Tai Chi and Pickleball at White Bluff

If they are not golfing, boating, fishing, hunting, horseback riding or bicycling, White Bluff residents are engaged in many activities here on the Resort, including Pickleball and Tai Chi.

Pickleball.

A group got started in mid-2018 and meets about twice a week as a group, but individuals can play more often. One of the tennis courts has been outfitted for Pickleball and the participants gladly volunteered do the work to get it ready for play. Equipment is available to use at the White Bluff court or people can bring their own.

The sport is the fastest-growing in the U.S., with more than 2.8 million players and a 12% increase in the past year, according to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association. Here is a link to information about the sport of Pickleball.

Tai Chi.

A new 2019 group in White Bluff is Tai Chi instruction. Meets every Sunday at 1 pm in the Lone Star Room. A professional Tai Chi instructor conducts the class — which averages 12 to 20 (depending on participant schedules). Each class is $10/person for an hour of instruction. Tai Chi is a gentle form of exercise that is appropriate for any age and most any physical condition. It promotes balance, mental concentration, muscle strengthening and general flexibility. Besides stretching and gentle movements, Tai Chi incorporates meditation and controlled breathing. Here is a link to the benefits of Tai Chi and details of how Tai Chi differs from other forms of exercise.
