In this week's blast:


Bear Creek Park courts update!

For those of you wondering, assuming etc. Now that the acrylic has been applied to the courts, they are  in a curing process, which is required to ensure that the acrylic properly adheres to the post tension concrete surface. This process and timeline is determined by the contractor. There is still additional work required, which is being completed as soon as possible to meet the scheduled opening date of 26 June. There is still electrical work as well as landscaping to be completed. PPPA will also be installing the plastic topping to the fencing as well as the paddle up systems. We ask for you patience as all of this work is completed. We all want to enjoy this new facility, but unfortunately it takes time to get it right. The purpose of this message is to quell some of the unfortunate misinformation being circulated.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact PPPA at: info@pikespeakpickleball.com

The next PPPA New Member Orientation will take place on Thursday, July 1, at 4:30 PM at the pavilion at Monument Valley Park Pickleball Court. The goals of the orientation are as follows:

  • To incorporate our new members into play at MVP and the Pickleball community
  • Gain an understanding of how the PPPA organization works and introduce new members to our governing board.
  • To sign up for organized playing opportunities which include those with guided instructions to help improve your PB game.

Of course, you will also meet other new members!  Anyone who is struggling (new and old) to get connected in our 1,000-member group should come and find the perfect place to join in.  Going forward these orientations will take place on the first Thursday of each month during our outdoor playing season.  Keep your eyes posted on the website calendar for upcoming events.  If you have your name tag, please wear it. All new members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
