New Activities Designed for our Senior Members

We’re pleased to offer 2 new activities designed for Seniors to have fun while being active.  Give ‘em a try!

  • Pickleball: What is it, you ask? A fun paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.  The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn.  Join in on the activity that has become very popular for the 55+ crowd. Games will be held each Wednesday at 9:00 am on the tennis court. Never played?  No worries…instruction will be provided for beginners, by our own Karen Kullen. Everything you need to get started will be provided by the Association. For details and sign up time, contact Carol Garvey at: cgarv711@hotmail.com.
