SCW fitness centers, indoor pools, walking track, other indoor venues will be closed effective Tuesday Consistent with Gov. Doug Ducey’s Executive Order announced Monday, the Recreation Centers of Sun City West will be closing its fitness centers, massage and personal training services, along with other indoor recreation venues as of Tuesday, June 30.

Racquetball courts, table tennis room and other indoor sports – including the indoor walking track and indoor pool at Palm Ridge – also will be closed beginning Tuesday. The closures remain in effect until at least July 27, per the order.

Bowling will remain open as social distancing already has been put in place there, with every other lane closed, masks required, and groups limited to no more than three people per lane. Memo’s Restaurant will remain open as appropriate spacing is in order. Chartered clubs that have opened will remain open, with clubs required to keep appropriate social distancing and masks in place. As of now, participation in these clubs has fallen well below that number and that trend is expected to continue with members choosing to stay home.

The Rec Centers encourages all residents to stay home if they are in a high-risk category – which includes those 65 and older and those with pre-existing conditions.

The R.H. Johnson and Palm Ridge outdoor pools will remain open. Signage will be posted reminding people not to congregate in groups of 10 or more. Chairs already have been separated to provide 6-foot distancing, and members are reminded not to move these chairs.

As was previously announced, masks are required in all indoor spaces, including Member Services, the Library, Village Store and pro shops.

Golf courses remain open with social distancing and other precautions already in place. Crooked Putter at Grandview will remain open with its existing social distancing measures in place.
