our future use plans. To that end, in our May board meeting we unanimously approved the formation of a mostly members only committee facilitated by our Membership Chair, Doug Christy. A Board subcommittee updated our vision statement for our club recently to read as follows:

******************************
Strive to be a premier pickleball club
 for our members by providing a culture of …

Comradery and sportsmanship
 through fun and healthful activities
 and opportunities for player development

In a best-in-class facility
******************************
The objective of this committee is to create a draft 3-year plan for the new expanded facility to fulfill the above-mentioned vision for our club. Components of that plan will be presented by committee members to the full Board starting with our initial presentation at this year’s September 13th board meeting. We are looking for approximately 7 volunteers to be on this committee.

If you have passion and/or experience in the following areas that fulfill our vision, and not afraid to stay around and help during implementation, then this committee really needs you:

  • Comradery (friendships, social)
  • Sportsmanship (respect and understanding of the game/others)
  • Fun and healthful activities (safe and fun offerings)
  • Player development (from beginner to pro)
  • Best-in-class facility (maintaining and improving this incredible resource)


Since we have a tight timeline for our initial report to the board in September, and to be able to include those snowbirds who have flown away for the summer, we decided to have these meetings via Zoom. They will be 90 minutes to 2 hours in length and Doug will schedule meetings in July, August and early September (prior to the Board meeting). Our goal is to seat this committee within the next month.

If you are interested in becoming a member, contact Doug Christy by email, text or phone as noted below on or before June 10th:

Email: doug@provisioncoaching.com

Phone/Text: (520) 301-1516

Thank you for your interest and we look forward, with your help, in making this a premier pickleball club for all our members.

Memorial Day Round Robin Social

Saturday, May 28

Come enjoy the last Round Robin Social until the fall. We will start early to avoid extreme heat. The Social Committee will purchase breakfast snacks and juice so you don’t have to sign up to bring anything. Bill Foraker will provide the music and there will be prizes and lots of patriotic decorations.

Registration – 6:45-7:15 AM

Play – 7:30 – 9:30

Social 9:30 – 10:30

For beginners and new players, before signing up we ask that you have taken beginner lessons or were moved out of assisted play. It is important that everyone participating can safely play, knows scoring and positioning and has some experience with all the shots of Pickleball including drives, drops, lobs, overheads, serves and returns.

Parking can be challenging during our socials so we always suggest carpooling, golf carts or riding your bikes.

SAFETY NOTE

"Keeping hydrated while playing on the courts is good for your health
 and good for your game!
 It delays fatigue, helps maintain mental acuity,
 optimizes ability to regulate body heat and improves recovery time.

For play time up to 60 minutes plain water is fine.
  Anytime longer than this or if you are a super sweater (you know who you are)
or if the day is really hot,
 you will need to replace lost electrolytes
 like sodium either in your drink or in your snacks.
 Choose salty foods.

If your play continues throughout the day
 such as a tournament setting
 you will need to restore your glycogen
 (fuel stored in the muscles used during play)
by drinking sports drinks containing carbohydrates
 or drinking fluids consumed with carbohydrate rich foods.
 This helps to speed fuel to the muscles."
