Fountain Valley Pickleball Club Celebrates Grand Opening
Two tennis courts have been converted to pickleball courts at the Fountain Valley Sports Park!

Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. One standard size tennis court can hold four pickleball courts. Two or four players use solid paddles made of either wood or composite to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a Wiffle Ball, over the net. 

Fountain Valley Mayor Michael Vo, members of the City Council and Chairman Andrew Do’s office recognized the Fountain Valley Pickleball Club for bringing the sport to our community!

For more information on this new opportunity or to learn about pickleball, visit their website here or check out this article. You can also contact the Fountain Valley Pickleball Club directly at (949) 427-1063 or

Working Wardrobes Drive Ends This Friday
There is still time to donate to the Working Wardrobes Professional Clothing and Accessories Drive. Chairman Andrew Do and the County of Orange have partnered with Working Wardrobes in order to help ensure that everyone has the opportunity to dress for success as they enter back into the workforce. The drive has been a success so far, but there are still more people who can be impacted by your support. The drive will continue through this Friday, July 27th and you can drop off your donation at our office on the 5th floor of the Hall of Administration, 333 W Santa Ana Blvd., Santa Ana, CA 92701

Working Wardrobes helps over 5,000 clients a year re-enter the workforce and overcome difficult challenges in their lives. However, this requires a significant amount of professional attire. The programs that benefit from clothing drives like this provide men, women, young adults and veterans with workforce readiness services in an atmosphere of dignity that has the power to enhance their lives. All clothing MUST be in good condition (gently-worn), cleaned, pressed and on hangers.
