Sport courts, which are open to all homeowners, registered guests and renters, attract many active enthusiasts. Some participate through club-sponsored programs for competitive and social play, and others come to the courts as individuals, just looking for some recreational fun.
Most facilities have specific open times and/or areas set aside for non-league use. Due to the facilities’ popularity and various league events, however, court reservations are recommended. Players who have reservations take precedence over impromptu, walk-on users. Each sport’s approved club coordinates the scheduling of that sport’s facilities, under the supervision of the Director of Community Activities. Here’s a sport-by-sport summary:
Location: Eagle’s Nest, at 3645 N. Clubhouse Drive, directly northwest of EN Clubhouse, has eight lighted, state of the art bocce courts. Sunrise Park, at 14800 Robson Circle South, at Earll Drive on Eagle’s Nest side, has four courts.
Reservation process: PebbleCreek Bocce Ball Association’s leagues play at EN courts from September to mid-May on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Wednesday and Friday mornings. At other times, homeowners and visitors may reserve bocce courts for up to 90 minutes. To reserve EN courts, write in the sign-up calendar in the EN Sports Complex building, next to the bocce courts.
