Club Weekly Calendar of Reserved Courts for Members

While certain times on the schedule are not as crowded, it is still a courtesy to limit your time on each court to one game of eleven (11) at a time.   Once that game is over, please exit the court to allow another group of four the opportunity to play. And, if there are people who are not adhering to this, do not be afraid to say something -nicely- so that play is equitable to all.

Wednesday Night Social Drop-In at CFN Courts

 

We are pleased to announce a new social drop-in event to occur the first Wednesday of each month from 5 to 8 PM at the Cape Fear National Courts. Following our pickleball play (no later than 6:45 PM), we encourage participants to gather for a burger/appetizer and a drink at the Forest Restaurant. The patio will be open and available so we are looking forward to a fun evening of pickleball, food & drink! 

Player registration is required for this event and can be made through Signup.com under the link “BFPC Wednesday Night Social Drop-In” or through the BFPC Website under the link “BFPC Programs”. Signups will open 10 days prior and close the morning of the event. Due to limited space, all participants are asked to register and/or cancel within the allotted time frame.
