Edgewater Club is described
as one of the most active clubs in the area. All activities are all
managed by volunteers. Our great variety of activities provides many
opportunities to meet your fellow members and make new friends. Whatever
your favorite pastimes or hobbies may be you will most likely be able to
find a group with similar interests. If you have a talent or interest not
currently available, you might be the one to start something new. You will
be encouraged to try new activities and you will have opportunities
to get involved. Many organized events occur primarily during the Fall
through Spring season. Others continue throughout the year.
Tuesday morning coffee provides
members with an opportunity to get the latest news about events and also
to purchase tickets for events. Ticket sales begin at 7:00am. Meeting
starts at 8:00am
Breakfast twice a month and a
dinner once a month put on by our very capable Men's Club. They also
provide lunches for a number of other activities that take place
throughout the year.

on themes and provide door prizes. It's been a sell-out crowd this year.
Be sure to bring your dancing shoes. This committee also judges the
Holiday Lights Contest and decorates the club for the holidays. Volunteers
to host the dances are always welcome.
Organized trips include the
dinner show at the Palm Theater in Fort Myers, an Annual Cruise, and day
trips to a number of different events.
Pool Parties, a Fashion Show
/Luncheon, and a 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration are some
of the yearly events that members enjoy thanks to the wonderful work of

is played year round every Tuesday. Early bird play starts at 3:30 and
evening play begins at 6:00pm.This is a favorite of many club members as
well as other community people. Kitchen volunteers serve up great
hot dogs and the coffee and/or tea is free. Whether you want to play or
volunteer to work this is the place for you on Tuesdays.
Horseshoes: This activity is played on Tuesday and Thursday morning. It is a very
popular activity with more men playing this year than ever before. They
also entered the Senior Games this year and did very well. Stop by one of
the mornings and get involved. You will have a great time.
This weekly activity uses the local Bowling Lane. There are two leagues,
one playing on Wednesday mornings and the other on
afternoons. Teams are set up based on a handicap system by Louise and
Cedric LeBlanc. Seniors of all ages are welcome. The organized season goes
from fall through spring. Banquets are held at the end of the season and
trophies and prizes are awarded. Lots of fun and fellowship is guaranteed.
New members are always welcome. If you cannot commit for the season you
may want to be on the substitute list.
Numerous courses are available in the area for groups as well as
individuals. There are several groups of club members who play
Bocce Ball: Club members sign up

is a new activity played on the tennis court
and is attracting a
lot of new players. Played with paddles and a wiffle ball, it uses only a
small section of the court and like tennis can be played by 2 or 4
The Edgewater Club has purchased paddles and balls for the members
to use and are stored in the tennis shed. This game is a combination of
badminton and ping pong. Watch the newsletter for dates and times
that instruction and games will start in November. In the meantime,
for members who are here over the summer, you might like to give the game
Tennis:The tennis group is comprised of Club members who enjoy the sport of tennis. They
welcome new members, beginners to pros,
and urge you to consider taking part in this stimulating aerobic activity.
When the season starts in the early fall you will find the men on the
courts at 8 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, followed by the
ladies at 10 a.m. Both the men (on Tuesday) and ladies (on Monday) have "inter-park
traveling teams" that
afford the opportunity to meet tennis players from other parks and clubs;
and both groups host the other clubs at our courts. Saturday mornings are
unique in that play starts at 8 a.m. for whoever shows up (men and
women). As the season progresses the men have a competitive process
called "the ladder", whereby players who sign up
are provided the opportunity to play for points against each other. Early
January produces a "mixed challenge", with games played at 1 p.m., 2 p.m.
& 3 p.m. on Friday afternoons. This popular spectacle produces
considerable fans, and is yet another opportunity to socialize (players
and fans). On occasion, the players from all events, their spouses and
friends, have been known to assemble on the clubhouse patio following the
last game on Friday afternoon for an informal social evening (pot-luck
goodies and bring your own drinks). An "end of the year pot-luck dinner"
in late March has proved successful and provides the organizers of the
various events the opportunity to update the membership on the year's
activities. Through the auspices of several very talented club members
we are able to provide great guidance and advice for new members who may
not, have played tennis previously. Do consider joining us; the cost is
minimal, the fun immeasurable, the laughs constant, and the health
benefits for yourself a bonus. The Tennis group invite and welcome all
former players, their spouses and friends, to continue their involvement
by participating in the various social opportunities for the group. Think
"F" for friends and fun, and remember, "keep your eye on the ball".
Each Monday at 9:00 am all interested persons are invited to play.
(Previous experience is not needed)
Each person pays one dollar. A minimum of 12 players (3 courts) is
needed. At about 10 minutes before the hour we draw
black and yellow paper discs for court positions and partners.
All players play 3 rounds, rotating matches according to the pairs'
Upon completion of play each Monday, all money collected is paid to 1st,
2nd, and 3rd place teams.
