RESULTS OF THE 2019 SOCIAL COMMITTEE SURVEY:
66% want events every quarter
59% interested in a formal social event
51% want a winter/holiday formal event
91% are willing to bring a dish to an event
Members varied responses as to types of food at events(pizza, appetizers, snacks, BBQ)
Members suggested more food and chairs at our formal event as well as new music and some changes such as a different food.
Other general suggestions included more competitive pickleball, adding leagues and ladders and round robin play for women and also using the Cape Fear courts more often.
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.
At BF Fitness Center Courts:
At Cape Fear National Courts (CFN):
BFPC has a calendar of socials for our members. Most of these socials involve open court play at the Fitness Center Courts as well as a lot of social time! While not all dates are set in advance, we want to give you an idea of what to expect for the year:
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.
