Sports

Please note that our Community activities are open to residents and guests.

RGE FISH CLUB

Like to fish? The purpose of the RGE Fish Club is to assist in booking charters and bringing like-minded “fisher-people” (men and women), together to enjoy the sport.  There is no fee to join. We work together to book off-shore and back country charters, rent boats, match boaters with non-boaters, or whatever it takes to have fun on the water.

We post invitations and details in the monthly RGE Social Newsletter; however, e-mail, phone, and texts are critical for rapid responses. For Fish Club events: make CHECKS PAYABLE to “Mike Flaherty” unless otherwise noted.


BILLIARDS

The Men’s Billiard group meets daily, MONDAY – FRIDAY at 2:00 PM in the Annex.

The three 5′ x 9′ pool tables in the Annex Building are pretty heavily used most weekday afternoons when four to ten play from 1:00 to 4:00 PM in season. We normally play 8-Ball and, with four or more, we play partners and usually switch partners after two games. To keep things consistent, we play by the Rule Book (Billiard Congress of America). This avoids arguments.

Play is restricted to residents and their guests. For the protection of tables, there is an age restriction of 15 or older. Pool is a game not restricted to males only; women are welcome.

Play in the evenings is permitted but remember that our electronic door locks will not allow entry after 10:00 PM.

We try to keep the tables in good repair – brushing, vacuuming, etc.


BOCCE

1Bocce meets at the courts every MONDAY and FRIDAY at the Bocce Ball Courts at 10:00 AM.

Bocce is an old world game from Italy (In France it’s called Petanque.) which has its beginnings in Ancient Rome. A large ball – a bit larger and heavier than a “softball” – is rolled a distance of about 25 to 30 feet toward a golf-size ball that had initially been thrown by a player. The purpose: to get close to the small ball.

The second player – from the other team tries to get closer or tries to hit the opponent’s ball away.


BOWLING

THE GOLDEN OLDIES (a “just for fun” non-sanctioned league) bowls every TUESDAY at 12:45 PM at Woodside Lanes on Radio Road; NOVEMBER – APRIL. We bowl for 20 weeks. We are always looking for more bowlers and those who would like to sub; even if you can’t bowl the full 20 weeks.

We are looking for anyone interested in bowling, either full time, or as a substitute, so individuals, teams (4 people) or substitutes are welcome. No worries if you can’t bowl the entire season.

Come check-us-out!


PICKLEBALL

Never heard of pickleball? It is the fastest growing game in North America! Pickleball combines tennis, badminton and table tennis and is played on a badminton sized court with a net, slightly lower than a tennis net with composite paddles and balls. Two pickleball courts can be set up on one tennis court. To learn more about it and watch the game played go to www.usapa.org and play the video.

 

Riviera Pickleball meets every Monday through Friday and Sunday on the Riviera Tennis Courts from October through May.

  • Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday play begin at 8:00 AM – is open play with most people having played before.
  • Tuesday, Thursday at 10:00 AM – are generally scheduled beginner clinics and coaching is available to give people an opportunity to try the game. Paddles and balls are available.

Come out and see the game and participate. There are always “coaches” there to assist beginners and we are interested in “growing our game”.

Hope to see you on the courts.
