OTHER RECREATION

Post by donjulio on Fri Aug 12, 2011 2:48 pm

I can think of numerous other activities other than the ones you mentioned. Ones that are fun and provide exercise and can be played by anyone pretty much still able to move. I believe that any exercise is a must and especially as we age and making it fun is sometime the only way to get otherwise sedentary people to move. I have seen this first hand down here. We have people here who are in their 60s and older who have been behind desks for 45 years and are now retired. They show up for volleyball and sometimes only make it through 1 game and have to sit for the day. If we can get them back the first time without giving up, in 4 or 5 months we have a totally new person and they know it. Some say they feel better than they have ever felt. We have a great group of men and women who play together, party together and are like a family. Most can’t wait for the next volleyball day.

This whole topic is interesting about what recreations other than golf, boating, and swimming might be popular in CV as it is now configured.

Lol. I think shuffleboard went out with the old one story 1950s style condos in Ft Lauderdale! I haven't seen anyone do that since I was a little kid. Just kidding. Hey for real, tennis and golf are very active in the village, and it is true, the golf courses are uncrowded. No joke. That is huge benefit and one that the villagers like to keep quiet. I still say there is no reason you couldn't start a volleyball club here. I believe you would be surprised at how many would join you.

Not even shuffleboard anymore? This begs the question “What do you do there”? It sounds like “Active” has been removed from “Retirement Village”. I noticed while I was looking at various retirement villages around the U.S. that CV seems to be the only one where the golf courses are not crowded. I though that was a little strange as pretty much all the other ones required tee times electronically and a week in advance. What about tennis, swimming or any other activities, other than the trip to Wal Mart the restaurant or the drive to Missouri? I get the feeling that maybe if shuffleboard is too strenuous volleyball is definitely out. I can do fishing though.

Thanks again for your comments on starting a volleyball club. I would like to see if there is any interest after I get there, if not, oh well. I am sure I can find other things to keep me occupied although I do like most moderatly active sports and activities. I suspect I will live on the golf courses though. Where I currently live a round of golf is around $50.00 not counting the cart or caddy. You can walk if you want but a caddy is manditory. The reason for the caddy is because this is Mexico and this is providing employment, the caddy is about $7.00 U.S. The Mexican's will never believe that all gringos aren't rich.

Yes, the golf courses here are uncrowded, that's a fact, and it is not a rich man's sport here, by an means. It is very reasonable for what you get. You will love it and congrats on your upcoming move to CV!

As to volleyball, I believe Los Indios (a timeshare area in CV) has a volleyball court and is probably not used very much. I think this is where you can "take the ball and run with it" or "spike it" to get an active club started. Start with SID, go to some city meeting and talk to people, and I don't see why you couldn't start a club and get it up and running. The equipment is cheap, you can but it yourself or get the group to pitch in, and the city can find a place for it. Get the city's approval, find a Boy Scout who needs his project for Eagle, and get it done. This is all very doable. Go for it!

Also, check out this link of other clubs and start calling them to see if anybody knows of anything and to maybe steer you in the right direction.

I agree with trout that volley ball might bring urgency to having a Medical Center. lol But seriously, there are right now outdoor areas unused which could be converted. One is a basket ball court. In terms of inside volley ball, Omaha's gym would be perfect and you could start a club.

I prefer golf but have been playing volleyball for the past 4 years and really enjoy it. It is a pretty good workout but not overly so. We currently play on two sand courts and have anywhere from 12 to 35 players show up. I am 64 and fairly young for this group. We have people in their late 70's and a couple in their 80's. We all play at our ability and everyone is accepting of others limitations. We play 3 days a week and the much better players play two days a week, great workout. We do have a Red Cross a block away and treatment is free unless you don't make it. This is Mexico so even funerals are dirt cheap and we do try to time them as not to interfere with our regular volleyball days. So, how is shuffleboard?

This being a "older retirement" area volley ball may not be in the best interest of the residents since we don't have a hospital close by. (lol)

Are there any team sports played in the Village? I was just wondering on popular team activities with good participation. I really enjoy golf and am looking forward to it. Where I currently live, golf is still a rich man's sport which pretty much leaves me out. I also notice a common thread that suggests that the courses are uncrowded, sounds great to me.
