    Court Construction & New Club Hours

    By Dale Filbert, 06/20/2019

    Construction on the 6 new pickleball courts has begun. The tennis nets are down and surface preparation has begun. We do not have a completion date but as construction progresses we will keep you informed.

    We also have some additional big news. Because of the club's effort to fund the new courts, the Sunrise Recreation and Park District has increased the hours for club play. In addition to the current club hours in the morning 6 days each week, club hours will now include night time hours 6 days each week from 5pm to 10pm. What this means is during these club hours the club can set the court rules and in order to use the courts during club hours you must be a member of the club. Club membership is strong with 310 total members. Your loyalty to the club and support for building the new courts has been fantastic and greatly appreciated.

    Here is a summary of club hours at Rusch Park:

    Sunday thru Friday - 7AM to 12PM

    Sunday thru Friday - 5PM to 10PM
