Rio Bend Is The Place To Play

Rio Bend is the place to come and play!

The winter weather is warm and pleasant in the Imperial Valley, and Rio Bend has an abundance of outdoor activities to enjoy. They are all great fun and there are plenty of great friends to enjoy them with!  Here are some sports to engage in:

A relatively new hobby, pickleball, is now the fastest growing sport in the U.S. Played on a tennis-style court with racquets that resemble large ping pong paddles and a ball similar to a small wiffle ball, it is much like playing tennis.

Rio Bend has four well maintained pickleball courts for both single and double play.  Join other pickleball players on the courts daily for fun and competition. Our courts are lighted for evening play also.

While less active than pickleball, the lawn bowling game of bocce requires tenacity, good hand-eye coordination and a great deal of strategy. Our two courts are surfaced with attractive synthetic turf that allows great playability and provides an even, consistent playing field.  Everyone is invited to participate in the fun.

What’s a resort without shuffleboard?  Rio Bend has turned this relaxing pastime into an art form with four beautifully maintained outdoor shuffle board courts adjacent to our pool and spa. Relax and enjoy our poly-diamond refinished courts with a glossy smooth, perfectly level surface.

There is also an indoor shuffleboard table in the Game Room.

Golfing GreenHailed as “one of the best golf courses in California” by the Souther California Golf Association, Lakeview Golf Course offers women’s, men’s and mixed golf leagues.

For those who remember Plaids, the last tee time of the day will be ours two days a week. Let your friends know… this is time to practice and have fun.

Other sporting activities include ping-pong, volleyball, ladder ball, billiards and a men’s competitive softball team.  (Get those pompoms and megaphones out to cheer for our team!)After all this activity you can stop by the bar for your favorite drink or one of our refreshing daily drink specials.

Watch for our next newsletters to see a preview of our fitness activities and what’s on the menu for our snack bar and poolside bar!

PS:  Bring your friends with you and take advantage of valuable incentives for you both!
