Summer Happenings

I hope everyone is having an exciting summer and are counting the days until you return to Sun City Grand.

– We have been busy both on and off of the courts. Craig Soubliere, Susan Konz and I have been conducting a court cleaning trial on one court with the new Tomcat court cleaning machine for CAM management. After the 30 day trial, we should get final approval by next Thursday with a final Demo for CAM. There are a number of Pickleball club members who now are on major committees. Craig and I have been attending all committee and board meetings throughout the summer making the clubs presence known.

– We will be having a 2 hour CPR – First Aid class put on by St Lukes Medical Center in Phoenix on September 11, 2018, from 1-3 PM in the Agua Fria room prior to the September monthly club meeting. This will be beneficial to all club members. If you feel that you will be attending, please send me an email. St Lukes needs a headcount.

– Lastly, Laura Fenton Kovanda is hosting a Friday Night Lights Pickleball team tournament on July 27th at 6:30 PM on the Surprise city courts. Divisions will be at the 3.5, 4.0, 4.5/5.0 level. The first 16 to sign up in each division will play a 4 person team round robin format. Players will draw for teams that night. Cost is $10 per person. Cash prizes and pizza will follow the event.

Please email Laura at to reserve your spot.

More to follow next week on our court cleaning endeavor.
