My First Experience at Pickleball.

Today was my first experience being on a Pickleball court.  I live in Villaggio, a 55+ community in Palm Beach County, Florida.  We are considering putting in Pickleball courts.  In an attempt to expose Pickleball to our Villaggio residents, every Tuesday and Thursday they hold Pickleball demonstrations for those who are curious or want to try it.

I’m an avid tennis player.  I play tennis 4 times a week (weather permitting).  My first reaction to trying Pickleball was very positive.  Do I think I’d like to have pickleball in the community?  You Bet.  Not only would it enhance the value of the properties in Villaggio but would offer a new non demanding sport for those who would enjoy it.  I also think I’d like to play more Pickleball. 

Above is a graphic that I made to show some of the differences between Tennis and Pickleball.

10 Questions to Ask When Buying into a 55+ Lifestyle

 Assuming that you love a home or a particular 55+ community

Be Sure to Ask these  Contact  The Harelik Team with additional questions.

  1. The AGE of the Community or the home. Generally speaking, older communities and homes are usually less expensive.

  2. The SIZE of the Community. The size can generally tell you about the activity level.  Very small communities are usually less active.

  3. What do ASSOCIASION DUES cover? Some things may include cable TV, external painting, roofs, etc.

  4. How healthy are the ASSOCIASION RESERVE FUNDS or DEBT? If the debt or reserves are not healthy, it may end up as a special assessment later on.

  5. What does the ASSOCIASION INSURANCE cover? You’ll need to decide what supplemental insurance coverage you may need.

  6. Are there any SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS currently or in the future. You don’t want any surprises about special assessments.

  7. Are there any ASSOCIASION RESTRICTIONS that might not meet your requirements. Restrictions such as home painting, rent policy, parking, vehicle restrictions, etc.

  8. Do the AMENITIES AND ACTIVITIES meet the criteria you’re looking for. Some communities are much more active than others.

  9. How many UNITS FOR SALE in the community. A large number may be a sign of a problem.

  10. How are MANAGEMENT AND COMPLAINTS handled? Is it managed by a qualified professional company? Do they handle owners’ requests and complaints quickly?

55+ Communities, Palm Beach County before Hurricane Irma

 

As you can see from the picture above, Hurricane Irma is a force unlike any other in history.  The size, the intensity, the damage are unprecedented.  All of Florida is in it’s path.  Whether it veer right or left makes little difference.  The picture above puts hurricane Irma in perspective about how it will affect Florida.  

Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Lake Worth and West Palm Beach are in it’s projected path.  I live in Villaggio which is in the 55+ corridor in Palm Beach County.  It is likely that all of this area will be in the NE quadrant which is where the winds are the most dangerous.  

We are all shuttered up, have a good water supply and I got lucky today, I went to  Publix and they had JUST received a shipment of D size batteries (for flashlights).  They were all gone within the hour.  Water, gasoline and batteries have been extremely hard to find.  

The prediction is that the power in some places could be out for weeks and maybe even months.  Durring Hurricane Wilma in 2005, we were without power for 7 days.  Lots of bar be cues were used at that time.  Neighbors helping neighbors and food sharing.  That was the good part, (if there was one).  The rest was extremely hard.

I’ll write another post after it passes.   Stay Tuned
