Pickleball...The Fastest Growing Racquet Sport in America!

      From the fund Raising Team, Shawne Cryderman, Jim Schlote, Ken Roberts and Bud Mottice:

SPA Members and Friends of SPA,

Congratulations on reaching the Phase One goal of $650,000.  The break down of how YOU raised that money is noted in the box below.


Why, you ask?   In Phase Two, we will work with the HOA2 board to develop a campaign to obtain sponsors and continue to raise additional monies to help eliminate more of the loans graciously promised by 10 of our SPA members. To repay the loans, we most likely will have to raise dues in the coming years.   If the 33% of SPA members who HAVE NOT YET contributed to the fund drive would do so, then we could proudly say that 100% of the SPA membership has contributed AND we will be able to reduce the number of loans we have to pay back.

Those members who have contributed proudly display their "Yes! New Courts" sticker on their paddle, hat or golf cart.  If you have contributed, but need a sticker to proudly display, please contact Shawne
