We had over 100 people Saturday at the Demo Challenge put on by Scott and Daniel Moore.  They put on a great Demo.  It was very inspiring!

Apex was awarded $225,000 from Jefferson County Open Space (lottery monies) for eight more courts and restroom.  Construction will start this February on the courts and restrooms.  Completion should be July or August of 2014.

Awww Outdoor Court

Report from the new courts as of July 1, 2014. The courts were full. Old experienced players and new to the game player were all having a great time. The weather was ideal. Cool and just a hint of a breeze. The crack of the paddles were ringing out. The scores were being called out clear and loud. Just warm enough on this summer night to enjoy the games being played yet not too warm to chase away the folks who had been going at it since the early evening. Play continued past dark as the lights came up and worked wonderfully. Fun was being had by all. Just then the time came very unexpectedly as the lights shut off on all the courts. A huge Aw was heard from players young and old as we all realized we were done for the day. People surprisingly did not break for the parking lot but stayed on for quite a while. Lots of visiting and talk of the game, the interest, and the things that only players understand. Truly enjoyed the benches, the pavilions and the company. What a great experience.

Thank you for all you did and continue to do.


Three inmates from the Fremont Correctional Facility outside of Canon City, CO won first ever pickleball championship inside Fremont Correctional Facility. See photo: L to R: Billy H., Nate, B, and Kevin P.  Note their somewhat untraditional paddles. The paddles were made in the prison furniture shop and are heavier than the commercial variety because the players were regularly going through the commercial ones every couple of weeks.  There is even talk of forming a pickleball league.  It is reported that players are learning that finesse is just as effective as slamming the ball…and that finesse helps their paddles last longer.

How You Know If You Are a Pickleball Addict!

Pickleball is a little like tennis, only smaller. It’s a little like ping pong, only bigger. It’s even a little like badminton, but played with a wiffle ball!

Come check it out or come play with us. Visit when and where to play.  See how it’s played.

Oh yes, the REWARDs are a healthier life style and a bunch of new friends!

Pickleball “Hall of Fame” Quote

We play with relish;

Put mustard on the server;

and when we are behind, we ketchup!
