Potential members are invited to visit any of the games and try them out for two weeks before joining the club. Dues are $10 per calendar year. The club has 2 to 4 potlucks per year where members join together to discuss the business of the club and socialize. Our club also participates in the Senior Games.
Our club is inclusive and new members are generally welcome to learn through play. The exception is Rules Wallyball where a certain level of skill lends itself to enjoyment of the game.
