IMPORTANT: SOME SB RANCH COURTS NOW OPEN
The SB Ranch HOA has agreed to allow play to resume on all NON-DAMAGED COURTS. The following courts are off limits for the weekend. 1&2, 7&8, and court 15.
Players are asked to assess the safety of any remaining courts before playing on them. If you come across any fallen parts from lighting, speakers, etc. do not remove them from the courts where they have landed--just place them aside on the same court. Maintenance crews are expected next week and may need to access additional courts to make their jobs easier.
RIDGEVIEW COURTS CLOSING FOR RESURFACING
The Ridgeview Courts will be closed starting July 18th.
The courts will be closed for approximately one week, but this schedule may change depending on the weather.
During this time you may make reservations and play on the courts at SaddleBrooke Ranch or at the Preserve.
Remember that if you choose to play at the Preserve, ONLY the Onix "soft/quiet" ball may be used.
