Visit From Gear Box

Visit from Gear Box Marketing

Thursday, May 10, 2018, HSV had visit from Rafael Filipino, Marketing representative for Gear Box Sports.  The Pro Team for Gear Box Pickleball is on their way back from Naples Florida and the National Championships.  They were in a 42 ft. Gear Box RV and are scheduling stops to let PB communities play with and Demo their paddles which are the unreleased new Paddle line.

Since HSV has one of the largest ownership’s of their paddles they wanted to schedule a stop here.  Ian Tompkins set that up and reserved an HSV RV site for their vehicle.  The play and demo was held Thursday at 10 am which was attended by many of our HSV Pickleball club members.

Below are some pictures from the event provided by Greg Allen.

PickleBall Club Open House October 14, 2017

A Microcosm of the Village Attends Open House

Pictures and Narrative submitted by Joyce Betts

We made over 50 new friends at our Open House on Oct. 14.  Attendees ranged in age from 14 to 70+ and their backgrounds were diverse: some were in the Village house hunting, some were visiting for the first time, some had lived in the Village anywhere from three days to 17 years, some were golfers, some were tennis players looking for a sport that would be easier on their joints, one was a hunter, and one was a young, excited Fountain Lake student with her mother.

Twenty of them came to the free clinic for beginners on the following Tuesday.  Watch out for them on the courts and make them welcome!  Some of them appear in the following slideshow of photos.
