BILLIARDS CLUB

The Roadhaven Billiards clubs has nicest room in the valley, with 12 very well maintained pool tables that are kept in the finest condition. The Billiard Club uses the membership fees and other fundraising efforts to regularly replace the cushions and the cloth on the pool tables, in turn, keeps these tables in peak performance.

There have been a lot of exciting changes in the club recently. We have had many people join who haven’t played before. With our free lessons for new members every Monday and Thursday at 1:00 p.m. they are learning the game and having a lot of fun at the same time. 

Word of mouth is spreading rapidly and our membership is growing. The members meet every day at 1:00 p.m. for friendly competition and Monday and Thursday at 7:00 p.m. Our new event every Wednesday for couples at 7:00 p.m. has been a great success. Whether you’ve just started or been playing for years, it’s a lot of fun. 

  1. Who can use the Billiard Room?

With 12 tables in the room there are 4 tables along the window. On the wall of the pool area

that are for use by all residents of Roadhaven. The other 8 tables that are separately identified

are for use by members of the Billiard Club.

  1. When can we use the tables to play?

The room is open, and the tables are available to use every day until 10 p.m.

  1. I have never played so why would I join the club?

Every member of the Billiard club has free lessons available. We have lessons on Monday and

Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Also Wed evening from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The best

part is that new players play with people of their own skill level and as a result they are having a

lot of fun and learning fast.

  1. Do I have to play in competition, or can I play for fun?

We have something for every member.

Roadhaven billiard members play in 3 different leagues that offer competition for r those that

are interested. We also have open play every day at 1:00 p.m. There is no commitment required

If you want to play just show up. If you are busy that’s ok as well.

The group is busy during the season with making quilts with ditty bags for the homeless, baby and youth quilts, sweaters for children, shoes, pillows, linens, hand quilting of members’ quilts, crocheting, making ming trees and making items for the craft shows.

Many items are donated to various charities in the area.

There is always something new being learned as the group is fortunate to have many crafty people who love to share their talents. The bulletin board outside of the sewing room in the Apache Building lists the classes being offered.

We will continue to have our Wednesday night sewing for the Craft Fare. We have made many new projects this season and we always welcome suggestions for what people may want. We hope that you will join us on January 12th for the Open House. We always have many beautiful works that our members have made. Plus, do not forget about our delicious treats!

This season we are not making quilts for the homeless due to lack of a leader. As much as we appreciate your donations, we ask that you hold off on bringing sheets and blankets to the sewing room. We just do not have enough room to store them.

If the problem is of greater time or skill level than we can provide, we will suggest that you make arrangements with a professional technician.

We place a great deal of emphasis on current and future technology.  Our goal is to educate our community so that they might make wise decisions in their personal technological choices now and in the future.

FITNESS CLUB

Insert a meaningful line to evaluate the headline

The Fitness Club is one of Roadhaven’s largest clubs, with membership varying from 350 to 450 members each year. The Wellness Center facility is located in Phase 2, West of the Cantina and across Inuit Avenue from the Golf Course.

The goals of the Fitness Club include: to maintain the Wellness Center for the use and enjoyment of all members and guests, to offer instruction in the use of the equipment, and to promote a healthy lifestyle through providing educational opportunities on the value of exercise and proper diet.

Our facility is provided by the Roadhaven Homeowners Association and the equipment, maintenance, and operating is all provided by the volunteer Fitness Club. The modest annual membership fees go toward purchase and maintenance of fitness equipment and supplies, as well as such basic things as the steam cleaning of the carpets.

The history of the Fitness Club is generally of growth, from the start in the former pro shop to the doubling of size in the same location in time for the 2009/10 season. The continuing growth and popularity of the facility has made even that space seem inadequate at times. In the 2013/2014 season, we added the services of a personal trainer, to provide a professional augmentation of the services provided all along by volunteers. The latest improvement to the facility was the May 2014 replacement of the stretching and strength equipment. This involved an investment of $19,000, by the Fitness Club Board. This investment was 100% funded by the fees paid by the members who use the facility.

Check back later for updates.

To become a Fitness Club member, complete the entry form you will find at the sign-in desk just inside the door, and mail it as indicated in the in-park mail, with the annual fee ($25 single, $40 couple for the 2020/21 season). A volunteer will send your membership number via return in-park mail. Please feel free to sign in without a number until you receive it. There is also a $5 option for short-term visitors.

Check back later for updates.

You are welcome to visit the Wellness Center – it is open from 5 am to 10 pm every day. If you require instruction on how to use the various types of equipment, volunteers will be available to help you.

To join the Fitness Club, fill out a form available by the main door and stick in the in-park mail. The Board of Directors, plus a few volunteers, clean the facility once a month, so as a new member, consider joining the rest of us on facility clean-up night. The date and time for the clean-up will be posted in fitness center.

MEN'S DAY GOLF LEAGUE

Enjoy competitive & social golf on one of the best-kept courses in the valley

Join Men’s league and enjoy a little competitive golf. Get in on the Match Play Tournament. Team Play will probably be full by the first of the year. Try to get a part of the “hole in one” jackpot. Sign up on one of the weekly tee time sheets (on the men’s bulletin board in the club house hallway) before Wednesday noon and then show up at your assigned starting hole according to the tee time that you signed up for. An email will be sent Wednesday afternoon to indicate where your starting hole is. Questions, contact Email Ted Reisdorfer

Can’t play every Thursday? No problem! Just play the Thursdays that work for you. Golfers pay $2 each Thursday that they play. This is used to fund our weekly payout. We flight members according to their Roadhaven handicap with the goal of a payout to approximately 25 percent of the week’s players. Handicap flighting puts everyone on an even keel. The inexperienced golfer has just as much of a chance of winning as the experienced golfer.

Sign up on one of the weekly tee timesheets (on the men’s bulletin board in the clubhouse hallway) before Wednesday noon and then show up about 15 minutes before your tee time on Thursday.

You must have a seasonal or monthly membership, or a punch card to play in Men’s Day Golf league. Our league membership fee is $10 of which $5 goes to our “hole in one” fund, which is divided between members who get a “hole in one” during league play or one of our tournaments. The other $5 is used to offset some of the expense of our BBQs.

January member-only barbeque and our March member/guest barbeque. We sponsor a 2-day club tournament in March and a match play tournament starting in January.

Latest fundraising event and cause information here.

 

Team division starts January 6th. The guys form two person teams that play a round robin schedule. It will be scheduled as a part of our 1 o’clock tee time. Congratulations to the team of Jerry Jeremiason and Howard Larson  who placed first last season. Our Match Play tournament is also scheduled to start in January with signup going on through January 6th. Looks like BBQ time. It is scheduled for January 27th. 

No “hole in one” yet, jackpot stands at $515 and growing weekly. You cannot get a shot at the jackpot if you do not join Men’s League.

Come join the fun, laughter and camaraderie

Roadhaven’s Pickleball Club is already in the swing of things for the 2021/2022 season. The schedule of court activity is posted on the bulletin board at the courts as well as being part of the membership application, which are also available at the courts. The pickleball courts are located next to the phase one tennis courts and just across the canal from the shuffleboard courts. Our club president this season is Cindy Proctor, who may be emailed here. She is a great source of information on the club. Alternatively, you may also contact our vice president, email Marty Eckerman.

We have three courts located by the main tennis complex and shuffle courts.

Open play is listed on the schedule and is for non-members and members. 

If you are new to the game we have extra paddles for your use.

Ask any member you see at the courts and we will be happy to get you started.

The dues for the 2021/2022 season remain the same as prior years at $25 per person. Family or guests staying for a short time at Roadhaven may purchase a restricted membership good for 14 days for $10.

Members enjoy our tournament in February and the Can/Am tournament in March.

 

Of particular interest to those who are either curious about pickleball or are new pickleballers, on Tuesdays from 12:00 to 2:00 pm the club is hosting beginner lessons. We encourage anyone in the park to come join us and learn the fundamentals of our very fun, energetic, and highly social sport. We also have a club meeting each Wednesday morning at 9:30 at the courts to stay up to date on club happenings and plans.

While the courts do have scheduled times for anyone to play pickleball, whether club members or not, the best option for learning and playing is to join the club. Once you become a member, the club will communicate with you by email regarding activities.

Here is a complete list of contacts for the club for the current season: President, Cindy Proctor  ; Vice President, Marty Eckerman; Treasurer, Lise Jennings ; Secretary, Scott Faris . Now, go forth and dink your hearts out* *A dink is a shot you use to make your opponent’s next shot unattackable. To learn more fun pickleball terms, join us on the courts.

Roadhaven Photography Club Members,

Just a reminder about our photoshoot scheduled at the Superstition Mountain – Lost Dutchman Museum, Wednesday, January 19th, at 4PM. Here is a link to their address plus directions: http://superstitionmountainmuseum.org/visit/directions/

Please note that the Museum closes at 4PM, therefore we should park off-road to the right just outside the entrance gate, it should be available for our use (and a good place for us to congregate when we arrive).  Tom obtained permission from the museum for our group to enter their grounds after 4 pm (signs say no trespassing after 4).

The main takeaway is that our members should not enter the regular parking lot within the locking gate or they’ll have to move their car.

We should be able to photograph the unique antiques located on the grounds, plus cactus and the Superstition Mountains during the golden hour and sunset.

Please let us know if you plan on attending, so we can make sure we have enough parking space outside the gate.

SOFTBALL CLUB

The Softball Club is coordinated and overseen by a five-person Commission, elected annually in February, that seeks to provide a slo-pitch softball program that, as much as possible, gives Roadhaven residents who wish to play an opportunity to do so at a level that best reflects their skill levels and abilities.

Player ages range from 55 to 80+ including some who may have limited ball experience before arriving in our park.

Each year we expect to sponsor teams in the 55+, 65+, 70+ and 75+ age categories, plus a team or two in an “all ages” recreation league. Most teams participate in tournament play during the season.

We are always looking for new members

For more information, email us at rdhvnsoftball@gmail.com or contact any Softball Commission Member.

TENNIS CLUB

Weekly league tennis, club events, and popular social activities throughout the season

The Roadhaven Tennis Club has provided league play with other Arizona Parks for the past 30 years. The club has taught thousands of retired seniors how to play or re-learn to play doubles tennis.

The tennis club attracts active residents who want to achieve an active and social lifestyle. The club also attracts social members who have heard that the Tennis Club has the best parties. The club encourages beginners.

Whether a beginner or a seasoned player, bring a tennis racquet with some enthusiasm and join us in this great game. It’s not only fun but it keeps you in shape, whatever your age or become a social member and enjoy your many new friends.

Beginner’s lessons are available for all ages and we range from 55 to nearly 90. This exemplifies the variation in talents, and new people are continually bringing fresh talent and fresh enthusiasm. If they have no interest in tennis or are physically incapable of play, they can be a social member allowing participation in all club activities except those of leadership.

Aside from the many privately arranged games played within Roadhaven, there are organized competitive team matches and tournaments with other park teams as part of the East Valley Senior Tennis League (EVSTL). Each league team has its own Captain. League play includes one match and one practice session a week.

There are 6 proficiency levels: 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0. All teams at each level have a Captain that arranges the weekly competition with other resorts. Be assured, every level, including the lowest, has its joy and satisfaction, although because of the number of players on each team at each level, there is no guarantee that you will play league every week. Captains try to play as many people as possible each week, but it depends upon how many teams the opposition sends too.
