Emergency Information

NOTE: IN LAST WEEK’S FRIDAY “FIX”, THERE WAS A TYPO. PLEASE CHANGE THE LODGE TENNIS/PICKLEBALL COURTS ADDRESS FROM 6672 TO 6872 TIMBER PINES BLVD. If you are at the Courts when an emergency occurs, it is important to provide the Courts’ address when calling 911.

With the amount of rain during play time lately, you might try our 4 new squeegees to remove water on the courts so they can dry quicker. Here’s how to use them.

--The new squeegees work best when slightly wet.

--Like a sponge when they are soaked, take them to the side of the courts to squeeze out the water. --To remove water from a court, start in the center of the court and roll the squeegee in a circle, gradually making the circle bigger pushing water to the outside of the circle.

Caution: Don’t take chances on slippery wet courts as you do NOT want to fall so you can play pickleball another day!!


The asphalt on the pickleball courts is in the process of curing which will take about a month. During this time, you should see work on concrete walkways between courts and concrete forms for shade structures. Perimeter fencing will begin once the asphalt has dried at the beginning of November.
