The club will be hosting the second annual charity fund-raising event this year for Soldier’s Best Friend (SBF) on Dec 16th, 2018 from 12noon until 5:00pm. During this season of joy and giving, we urge you to donate to this important local charity by signing up to “Play with a Pro” or by making a charitable contribution. Use this link Charity Registration Form to download the registration form with more details. Our Club made a significant difference last year in the life of a Veteran who could not leave his house, go grocery shopping or work because of PTSD or Brain injury.
Member’s that played in the event last year or just came to watch the games said they had a “great time” meeting the SBF Vets and staff and playing with club members and with the Pro’s. SBF will be making a presentation at our Club General Membership meeting on November 13th, 2018 at 3:00 pm in the Agua Fria Room. Come show your support and find out more about SBF and this year’s Charity event.
How to sign up or donate: Fill out the three lines on the registration form regardless if you plan to play or just donate without playing. Mail to the address located on the form or you can drop off your donation (cash or check)/registration form at the Drop-Off box located at the courts in the Pavilion. This is an opportunity to be paired with a professional Pickleball player and play against another pro/amateur pair for a fun 20-minute play/learn session. Our goal in is for everyone to have FUN and help us raise $6,000 for this event. 4,000 dollars is needed to train a dog/vet pair. At last year’s event we raised over $4000.00 or as we said, “a dog and a paw.”
If you have a preference and would like to be paired with or against men/women/mixed/PB ranking, note it on the registration form and we’ll attempt to honor your request. Our goal is to help Veterans in need, but we can still have fun playing and meeting new people while we support this important cause. PLEASE, we ask that all skill levels sign up to play. So, if you are new to the game, or an expert player, join us on December 16th, 2018. Pickleball is the fasting growing sport in the country! Think about this, you will be able to watch professional exhibition matches between Pro’s and at the same time, win some great raffle prizes (new paddles, clothing etc.), enjoy good food and hang out with friends.
