~Playing Pickleball Indoors

Playing inside…

I have had a great week of Pickleball, and the week isn’t over yet! With the morning and evening temperatures getting cooler it is nice to find places to play indoors. So here are a few places to play Pickleball in northern Colorado – inside.

Venturing out from my hometown of Loveland this week, I played Pickleball on Monday in Greeley, and Tuesday and Thursday in Fort Collins.

I have played in Greeley several times over the last several weeks and I can’t say enough wonderful things about the facility (six courts) and the friendly groups of players there. They are fun, warm, welcoming and experienced players. It is wonderful to have so many courts available for play and the opportunity to meet and play with great people.

My first visit to play in the Fort Collins Senior Center was Tuesday. The groups I played with there were extremely friendly, welcoming and experienced. They have three courts setup during scheduled play, and when the gym isn’t being used players are allowed to setup Pickleball nets. Take a few minutes and visit the web site for Pickleball at the Fort Collins Senior Center: Senior Center. Scroll down the page to view the schedule. Again, I met and enjoyed playing some challenging games with several groups of friendly people there this week!

I haven’t visited the newly remodeled facility in Windsor, but a visit is on my list of things to do. Here is their October open gym schedule: Windsor Pickleball

Next up, is to play at the Chilson Recreation Center in Loveland, on the newly finished remodeled gym floor. Too bad they don’t have more than two courts available with additional play times.

I look forward to continuing my pursuit of experiencing Pickleball in and around Northern Colorado.

I also truly enjoy playing with all my friends in Loveland!

It is amazing that Northern Colorado has so many places to play Pickleball, and so many wonderful people to play with. The numbers continue to grow!

What a fun sport! Indeed!

 

 

~UPDATE: Save the Date-Ribbon Cutting and Play at the New Outdoor Windsor Courts

(Email from Eric) updated information:

All:

I have tried to contact George this week and have gotten no response (Not happy about that).  I stopped today at the work site and one of his crew said he is in Sd and will return to town Thursday afternoon.  The guy on site thinks they will be done next Wednesday so We need to postpone the ribbon cutting.  My apologies for postponing but I don’t want to have the Town Board show and it not be complete.  Therefore, until I hear from George a finish date I am going to hold off announcing anything publicly.

I will be in touch.

Good afternoon all pickleball players:

  1. The date of October 24that 5:30 has been set as the ribbon cutting of our 6 new pickleball courts.

  2. Please save the date and be ready to show the town board they made a good decision in building the courts.

  3. It probably will be close to dark at that time, so you can come earlier and be playing prior to the ribbon cutting.

  4. Eric, will be bringing meatballs and pickles.

  5. The reason for the Monday date and time  is that is the time of the Windsor town meeting , lets fill all six courts. 

I will be sending out another email with requests and data for indoor pickleball, please read all of the email.

Charlotte and Brian
