PPPA – WEEKLY EMAIL BLAST


In this week's blast:


        UPDATE ON VENEZIA PICKLEBALL COURTS

    Based on additional member input, I contacted Kurt Schroeder at PRCS regarding the missing gate and cracks in the surface at the Venezia pickleball courts.  The courts are no longer under warranty.  The post-tension concrete prevents small cracks from becoming large cracks.  The remedy will be to resurface the courts in the future.  I have not been able to get a timeframe for resurfacing of the Venezia or MVP courts but will pass that information on when it is received.

    I was told they would replace the missing gate as quickly as possible.
