Pickleball is Coming to Nellie Gail Ranch!

Pickleball is a relatively new sport first played in 1965, which combines elements of tennis, ping pong, and badminton. The internet reflects all kinds of estimates as to how many millions upon millions of players now enjoy this sport in the US and worldwide. But what really caught our attention was a passionate group of Pickleball playing Nellie Gail Ranch homeowners who wanted a local place to play. 
The first feasibility discussion was at the June Board Meeting, which was followed by an August pickleball demonstration at which temporary courts were put in place, and demonstration games were played. After further discussion, a trial period was implemented on October 21st as we set up three courts and invited our homeowners and their guests to come play. Over the course of the trial period, we had many players enjoying the courts, and homeowner players organized several Pickleball Socials that drew a fun group to the Association Clubhouse. 
We want to be sure we continue to be good neighbors to those in proximity to the Recreation Center, so we carefully evaluated which courts would be best situated for play and which hours would be most appropriate for Pickleball play. At the November 19th meeting, the Board considered member comments and support and approved converting Tennis Courts 1 and 2 into 8 Pickleball courts. We are excited to be able to provide our homeowners with this new amenity. While the sport is often referenced as a favorite new sport for seniors, it has its origins as a family game, and we are seeing families and younger players enjoying it too. A Pickleball Membership may make a perfect gift for someone you love!! We invite you to consider signing up for a Pickleball membership at the Nellie Gail Ranch Tennis Center.

Pickleball Trial Period at the Nellie Gail Ranch Tennis Center

We again invite you to come play pickleball on a trial basis at the Nellie Gail Ranch Tennis Center. We have three courts set up through November 23rd; there are no applicable membership fees during the trial period.  Pickleball play will continue to take place on tennis court #1 as moving to the higher courts #7 & #8 as we previously planned was determined to adversely impact current tennis league play.  No court reservations are needed. Just come out and play! Please check-in at the Nellie Gail Ranch Clubhouse Reception Desk prior to play.  Please send feedback to admin@nelliegailranch.org
