An Important Message about Court Safety
from your Pickleball Board.......
Always play within your ability, winning a point at the expense of your body (or your partners body) is less important than playing in a safe and controlled manner. Please be aware of the protocols and equipment available:
- AED (Automated External Defibrillator): Each venue has one of these. They are hiding in plain sight (unless you are a woman). You will find one in the Mens Room at the Wagner Courts. There is a small sign indicating its presence near the entrance. The unit at Sage is really well hidden. This unit is on the back wall of the drinking fountain at the Sage Courts.
- First Aid Kits: The First Aid Kit at Wagner Courts is on the wall near the ice machine and drinking fountain. The First Aid Kit at Sage is in a basket hanging from the first sun shade outside of Court 3.
- Regarding addresses to use when calling dispatch: Please familiarize yourself with their location before you find yourself in an emergency situation At the Wagner Courts, you will find this signage right near the large court layout signage and on many of the court gates. At Sage, you will find the address at several locations. It is shown inside the Bulletin Board as you approach the courts from the parking lot. It is also on a pole that is near the shade canopy (center court). Please use your judgment regarding when to call 911, but it’s better to err on the side of caution.
- Contact the Board whenever a serious injury takes place. As a Chartered Club, the Board is required to report serious injuries to the HOA. firstname.lastname@example.org
