Pickleball Card Reader

The attendance reader at the East Center pickleball courts will be replaced with a new model on Monday, June 12. Cards older than March 20, 2017 will no longer work at this location. Please visit a customer service office at East Center, West Center (not the Member Services Center!), Las Campanas or Canoa Hills to trade in your old card for a new one.

Volunteer on a Board Committee!

The GVR Board of Directors relies on volunteer committees to pursue much of the business of the Board. Committees research issues, evaluate and prioritize requests, inform policy, make recommendations to the Board, and work with staff and members to advance goals. Committee members do NOT have to be full-time residents, but they must be GVR members.

If you’d like to get involved, please click HERE for more information or to indicate your interest. If you prefer a paper application, visit any staffed office for a hard copy (East Center, Las Campanas, West Center, Canoa Hills and Santa Rita Springs). DEADLINE: April 21.

Abrego North Pool & Spa Reopen!

After much anticipation, the newly enhanced and enlarged Abrego North (ABN) Center pool and spa opened this morning with a “Big Splash” Grand Reopening and ribbon-cutting celebration with over 200 in attendance. The opening of the pool was an especially happy event for GVR’s members, leadership, and staff as it culminated a nearly two-year process of navigating difficult waters to rectify the failed pool.

GVR Launches New Mobile App

After more than a year in development, Green Valley Recreation, Inc. (GVR) is launching a beta version of its new smart phone app for use by those with smart phones.

The new app will allow users to access locations and amenities available at GVR’s 13 centers, upcoming events and performances, lectures, trips and tours, class schedules and information on GVR’s clubs.

The app also includes an alert function, which will notify users of the closing and reopening of pools during thunder and lightning. This alert is automatically activated when you download the app.

GVR developed the app after receiving input from members about what information they would like to access from their phone or tablet. GVR’s mobile app is compatible with any android or apple device, including smart phones and tablets, and may be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play. Search for Green Valley Recreation, Inc. and look for the GVR logo.
App users are asked to share their comments and suggestions on the new app. Feedback on the app may be sent to ITDepartment@gvrec.org.
