What are Quiet Paddles and are they required?
Green Zone paddles are the only paddles approved for use on the Fountain of the Sun pickleball courts.
Yes, Quiet Paddles are required! In accordance with motion #6 from the FOSA Board of Directors meeting on December 15, 2021, ALL players will be required to use only “quiet paddles.” FOSPC has adopted the list of acceptable paddles from the Sun City Grand Pickleball Club found at: https://pball.grandpickleball.org/paddlerule.pdf. The Sun City Grand Pickleball Club maintains this approved list of “Green Zone” paddles. These paddles “fall within acceptable noise levels and are approved for use on the Sun City Grand Pickleball Courts” and in Fountain of the Sun.
How do I reserve court time?
To reserve court times on any of the three courts, players must use the Hold My Court online reservation system. This is available for Club members and all FOS residents. However, if a player plans to make recurring reservations, it is highly recommended he/she become a member of the FOSPC. There is a two week window for reservations.
