Lifelong healthy activity is important to all ages. To help local residents, the Coastal Seniors of South Walton (CSSW) and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast (BGCEC) have partnered to support this effort by starting recreational pickleball at the South Walton BGCEC Club.
“We are so excited to be welcoming the Coastal Seniors into our South Walton Club,” said Taylor Goode, director of the Boys and Girls Club of South Walton. “This time of year brings more seniors to our area, and we are enjoying the friendship and warmth that this pickleball rec time has brought into our gym!”
Coastal Seniors have donated three nets to support open recreation pickleball that takes place every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 AM to noon in the South Walton Clubs gymnasium. The cost is $5 to participate. A membership card can be purchased for $30, allowing members to participate for just $2 per session.
“Everything is provided for you. We have paddles and balls for beginners to use, and we can teach you how to play in no time at all. Come out and join us for some fun exercise on six indoor courts, while supporting the BGCEC,” said Coastal Seniors of South Walton director Sandy Gulak.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast have a mission to enable all young people, especially those that are most in need, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. Currently, more than 1,200 kids are registered during the school year and more than 1,300 in the summer. The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast is a registered IRS 501(c)(3) charity receiving funding from contributions, special events, grants, and major donors.
Coastal Seniors of South Walton, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization for active adults ages 50-plus residing in Walton County. Their mission is to develop active senior programs that encourage older adults to stay active by using their skills, developing their potential, and continuing their involvement in the community.
CSSW annual membership dues are $15 per person or $25 per couple. Nonprofit organizations and businesses can join this dynamic, fast-growing group for $35 and $50 respectively. More at www.coastalseniorsofsouthwalton.org, or email email@example.com.
