Fall Senior Games
The Recreation Department hosted the third annual Fall Senior Games which involves a small sampling of what we offer for the Piedmont Plus Senior Games. The dates of this year’s fun was October 20 – 24. The line up of events included Pickleball, Cornhole, Billiards, Track & Field (1500m race walk, shot, discuss and fun walk), Table Tennis, Shuffleboard and Croquet. Each of these events were made available at NO CHARGE. The turnout was our best yet with 140 participants in the various events. There were a handful of new faces in the various events and we opened the door to a potential new venue for Croquet. A SPECIAL THANK YOU goes out to Christy, Chan, Charles and all those who opened doors at Arbor Acres for the Fall Croquet tournament. The facilities were eclipsed only by the hospitality of the staff and players. Maybe we can come back out soon to do it again?

What the heck is Pickleball?
See the "how to" play Pickleball [video]. Pickleball is a great sport that develops strength, agility, lateral movement, cardio and hand/eye coordination. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Brent Russell at (336) 650-7695 or drop in on Monday and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 to join some of the regular players.
