Sun City Pickleball Club president Steve Oaks recently provided an update on the lighting situation for the eight-court indoor pavilion at Marinette Recreation Center. He spoke with club member, Rich Peterson, who is on the Long Range Planning Committee of the Recreation Centers of Sun City. An upgraded lighting system has been approved by RCSC and is in the 2019 budget. Also, awnings have been approved for along the top of the fences of the pavilion, to block unwanted sun (and likely deter birds from entering the pavilion). Steve Oaks and Rich Peterson worked with specialists concerning bids for upgraded lights and awnings. They presented the information to RCSC assistant general manager Chris Herring.
Pickleball, one of the fastest growing sports in America, is starting to make a splash on the high seas.
The sport, hugely popular in the Phoenix area, especially in active-retirement communities, recently was added to the sports offered on all 14 Holland America ships. And the line’s newest ship, the Nieuw Statendam, which debuts in December, will feature the game as well.
Other cruise lines, including Princess and Regent Seven Seas, also have added pickleball to some of their ships.

A Belgian television crew was in town recently, filming for an upcoming production which will highlight the stages of life. The crew has a number of international stops, but only one in the United States — Sun City. And one of the stops here was for pickleball at the Marinette courts. The director said filming began last November and he hopes to be completed by September. The Sun City Pickleball Club is to receive a video copy of the finished documentary. Here are a few photos from March 14.
