This is what the courts looked liked from the air
On Monday, June 4th construction of our NEW Pickleball Complex will begin! We have chalked the 4 tennis courts at the Boys and Girls Club on highway 7 so we can still play some outdoor pickleball while the new courts are under construction. These 4 courts will be available for play every day. However, there will be no reserving of courts. All play will be Open Play. There will be no Ladder Play until we get in our new home. Any groups that want to get together please be considerate of other players,(including tennis players.) We do not have exclusive rights to these courts. We will only have 4 courts. Everyone can’t play from 8:00 – 11:00 AM. Consider alternative times. The club will not keep balls at the courts. Y’all will have to bring your own.
The 6 indoor courts at the 2 churches may suddenly get much busier. Please be patient.
I will give y’all updates and additional info. re: how things will work in our new home as we progress.

As Randy mentioned in the previous post, these courts will provide backups as the Hot Springs Village new courts are being built.

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.
