IronOaks Ladies Billiards Club: I love to shoot pool, but I haven’t played in years

Michelle Behanna

It’s 2017 and there is no time like the present to think about adding a new activity to your weekly schedule. Starting at approximately 9:15 a.m. the Ladies Billiards’ Club, members can be observed practicing their pool skills and socializing at the Oakwood Clubhouse. Our regular play begins at 9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Did you know that our club dates back 20 years or more? We are an organized club, comprised of ladies of all ages who reside in IronOaks.

In case you haven’t heard, the Billiards Room located at the Oakwood Clubhouse has been remodeled. The club members are excited to have new carpeting and paint to go with the equipment. The club members are having to learn to play on pool tables that are larger, but we welcome a little challenge.

Last October, two club members participated in the Activities Open House at Oakwood. Due to the remodeling, we were delayed in contacting ladies who expressed an interest in our club. This past week, I’ve started phoning those who provided us with their name and telephone number. If you attended the Activities Open House, read about our club in the Sun Lakes Splash or heard about our club through a friend and have played pool in the past, I encourage you to reach out and give the IronOaks Ladies’ Billiards Club a try.

You do not need to RSVP to join us on a given Tuesday morning. Simply show up a few minutes before 9:30 a.m., select a pool stick from the rack, meet the club members and play pool. Contact Michelle Behanna at 480-357-4231 for more information.
