The Villages High Twelve supports building Pickleball Courts! Building dedicated Pickleball courts is an important project for all Villagers. As seniors look to move to retirement communities, Pickleball is now the number 1 amenity they seek. These courts will increase the value of everyone’s investment in the Villages. Pickleball also provides health benefits for seniors. It is a low impact, low risk activity that improves balance and agility while giving a great cardio workout. Just as important, it is loads of fun which is great for everyone’s mood.
Recognizing this, The Villages High Twelve has made their third pledge to help fund the project. High Twelve generously pledged to give $1000 to The Evergreen Villages Foundation for the Pickleball project. This pledge brings their total pledges to $2,000. We all greatly appreciate the support we have received from High Twelve and the Evergreen Villages Foundation to help make this project a reality.
Mike Walias had his hands full matching up players and courts as 25 players descended on the two courts available for Friday afternoon’s dropin session.

I’m setting up a new web site for the Pickleball Club and I hope everyone will like it. For the moment, it is built on most of the material that Anahid has built up over the years (Thanks!! Anahid).
As we move forward we will be able to add new features and I’m interested in feedback from the club on what direction the web site should take going forward.
