A Dollar to Play
Palm Creek Pickleball Club is joining the Palm Creek Community in supporting the Alliance Cancer Support Center in Casa Grande (alliancecancersupportcenter.com).
Starting January 6 - January 31, we are suggesting you donate $1 for each Round Robin you play.
A jar will be located at the sign in desk. Keep dollars in your pickleball bag, and be ready to donate each round. Cancer has touched most of us, so we know what it means to have a support center in the community. It’s a great cause and we don’t want other Palm Creek clubs to outdo us!
The Captains will decide when a 2.0 / 2.5 player should move up. 3.0, 3.5 Social or 3.5 Creek players need an assessment to move up (free!). Click here Skill Assessments Moving up/down for more information.
Latest 3.5 assessments underway below.
All bags must be off the ground as they are a trip hazard. Hang on the fence using a cantilever.
