Beardsley Recreation Center will reopen to members on Monday, Sept. 21.
As with Palm Ridge and R.H. Johnson Rec Centers, which already are open, members will be asked about COVID symptoms when they arrive at the check-in desk. Temperature checks will not be conducted at any of the facilities beginning Monday.
At Beardsley, as with the other two open facilities – the pool, fitness center, locker and shower rooms will all be open.
The in-person reservations that was put in place when R.H. Johnson and Palm Ridge initially opened, will no longer be required, now that a third center is available to spread usage. Equipment reservations will return to the usual procedure – current day reservations only, either in person or by calling the center.
Kuentz Rec Center remains closed due to construction at the site as the renovation and expansion continues there.
Chartered Clubs that have dedicated space at any of the three open facilities may expand their closing time from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (At Kuentz, only Art, Leather and Woodshop are open and affected by this change.) Those clubs that wish to enjoy the later hours must submit a CR14 form to Scheduling. The fitness clubs that meet at Palm Ridge Summit Hall will be returning with a Monday through Friday schedule. Clubs may contact Scheduling at 623-544-6032 to determine their times.
Masks continue to be required at all indoor facilities (except while swimming), and gatherings of more than 50 people are prohibited. Guests are not allowed at this time.

Is there a chance the pool hours might be expanded from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. next month?
What about card playing. We NEED to get them open SOON??
Is the Walking Track at Palm Ridge open? What hrs? Thanks
Hi Dorothy. The walking track at Palm Ridge is currently open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Please reopen indoor spa at Beardsley for residents who need it for medicinal therapeutic reasons. That is large enough to accommodate social distancing. And only requires about 15 minutes.
Can we bring in guests from outside Sun City West?
Hi Floyd. We have no immediate plans to allow guests as COVID is still an issue here and nationally. With kids going back to school, snowbirds possibly coming back, etc., we are continuing to evaluate case counts but have not made any determinations to allow guests yet.
Does this include outdoor activities at Beardsley including mini golf and play sets?
Thank you so much for all of your hard work during this stressful time.
When will the spa be opened?
I have a medical exemption against covering my face. I do not wear a mask. Will I be allowed to use the exercise table? I do not sweat EXCEPT if forced to cover my face.
Just returned to SCW-do I need a reservation to come to Johnson pool in early morning to swim?
Hi Lana. You do not need a reservation for the R.H. Johnson pool.
Why isn’t anyone answering the questions about opening the spa at Beardsley?
My adult children are arriving Monday to visit us in SCW. Are my guests allowed at the outside pools
Hi Kari. We have no immediate plans to allow guests as COVID is still an issue here and nationally. With kids going back to school, snowbirds possibly coming back, etc., we are continuing to evaluate case counts but have not made any determinations to allow guests yet.
