The Latest Club News........
Palm Creek Pickleball Club Member,
We hope that everyone is having a great summer and that you are looking forward to returning to Palm Creek! The 2022 - 2023 season looks to be another great season for the Pickleball Club. We have lots of fun events and pickleball planned.
This year, a new General Manager has been hired for the Palm Creek Resort and Residences. In addition, the Director of Resort Hospitality has retired. Changes in management bring new ideas and new directions for Palm Creek, and some will impact the Pickleball Club.
Resurfacing of the courts: The General Manager is aware that many of our courts are in need of repair and resurfacing. Palm Creek is working with a contractor to get several courts resurfaced for this upcoming season. We’re hopeful that 8 courts will be resurfaced now and that 4 - 8 courts will be resurfaced every season going forward. Since so many courts were in need of resurfacing, the Club agreed to help cover some of the cost for this season only. It will be great having freshly painted courts again!
APP Tournament: With the tremendous growth at Palm Creek, the General Manger is focusing all of their efforts on the residents and guests of Palm Creek. Due to the impact on the Palm Creek Resort and required staffing involvement in hosting the APP Tournament, the resort has elected not to host the 2022 APP Tournament.
Regarding the Military Tournament: While this is a much smaller tournament, this tournament is specifically hosted by the Palm Creek Resort and not the Pickleball Club. The Club had offered to help with volunteers for this tournament. We await a final decision from Palm Creek on the status of the Military Tournament.
The Palm Creek Pickleball Club Members Tournament is a go! We are looking forward to seeing some amazing pickleball and competition at this season's Tournament in February. Always a great time for our members and an event that you’ll not want to miss.
From the entire Pickleball Board, we look forward to seeing each of you this season.
Your Palm Creek Pickleball Club Board of Directors:
Chuck Kenney, Steve Willis, Judy Dingwall, Dawn Vaughan, Diane Martin, Dani McLeod, Jean-Martin Verreault
