  1. I’m a 48 year old male who just moved to the Villages and would like to inquire how to get involved with intermediate pickle ball.

  2. I plan to be visiting my brother who lives in The Villages, would like to know if there is open play to join in? Not a 5.0 player. I just love playing! Thank You!

  3. My in-laws live in polo ridge , I will be there back and forth from Dec-May . Is there an open play that I can look into while I’m there .. I’m a care giver for my in-laws during the winter months …

  4. Will be visiting during the Xmas holidays. Both 3.5-4.0 players. Any recommendations on a favorable location in terms of daily play?
    Do y’all play on Xmas? Hope so!

  5. Looking to see if any of your team leaders would like to partner with Trilogy at Ocala Preserve for some pickle ball tournaments or if you know who we should contact?

    • Haha, this is great Fran! Thank you for sharing; we definitely need more pickleball songs to enjoy around the courts. 🙂

    • Hi Jean,

      There are many courts spread throughout The Villages so it depends on what would be most convenient for you. I’m not sure about precise addresses myself, so I would think the best option would be to contact one of the local ambassadors listed here. They will very likely be able to give you some more specifics and recommend the best options available.

  6. I will be at the Villages June 23, a friend of mine is getting me a “visitor pass” for the day. I know nothing about the Villages, do you have suggestions as to where I should begin. I am a high 2.5, low 3.0 player. Thank you as I am very excited about visiting your facilities. -Sally
