Rich Deardorff was teaching three grandchildren the game of pickleball at the Boulder Beach sports courts July 4. Garrett and Jensen Walsh of Lincoln and their cousin Quincy Keenan of Clive were fast learners. Deardorff owns a Boulder Cove Colony condo, and has a permanent residence in Grand Island, Nebraska.
Russell and Susan Johnson, joined by their children and grandchildren, visited Boulder Beach July 4 for a friendly half-court basketball competition. The Johnsons have had a home at Lake Panorama for 10 years, plus their permanent residence in Red Oak. Susan Johnson called the new sports courts a “great facility.”
P.J. and Barb Connor played tennis with their children Zach and Hope Prouty July 4. It was their first time on the new tennis court, but clearly not their first time playing tennis together. The family recently purchased a summer home at Lake Panorama, while having a permanent residence in Arkansas.
The basketball court is on the north side of the other two courts. A concrete patio between the two fenced sections will be used for two benches, a trash receptacle, and perhaps a picnic table.
This photo shows the two pickleball courts to the east, with the tennis court to the west.
Once the concrete base was complete, holes were dug around the perimeter of the courts, filled with concrete, and fence posts installed.
The first concrete was poured May 7 at the sports courts complex at Boulder Beach.
