Bicycling Club


If you like to ride bicycles, have fun, get some exercise, explore many of the scenic parts of the Treasure Coast, and create a social connection with many of your fellow resort residents ... then the Free Spirit Bike Club might be just what you are looking for.  The Club rides for twelve weeks on Friday mornings starting in mid-January and ending at the end of March.  Generally, a couple of the rides leave from the clubhouse and the remainder involve racking bikes on a car and driving to a location on the Treasure Coast to ride.  Eight of the twelve rides are at unique locations.  Rides are established for beginner, intermediate, and experienced riders.  The distances range from six miles for beginners to over fifteen miles for experienced riders. You can choose how far you want to ride.  All rides are either on established biking trails or on sidewalks and have very minimal traffic or obstruction issues to worry about.  An average of twenty-eight riders per week participate.  You will develop a camaraderie with fellow resort members. Also, you will get to see all the beauty the Treasure Coast has to offer that you probably didn’t even know existed!  The rides are open to traditional bicycles, as well as, electric.  Many members of the club meet at a restaurant for lunch after each ride.  Sometimes picnics are held after a ride if the site of the ride has a pavilion.

Bingo

 
Bingo is a popular game that can be played for cash and prizes.  Bingo games are won when the player matches numbers on their card with ones randomly drawn by a caller. The first person to complete a pattern yells, "Bingo."  Their numbers are checked and a prize or cash is awarded.  The patterns can be varied throughout a gaming session, which keeps players interested and engaged.
 
Each week at least 10 games are played.  Generally, the first game will be regular bingo (completed row down, across, or diagonally) and the last game will be coverall (entire card completed).  The coverall pays double vs a regular game.  The rest of the games are based on prescribed patterns.

All pertinent bingo information for each game is displayed on an easy-to-read big screen at the front of the room.  Current and past call numbers are displayed big and bold in case you didn’t hear the call.

Bingo is one of the highest attended activities in the resort.  So come join in the fun and get well deserved recreational therapy by playing a game of chance, all while socializing with your fellow resort residents.  You just might make a little money, as all entry money is paid back.  BTW, just as many men play as women.

Bocce Ball

 
Best known in Italy and in the Italian communities of the United States, Bocce has been gaining popularity all over the country.  Bocce is a simple game and can be played by people of all ages and skill levels. Bocce’s origins date back to 5000 BC, where evidence of Egyptian cave paintings depict Nile Delta boys playing something that resembles bocce.  In addition, the game caught on with the Romans and Greeks.  The game is very easy to learn and beginners can do as well as the ones that have played for years.  Because of this, Bocce has really caught on in the resort in the last few years and it has been growing significantly each year. It is our hope that you will find bocce to be a very fun, if not addicting, game.

The resort has 2 bocce courts and they are being used a significant amount of time during the resort season.  In league play, 2 games are played each week between different teams.  Each team consists of 4 people and can be men, women, or any mix of men/women.  Each game is played to 10 points.

It is our hope that you utilize our bocce courts.  If you are new to the game and are a little tentative about getting a team together and playing in the league then get on the substitute list.  Especially, if you are unsure about playing every week.  Being a sub lets you play as much or as little as you would like.  We will warn you, playing as a sub will lead you to getting into the league as a full-time player the next season!

When
Saturday
 
Time
8am - 2pm
 
Dates
Mid-January through mid-March.  See resort calendar for specific dates.
 
Other Related Events
In early January, a new player instructional meeting will be held at the bocce courts to show people how to play the game.
 
A tournament will be held following the end of season play.
 
There is an informal group that plays Tuesday afternoons during the resort season.
 
Equipment Required
A bocce set consists of 4 balls of one color, 4 balls of a different color, and a small Pallino ball.  Many of the resort owners have their own balls, however, there are sets of balls in the cabinets next to the 2 bocce courts.  In addition, we have 2 sets of balls that are only used for league play.
 
How To Join
An email blast will be sent in December with details on how and when to register.

Team sign-ups for league play will begin in the first two weeks of January.

BOCCE BALL LEAGUE RULES
As Played in the Motorcoach RV Resort 
 
Basic Rules
* Each team will consist of 4 players.
* Each team will have a Captain – The team Captain may designate a player as an “End Captain”.
* Team Captains participate in the coin toss to determine serving team (If no coin, use rock-paper- scissors).
* The serving team throws the pallino (small ball) from behind the foul line (blue tape on sideboards).
    - The pallino MUST pass the centerline of the court and come to rest at least 12 inches away from the sideboards and backboard without hitting the           backboard.
    - If the player fails 2 times to place the pallino into legal play, the opposing team throws the pallino.
* Play:
    - The team that throws the pallino also throws the first ball from behind the foul line.  (blue tape on sideboards).
    - The opposing team then throws their first ball.
    - The team whose ball is furthest from the pallino throws the third ball and they continue to throw as long as their team’s ball is not closest to the             pallino.  
    -  If the second ball thrown happens to be equal distance with the team throwing first to the pallino, the team that threw the second ball will throw           again and keep throwing until they are closer to the pallino or are out of balls.
    -  Throw is determined by the team who does not have the ball closest to the pallino.
    -  Play continues until 8 balls have been played which ends the round.
    - 60 minutes after play starts, the match is complete. The team with the highest number of points will be awarded the win. If both teams are tied,             one more round will be played.
* For each court, split a team of 4 people so that 2 from the same team are on each end of the court. That prevents 8 people from being all on one
   end of a court at any point during the matches. Only 2 people from each team throw per match, rather than all 4 (each person throws 2 balls and         team members alternate throwing). The people on the side with the scoreboard always keeps score. Only the team Captain or end Captain may go        on to the court to determine which color is closer to the pallino and measure the distance if needed. When the round is over the other end throws.      That will eliminate teams having to go back and forth from one end of the court to the other (and thereby crossing paths with other players). 
    In addition, it will shorten the time needed to play because you don’t have to switch sides.
 
Scoring
* The first team to reach 10 points is the winner.
* If the ball touches the pallino, you don’t get an extra point.
* You can get 1, 2, 3, or 4 point(s) in a round; only 1 team can score points each round.
* Points are based on who is closer to the pallino.
   - If you are closest, you get 1 point.
   - If both balls are equal, you go to the next closest ball, which determines who gets the point.
   - If you have the next 1, 2, or 3 balls that are closer than the opponent’s first closest ball, you receive the points.
   - If you throw a regular ball (not the pallino) short of halfway, it stays on the court and can score a point.
   - If you throw a regular ball and it hits the backboard, without first touching the pallino or another ball, it is a dead ball and removed from play.  If a
     ball hits the sideboard then the back wall without hitting the pallino or another ball it also is a dead ball.
* The team that won the last round throws the ball first in the next round.

League Policies
* Each team is responsible for getting a substitute if a team member is not able to play. A substitute may be a member of another team that isn’t             playing at that time (except during playoffs).
* If a substitute isn’t available, a team may play a match if only 2 or 3 players (out of 4) are present, however, no player is permitted to throw more           than 2 balls, resulting in a penalty of 2 balls per missing player. If only 2 players from a team are present, they would throw from the opposite ends       of the court.
* A team without at least 2 of the 4 players present at the scheduled game start time forfeits the game with zero points and the opponent is awarded     10 points.
* If a team is not able to play on a scheduled league date (whether or not substitutes are available) then pre-play (prior to league play for that week)         is an option if both teams are fully present (no substitutes for pre-play).  They can contact the opposing team and schedule a time to play during the
   week prior to their scheduled date.  Their scores should be text to Evelyn Marbury at 479-435-1415 so they can be recorded.  If teams cannot agree
   on a time to play, the team that could not play will score “0” wins and the other team will score “2” wins.
* Forfeit Rule: All teams will make the playoffs at the end of the season unless a team forfeits twice during the regular season.

Tournament Policies
* Substitutes for the tournament may not be a member of another team on the league.

Bowling

 
Here in our little slice of earthly paradise, we are privileged to have tenpin bowling available just down the street from the resort.  Our resort community has fielded a bowling group for more than 2 decades!!  It's a great opportunity for meeting your neighbors plus to get the body moving in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.  Our bowling event does not operate as a league so there are no averages, no team standings, and no team competition!  It is just a social event where we bowl 3 games together as a group and it is for you to enjoy at your pleasure.  All scoring is electronic.  No work just fun!  The bowling facility is totally smoke-free.  Also, it has had a complete makeover in the last year.

Bunco Night

 
Bunco is a dice game ideally played with twelve or more players.  However, it can be played with a minimum of nine players.  The key is to have at least three tables.  With twelve players, the group would be divided into three tables of four, each trying to score points while taking turns rolling three dice in a series of six rounds. Once seated, the persons directly across from each other are partnered for that round.  One person at each table of four keeps score for each set of partners. 
 
A tally is added each time a player rolls the number of the round on any of the three dice.  A bunco is achieved when a person rolls three-of-a-kind and all three numbers match the round number.  For example, in the first round the object is to roll 1’s, in the 2nd round to roll 2’s, etc.  So, in first round, when a player rolls any 1’s they are tallied and the player keeps rolling all dice again until no 1’s are rolled.  If a player rolls 1’s on all 3 dice at once, that’s a bunco.  If no points are awarded, the player's turn ends and the dice are passed to the next player at the table.  Each round ends when a player has scored 21 points.  The game ends when all six rounds are complete. The player with the most rounds won is the overall game winner, with ties typically broken by comparing total points scored.
 
There will be a “high” table and a “low” table with as many tables in between as needed for the number of players.  After each of the 6 rounds the losers at each table go down a table and the winners go up a table (except the lowest and highest).  Ideally, after the switch of tables (ie after each round) one must switch partners and not play with the same partner twice in a row.
 
As you can see, Bunco is an easy game to learn and is a lot of fun.  And it is a great way to get to know new people.  It’s basically rolling dice while chatting and then changing spots after each round so you visit with new people.  To add to the fun, prizes will be awarded for most wins, most losses, and most buncos.

Canasta

 
Here is an opportunity to meet with your neighbors and friends every week while playing an entertaining and challenging game of cards in the clubhouse.  The card game is Canasta, a version of Rummy, played in groups of 4 players, consisting of teams of 2, with 2 decks of cards.
 
Even if you are new to this nearly 100 year old game, don’t worry, players of all skill levels are welcome to play.  If you are a novice, someone will provide you with an understanding of the rules and strategies needed to become an accomplished Canasta player.

Darts

 
Did you know that 16 million people play darts in the United States?  That broad interest is represented in the resort too.  That is why there are 4 electronic dart boards located in the clubhouse and there are 2 leagues that support the significant number of resort residents that like to play.  Each league consists of up to 16 teams of two (2) players each.  Teams play one other team each night, based on a published schedule.  Each player from each team throws three (3) darts in each round.  The game starts with 301 points on each team’s scoreboard.  The name of the game is “301”. Each time a player throws and scores the number hit is reduced from the 301 and the game ends when the score becomes exactly zero (0).  The first team to lower their score to zero (0) wins!  If the number hit with a dart takes a team below zero (0) it is called a bust and that player's turn ends right there, regardless of the number of darts he or she has remaining to be thrown.  That team's score then reverts back to where it was before the bust occurred. The only way to win is to reach zero (0) exactly.  Teams alternate throwing darts one player at a time until the game ends.
 
If you do not want to commit to a full league schedule but would like to play once in a while, you can place your name on the substitute list.
 
Where
The Clubhouse
 
When
Tuesday and Thursday (2 different leagues)
 
Time
7 - 9pm
 
Dates
Mid January thru mid-March.  See resort calendar for specific dates.
The Motorcoach Resort Dart Champion will be determined at high noon on the Saturday of the 10th week.
 
Other Related Events
A new player instructional meeting will be held the first Friday of January before the start of the season.

An end of season single elimination tournament will be held in week 10 for both leagues to determine an overall league champion for each league.  A tournament bracket will be created, similar to the NCAA basketball bracket, with the top seed playing the lowest seed.  The league champion is declared when the winner of the final two teams complete play.  Seeding will be based on each teams win/loss records from the previous nine (9) weeks of play.
 
The Motorcoach Resort Dart Championship will be determined by a face-off of the Tuesday and Thursday night champions.  They will play in a best 2 out of 3 game shootout.  This shootout will take place on the Saturday at the end of week 10.
 
Equipment Required
Each player must have three (3) darts. Darts must be plastic tipped, measuring no more than five (5) inches long and weighing no more than eighteen (18) grams.  The Darts consist of four (4) major parts, a tip, barrel, shaft and flight.  A soft plastic tip screws into the barrel and they are breakable, so it is recommended players carry spares.  The barrel is the part of the dart ahead of the shaft that the player holds onto when making a throw.  The shaft does two (2) things, it holds the flight and it adjusts the overall weight of the dart as in light, medium or heavy shafts.  The flight is the wings attached to the rear of the shaft and it provides stabilization to the dart when thrown.  Flights are breakable as well and it is recommended spare flights are carried as well.  Electronic Dart Boards are provided for play by the Association.
 
It should be noted with electronic dart boards that it is crucial that a player only throws a dart when his/her assigned player number is showing on the board otherwise any points will be registered to the player whose number is shown. 
 
How To Join
A note will be sent out in November or December asking people to respond if they want to sign up or if they want to be placed on the sub list.

One of the most difficult aspects of playing better golf is perfecting the “short game”.
The short game is basically considered shots made from 50 yards out to on the "fringe" of the green.
Mastering pitching/chipping/putting around the green will dramatically cut your golf scores.
 
Starting Wednesday October 11th at 1 PM and continuing every Wednesday (weather permitting), throughout the season, the clinic will be held on hole number 13 green area.
There is no need to sign up to attend just “show” up …
 
Lexi Dinyovszky will be leading the clinic.  All you need to bring is your putter, pitching wedge or what ever your favorite chipping club is.  Balls will be supplied.
See ya’ll there.
 

Line Dancing

 
Line dancing has been around for a very long time.  In fact, line dancing as we know it today has been very popular for the last 30-40 years.  We have all been somewhere and a specific song starts playing and the dance floor immediately fills up with people line dancing.
 
Ever thought that you would like to get up and join the dance floor crowd but are too embarrassed to join in because you don’t know how to line dance?  Now is your chance to change that!
 
The line dancing sessions will teach varied dances to classic songs most often played: some Motown, some classic rock, a little disco, a little Frankie Valli, a sprinkle of Zumba, and maybe a little country if the class requests it.
 
New for this year: the Canadian and American line dancing classes will be merging together.  They will be co-taught by Connie Cinnamon & Sylvie Pedneault.  Sylvie & Connie believe the blending of the two cultures will be very enriching and will allow everyone to learn about each culture's music and dances ... and create some beautiful friendships too!
  
If you are uncertain what it is all about, come down and watch a session.  These sessions are meant to be fun and instructional.  They are geared to a wide age range and novice to experienced skill sets.  I think you will quickly see what the benefits of low-impact exercise can provide for you and how much fun you will have doing it!  Plus, you will find that it is a great way to meet people in the resort and to have fun with the people you already know.

Mahjong

 
Mahjong is an ancient Chinese tile game played typically with four people.  It was developed in the 19th century in China and has spread throughout the world since the early 20th century.  Similar to the Western card game rummy, Mahjong is a game of skill, strategy, and luck.
 
To play Mahjong, one must possess the most recently published card that contains the winning combinations of tiles.  A new card is issued every year in the Spring with the purpose of keeping the game exciting and keeping players on their toes.  The game is played with a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols.  Each player begins by receiving 13 tiles.  In turn, players draw and discard tiles until they complete a legal hand using the 14th drawn tile.  A player must choose the proper tiles to match one of the current year card combinations to win the game.  When that occurs that player will announce MAHJONG!!
 
Be one of the millions of people who play Mahjong worldwide.  Come to the Clubhouse and join in the fun.  And meet some new people in the resort too.
 
Where
The Clubhouse Card Room across the hall from the fitness center.
 
When
Monday through Friday 
 
Time
1 - 4pm
 
Dates
Mid-November thru mid-April.  See the resort calendar for specific dates.
There is usually at least one group playing Mahjong each afternoon during the week at the clubhouse. 
 
Equipment Required
A Mahjong tile set is required for each group of 4 players.   With that said, several tile sets are owned by players in the resort so it is not necessary to own a set to play.
 
Each player must individually purchase a current year card which shows the sequence of tiles that each make a Mahjong.  That card can be acquired at this website via this link:
 
 
How to Join
All are welcome to come to the clubhouse to play or watch.  There are several Mahjong players who will also teach others.  If enough are interested, a class may be held.

Musicians Jam Night

 
Do you have a musical talent but when you are at the resort you don’t have the chance to “exercise” that talent?  Guess what, there are others in the resort just like you, who have been looking for an avenue to hone their talent during the winter months.  Hence, the catalyst behind Musicians Jam Night.
 
So, what is a jam session?  It is a relaxed gathering of resort musicians who get together to play informally without any preparation.  Going to a jam session can be an intimidating idea for many musicians - yet it can be one of the most liberating and rewarding musical experiences there is!  By the end of the season, you will have put your inhibitions in the rearview mirror and will have learned to enjoy the spontaneous musical collaboration a jam session offers.
  
The goal for the first session of the season is to form a nucleus group to get started and then rotate players in and out.  To form a nucleus group, it would be great to have guitar, bass and keyboard covered.  Rick Fox, the host, will cover drums initially.
 
A little more background on Rick Fox:  he was part of a host group for a jam session for 10 years and has been playing in the same band for 42 years.  His musical journey has spanned 57 years of his life so far.  If you are new to jamming, don’t worry, Rick has the background to pull off fun and rewarding jam sessions.
 
Now that you understand a little more about what Jam Night is about, come up to the clubhouse and let’s see what music the group can put together!   By the way, all skill levels are welcome.

Pickleball

 
Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the world! It is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong.  The game is easy to learn and appropriate for all ages and skill levels.  It allows players to work on their balance, agility, reflexes, and hand-eye coordination without putting excessive strains on your body.
 
Pickleball is a wonderful alternative for older players who used to play tennis, but have physical limitations such as hip, shoulder, knee, or other joint problems.  However, while pickleball is a great sport for beginners and those with some mobility issues, rest assured that experienced players compete against each other in fast-paced, challenging, and competitive games.
 
Here at St Lucie Motorcoach resort, we have an active pickleball community!  During the season, we generally have open play every morning from 8am to 10am.  If you already know how to play pickleball, then just show up and we’ll be sure to get you playing.  If you are new to the sport, lessons are available for both beginners and intermediate level players.  Use the Contact Information below and just let us know that you are interested in learning how to play.
 
Where
Pickleball Courts
 
When
Daily, 7 days a week
 
Time
8am -10am
For up-to-date schedule information, please join our Pickleball Facebook Group (Search for SLMR Pickleball).
 
Dates
Mid-November to mid-April

Other Related Events
We also hold regular ROUND ROBIN events and Tournaments. Joining our Facebook group is the best way to find out about these events, but they are also posted on the bulletin board at the pickleball courts.
 
Beginner classes are held on Monday mornings, immediately following open play.  There is no set time, but it generally starts at 10 to 10:30am.  Just show up around 10am with your paddle and let people know you are there for the beginner class.  There is NO CHARGE for any of the classes.
 
More advanced classes are available as requested.  These classes are geared towards players that have been playing for a couple of weeks and looking to bring their game to the next level.  These classes will cover topics such as:  Shot selection, court positioning, how to lob, how to defend, advanced dinking, etc. 
 
Equipment Required
The resort has paddles available for use if it’s your first time.  If you come out to the courts, you’ll see a wide variety of paddles being used to give you an idea of what you might want to purchase.  Paddles are relatively inexpensive ($50 to $175 range) and last virtually forever.  Balls are provided by the Resort Pickleball Club.
 
As for clothing, you’ll want to wear shorts and a shirt that doesn’t inhibit movement.  Probably the most important item is a good pair of “court” shoes. A “court” shoe is generally designed for tennis or pickleball and will provide substantial lateral support – since much of the pickleball movements are side to side.
 
Player Levels
The best pickleball games are when all 4 players on the court are of equal playing ability.  In an effort to match up correctly, we assign a number to all players (1, 2, 3 or 4) with 4 being the most advanced players.  If you are just starting out, you will likely be a number 1, but some players that have previous tennis or ping pong experience can start out higher.
 
Open Play Guidelines
In general, there is open play every morning starting about 8 to 8:30am.  During the morning Open Play, we ask that you follow these guidelines:
 
- The courts numbered 1 and 2 are for players that are Level 1 and 2.  Likewise, courts 3 and 4 are for players of those levels.  Note:  players can mix up within the court halves (meaning 1s and 2s can mix in with each other on courts 1 and 2).
 
- When you are waiting to play, place your paddle in the appropriate rack (there is one for courts 1 and 2 and one for courts 3 and 4).  Place your paddle to the left most open spot.
 
- If less than 4 paddles are in the rack, then games will be played normally (first to 11, but you have to win by 2 points).
 
- If 4 or more paddles are in a rack, then the games on those courts should be played first to 9 points (not win by 2).
 
Note:  Do not adjust games already in play.  In other words, if you started playing a normal game because no paddles were up, then play that whole game out.  The games to 9 points only count for NEW games that start when there are at least 4 paddles in the rack.
 
How To Join
There is no official club to join to enjoy open play. Just show up to the courts any morning during the season and you’ll likely find a group of people willing to get you acquainted with Pickleball here at the Resort.  You may also use the contact information below and let Tony know you are interested.

Pickleball Basic Rules
  • Pickleball is played either as doubles (two players per team) or singles; doubles is most common
  • The same size playing area and rules are used for both singles and doubles
 
The Serve
  • The server’s arm must be moving in an upward arc when the ball is struck.
  • Paddle contact with the ball must not be made above the waist level.
  • The head of the paddle must not be above the highest part of the wrist at contact.
  • A ‘drop serve’ is also permitted in which case none of the elements above apply.
  • At the time the ball is struck, the server’s feet may not touch the court or outside the imaginary extension of the sideline or centerline and at least one foot must be behind the baseline on the playing surface or the ground behind the baseline.
  • The serve is made diagonally crosscourt and must land within the confines of the opposite diagonal court.
  • Only one serve attempt is allowed per server.
 
Serving Sequence
  • Both players on the serving doubles team have the opportunity to serve and score points until they commit a fault *(except for the first service sequence of each new game).
  • The first serve of each side-out is made from the right/even court.
  • If a point is scored, the server switches sides and the server initiates the next serve from the left/odd court.
  • As subsequent points are scored, the server continues switching back and forth until a fault is committed and the first server loses the serve.
  • When the first server loses the serve the partner then serves from their correct side of the court (except for the first service sequence of the game*).
  • The second server continues serving until his team commits a fault and loses the serve to the opposing team.
  • Once the service goes to the opposition (at side out), the first serve is from the right/even court and both players on that team have the opportunity to serve and score points until their team commits two faults.
  • In singles the server serves from the right/even court when his or her score is even and from the left/odd when the score is odd.
*At the beginning of each new game only one partner on the serving team has the opportunity to serve before faulting, after which the service passes to the receiving team.
 
Scoring
  • Points are scored only by the serving team.    
  • Games are normally played to 11 points, win by 2.
  • Tournament games may be to 15 or 21, win by 2.
  • When the serving team’s score is even (0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10) the player who was the first server in the game for that team will be in the right/even court when serving or receiving; when odd (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) that player will be in the left/odd court when serving or receiving.
 
Two-Bounce Rule
  • When the ball is served, the receiving team must let it bounce before returning, and then the serving team must let it bounce before returning, thus two bounces.
  • After the ball has bounced once in each team’s court, both teams may either volley the ball (hit the ball before it bounces) or play it off a bounce (ground stroke).
  • The two-bounce rule eliminates the serve and volley advantage and extends rallies.
 
Non-Volley Zone
  • The non-volley zone is the court area within 7 feet on both sides of the net.
  • Volleying is prohibited within the non-volley zone. This rule prevents players from executing smashes from a position within the zone.
  • It is a fault if, when volleying a ball, the player steps on the non-volley zone, including the line and/or when the player’s momentum causes them or anything they are wearing or carrying to touch the non-volley zone including the associated lines.
  • It is a fault if, after volleying, a player is carried by momentum into or touches the non-volley zone, even if the volleyed ball is declared dead before this happens.
  • A player may legally be in the non-volley zone any time other than when volleying a ball.
  • The non-volley zone is commonly referred to as “the kitchen.”
 
Line Calls
  • A ball contacting any part of any line, except the non-volley zone line on a serve, is considered “in.”
  • A serve contacting the non-volley zone line is short and a fault.
 
Faults
  • A fault is any action that stops play because of a rule violation.
  • A fault by the receiving team results in a point for the serving team.
  • A fault by the serving team results in the server’s loss of serve or side out.
 
Determining Serving Team
  • Any fair method can be used to determine which player or team has first choice of side, service, or receive. (Example: Write a 1 or 2 on the back of the score sheet.)

Shuffleboard

 
Shuffleboard is a great outdoor activity to enjoy in the Florida sunshine and a terrific way to make new friends. The competition is good-natured even though all are playing for valuable trophies and recognition on a perpetual plaque in our Clubhouse.

Shuffleboard is played in a league format using rules adapted from the National Shuffleboard Association with two persons on each team playing three game matches.  Teams are formed by signing up and we have teams sign up as well as individuals who want to play, but don’t have a team mate.  In the past we have played in four groups having slots for 8 teams in each.  League play is conducted within each group with each team playing each other one time.  At the end of the regular season the team with the best record in each group enters the play off where the league champion is determined. Our season runs for 8 weeks starting in mid-January.

At the beginning of league, we conduct an information and rules review session followed by a visit to the 4 courts where any additional questions can be answered and participants can practice.  No specific skill is needed, only the ability to push a disk down the court.  The courts have been installed compliant with outdoor shuffleboard requirements for ease of disk travel and we use specialized beads to enhance the sliding.  Courts are always open for practice.

2024 Shuffle Board Rules for Motorcoach Resort St Lucie West
 
Rules are excerpts from “OFFICIAL RULES OF THE NATIONAL SHUFFLEBOARD ASSOCIATION, INC. Revised 1997 Updated January 2005
 
PLEASE ENSURE THERE ARE BEADS ON THE COURT PRIOR TO BEGINNING PLAY-USE SHAKER
DO NOT WALK ON PLAYING SURFACE
 
The object of the game is to propel discs by means of a cue onto scoring diagram at opposite end of court to score, or to prevent opponent from scoring, or both.
 
Color Selection:
Player or team with lowest team number will play the first game with white discs, then change color and play the second game with blue discs.  The color for game three is determined by a coin flip. The winner selects their color for game 3.
 
Starting Play
Disks are placed within the 10 off area on each side of the court and are played from that area. Disks may be moved from this area back and forth to check slide, but back in the area prior to shooting.  Disks may be shot from any spot within the own team’s 10 off area.
 
White starts each game.  White is always on the right side of the court. Disks are shot alternating colors. If blue starts in error, this must be corrected (shooting side played completely over) before players on the shooting side complete their turns.
 
At the end of each game, the players on each end switch to the other end of the court.
 
Playing
The players foot must not touch the base line (line just below the 10 off). A disk is played once it leaves the player’s cue. The disk must touch or cross the opposite side dead line (the line in front of the opposite side triangle).  If the disk does not cross or touch the dead line, it is removed from the court.  Player must wait for previous disk to stop moving before shooting.
 
A disk is considered dead after it crosses the end line past the -10-back line.  If a disk rebounds back onto the court and strikes a disk still in play, the side shooting the disks plays all disks over with no score taken from the previously shot disks.
 
If a disk from an adjacent court strikes a live disk (one in play) both players on the side shooting play their round over with no score taken from the previously shot disks.
 
A disk that leaves the court (side or past the end line) should be removed from the court.
 
Scoring
After all disks have been shot, points are awarded for each disk within and not touching the white lines.  The white separation line in the 10 off is not included as a line for scoring purposes.  Determination of line contact is done viewing straight down the side of the disk.  Determination of line contact shall be as mutually agreed upon by the teams assessing the scoring on that end. A disk resting on top of another disk shall be counted the same way.
 
Winning
The first side to reach 50 points is the winner.  There is no requirement to win by 2 as in some other sports, so whichever team goes over 50 first wins and if both teams go over 50 during the same round the team with the highest score wins.
 
If a tie occurs at game point (50) or over, play continues with both ends of the court shooting again and the winner of this full round is the winner of the game.  If still tied, another full round (both sides shooting) is played until there is a winner.
 
The winning team marks the score sheet with a 1 under their team and 0 for the other team.
 
Key Elements of Play
 
 
 
Organization
 
Group Captain
 
There will be a Captain for each group whose duties include:
 
- Ensuring the courts are properly dressed with beads prior to starting play
- Bringing the score sheet for that day
- Ensuring all matches are scored (scores are not needed, only 1 for win, 0 for loss)
- Providing the results to the league coordinator for entry into the master scoring sheets

Forfeits
 
If a team does not show up for a scheduled match and has not contacted the opposing team, the match will be forfeited with the other team getting 3 wins.  A forfeit will be declared 10 minutes after the match scheduled start time if a team does not show up.
 
Substitutes, Reschedule
 
If a team or team member cannot play as scheduled, it is up to the team or team member that cannot play as scheduled to either arrange for a substitute or to contact the opposing team to reschedule to a time that works for both teams.  Make up matches can be played on any day or any time, but must be completed no later than the last of day the season play which this year is March 6.  The group schedules will be updated weekly and if a match needs to be rescheduled, the pairing will be highlighted in yellow with the team responsible for the rescheduling also highlighted.  If you plan to reschedule, please notify your group captain as a courtesy. Upon completing your match, please notify your group Captain of the results.
 
Weather-Outs
 
In the event of inclement weather that does not allow play as scheduled, the teams scheduled to play should contact each other to reschedule to a time that works for both teams.  The pairings will be highlighted in yellow on the weekly schedule update.   Make up matches can be played on any day or any time, but must be completed no later than the last of day the season play which this year is March 7. Upon completing your match, please notify your group team Captain of the results.  In the case of a total week rain out, the entire schedule may be pushed back a week.
 
Playoffs
 
The top 2 teams from each group will be entered into a 4 team play off to decide the league champion.  It will be a single elimination tournament to be held the week following complete of regular season match play. The top team in each group will play the second-place team in the other group and the winners will play for the championship.

Table Games

 
This activity is focused on fun, easy social table games.  This is a great opportunity to learn a new game and meet new friends.  Bring a snack on Thursdays for happy hour or a dessert on Sundays evenings to share with your table, 4 quarters and a few dollar bills (just in case) and BYO beverage.  If you have a favorite game bring it.  Games will be determined by how many show up, and what games everyone brings.  Possible games:  Farkle, Mexican Train, Screw Your Neighbor, Pegs and Jokers, Rummikub, Spades, Hearts, 5 Crowns, Phase 10.

Tennis

 
Did you know that 87 million people play tennis in the world and 21 million play tennis in the United States.  Of the 21 million nearly 10 million play tennis more than 10 times per year.  Tennis has been experiencing a resurgence since 2010. In fact, last year saw the highest tennis racquet sales in well over a decade.  The reason for tennis’s longevity and growth is the fact that it is a lifetime sport that can be played and enjoyed by people of any age and of every ability.

If you are you a new resident to the resort and have always wanted to pick up the game of tennis … or you an experienced tennis player who wants to practice and to play.  You are in luck.  The resort has 2 tennis courts, a ball machine, and a practice wall to help you improve your skill or just stay sharp.  There are also several other players in the resort who like to play several times per week.

In summary, if you are looking for a way to get exercise, meet other resort residents, and to have fun then join us at the tennis courts where players of all skill levels are welcome.  We hope to make our residents better tennis players while enjoying the outdoors playing the great game of tennis.

Tennis Basic Rules
 
Object of the Game
The game of tennis played on a rectangular court with a net running across the center.  The aim is to hit the ball over the net landing the ball within the margins of the court and in a way that results in your opponent being unable to return the ball. You win a point every time your opponent is unable to return the ball within the court.
 
Players & Equipment
A tennis match can be played by either one player on each side – a singles match – or two players on each side – a doubles match.  The rectangular shaped court has a base line (at the back), service areas (two spaces just over the net in which a successful serve must land in) and two tram lines down either side.  A singles match will mean you use the inner side tram line and a doubles match will mean you use the outer tram line.
All that is required in terms of equipment is a stringed racket for each player and a tennis ball.
 
Scoring
You need to score four points to win a game of tennis.  The points are known as 15 (1 point), 30 (two points), 40 (three points) and the fourth would result in the winning point and the end of that game.  If the scores went to 40-40 this would be known as deuce.  When a game reaches deuce the player must then win by two clear points.
 
Winning the Game
To win the game you must win a certain amount of sets (best of three for women’s matches and best of 5 sets for men’s matches).  Winning a set is simply the first player to reach 6 games but have to be clear by at least 2 games. If your opponent wins 5 games you must win the set 7-5.  If the set goes to 6-6 then a tie break is played and it’s simply the first player to 7 points.
 
Rules of Tennis
  • The game starts with a coin toss to determine which player must serve first and which side they want to serve from.
  • The server must then serve each point from alternative sides on the base line.  At no point must the server’s feet move in front of the baseline on the court prior to hitting their serve.
  • If the server fails to get their first serve in they may take advantage of a second serve.  If they again fail to get their second serve in then a double fault will be called and the point lost.
  • If the server clips the net but the ball goes in the service area still then let is called and they get to take that serve again without penalty.  If the ball hits the net and fails to go in the service area then out is called and they lose that serve.
  • The receiver may stand where they wish upon receipt of the serve. If the ball is struck without the serve bouncing then the server will receive the point.
  • Once a serve has been made the amount of shots between the players can be unlimited.  The point is won by hitting the ball so the opponent fails to return it in the scoring areas.
  • Points are awarded in scores of 15, 30 and 40. 15 represent 1 point, 30 = 2 and 40 = 3. You need 4 points to win a game. If a game lands on 40-40 it’s known as deuce.  From deuce a player needs to win 2 consecutive points to win the game.  After winning one point from deuce they player is on advantage.  If the player wins the next point they win the game, if they lose it goes back to deuce.
  • To win the set a player must win 6 games by 2 or more.  The opening sets will go to a tie break if its ends up 6-6 where players play first to 7 points.  The final set will not have a tie break and requires players to win by two games with no limits.
  • If a player touches the net, distracts his opponent or impedes in anyway then they automatically lose the point.
  • The ball can hit any part of the line for the point to be called in, outside the line and the ball is out.
  • The balls in a tennis match are changed for new balls every 6 games
  • A player loses a point if they fail to return the ball in either the correct areas on the court, hits the net and doesn’t go into opponent’s area or fails to return the ball before it bounces twice in their half.
 

Trivia Night

 
Test your knowledge of general trivia against fellow owners.  The evening will pit teams of eight against one another for the right to be crowned trivia champions.  The evening’s session will consist of four rounds of questions. For question 1-4 teams can bid 2,4,6, or 8 points.  If they get it correct they get the points. If they get it wrong the points do not count against them they just cant use the point value again. Questions 5, 10, 15, and 20 are bonus questions and are scored differently.  The team with the greatest point total will have bragging rights for a two-week period.  Come out with your own team or we will help form teams once you arrive.  This will be a night of fun facts and relaxed entertainment.  Be prepared to leave a little smarter! 
 
There will be sponsors for every trivia session which means an open bar for Trivia participants!!

Water Aerobics

 
 
Water aerobics is the participation in aerobic exercise while being immersed in water.  It focuses on aerobic endurance and resistance training.        Over 10 million people participate annually in water aerobics in the United States.  It is popular because it is a low-impact workout. 
 
The resort’s water aerobics sessions are an hour in length and are led by a certified instructor.  The sessions are accompanied by lively music to keep you motivated.  Each class includes a warm-up, cardio and strength-training exercises, and a cool down.  
 
If you are uncertain what it is all about, come down and watch a session.  I think you will quickly see what the benefits of low-impact exercise can provide for you and how much fun you will have doing it!  Plus, you will see that it is a great way to meet people in the resort.
