Pickleball     fospc.com

The first Pickleball Court was constructed in the summer of 2014 and is located on the south side of the Activity Center. Two Additional Pickleball Courts were constructed in 2021 in the same area.

League play January - February     *     Open play evenings    *     Courts open 7am - 9pm

FOS now has three Pickleball courts! Come and enjoy the fastest growing sport in America! If you would like to become a member of the FOS Pickleball Club (FOSPC), please go to https://fospc.com/membership. Membership is only $20 per player per year! For membership benefits, please go to https://fospc.com/membership-benefits.


All three courts may be reserved online by Club members and all FOS residents. There is a two-week window for reservations. Feel free to lock in your court times online....and be certain to cancel your slot should you be unable to keep your time. That was a problem with the old clipboard method. We now have no excuse for leaving a court unused due to no shows. Let's jump in and see how this goes. Remember this is new and we may experience some glitches, so have patience.
For the reservation link go to:  https://holdmycourt.xyz/reserve2/index.php?date=2021-10-12&dir=fospb&view=0&mv=1

Remember the club ID for entry is:   FOSPB

Volunteers

Volunteers Needed
By Coralee Nockles

FOS is the place to be for friends and fun and activity.
There’s parties and concerts and clubs galore, golfing and movies and so much more!
But sometimes things can go unplanned if there’s not enough folks to lend a hand.
So how about you join the fun by helping out to “get ‘er done”?
You’ll make new friends (that’s how it works) and sometimes you acquire perks!
So send me a note if you agree to give some of your time for free.
The investment is small, the return is great; Now ask yourself, “why would I wait?”
Yes, we need volunteers to help out with various activities throughout the year.

If you’re interested in getting involved, making a difference, and connecting with our community,
please send me an email at ckninaz@gmail.com
