New Pickleball Court Reservation Sign-up Rules – Effective 1Feb 2019

Effective February 1, 2019 Pickleball will be able to sign up at the shack 7 days plus 90 minutes. The TC Board met January 22nd and voted unanimously for the change you see below.

When signing up to play Pickleball on courts 5 and 6, you may sign up 7 days plus 90 minutes in advance. Effectively, if you play at regular times, you can sign up at the end of your session for the following week. 

Example:  If you plan to play pickleball on Friday, February 8th, at 10:30 am the soonest you could sign up is February 1st at 12 pm.   To play on February 15th at 10:30 you would sign up on February 8th at 12 pm. (90 minutes after your scheduled play time).

  It’s always 7 days plus 90 minutes after your scheduled play time.

Support Pickleball, Support the Evergreen Villages Foundation !

Hello fellow P.B. members,
We are on our way to build our own Pickle Ball courts on the left side of the entrance to the Villages. The exact cost is yet to be determined. EVF board and the Club board recently approved $50K for soil, storm drainage and sound tests.
The foundation has been matching each donation received that is designated to the Pickle Ball project. The total is now over $100K. Obviously we need more and it wouldn’t it be fabulous if we had a donor that would pay a substantial part of the project so it would be easier to get a majority vote from the Villagers? Are you that Villager? We do need to be proactive to make sure that if there is a vote, it will be a positive result. A club board approved Ad Hoc committee is being formed by Aug. 1, to work together for that purpose.
To start the pickle ball rolling on developing this new “Lifestyle Amenity” and PB Awareness project, wouldn’t it be nice to have every Pickle Ball club member be a EVF Sustaining Donor supporting PB? We are seeking 100% participation and you can donate as little as $5 per month (less than the cost of a cup of coffee).  Wouldn’t it be great if all 100+ members donated $25 per month X 12 months = $30,000 designated for the PB project matched by EVF, that would create $60,000 a year? So, we are asking each member to commit to an amount that you are comfortable with for a tax deductible donation to show your fellow Villagers that you support the new PB courts 100%. 
Be a part of this great Pickle Ball facility project by writing a donation check to EVF or simply fill out the attached EVF form designating the Pickle Ball project. We thank you for your united support!
