Pickleball Prohibition Speakeasy & Casino Night

The Villages Cotton Club(house) was packed on Halloween night with 1920’s glamour. Flappers, stars and gangsters danced the night away. Bankrolls were cashed in for chips at “Pickle’s Place” and there were rumors of bootleg cocktails.

A great time was had by all at the Pickleball Prohibition Speakeasy & Casino Night, organized with the joint efforts of the Villages Pickleball Club and the Evergreen Village Foundation. An event of this size requires many hours of planning and many volunteers. A huge thank you to all that made this successful fundraiser happen!

Our pickleball club is a supportive and inclusive group. Come join us. We play on tennis courts 5 and 6, the smaller pickleball courts are marked with yellow tape. The wonderful Mike Walias volunteers his expertise every Wednesday and Friday from 1-1:30 to introduce and instruct new players on the basics of the game. No need to sign up, just show up! Wear comfortable clothes and court shoes.
