Monthly Club Meetings:

The VBC holds a Monthly Member Business Meeting on the last Friday of every month at La Hacienda Recreation center at 5pm. Occasionally, this event date is changed due to recreation center availability or major club events. 


All club members are invited to attend the monthly meeting. NO reservation is required unless you plan to join us for dinner or a tournament. At this meeting the club president gives a Board of Directors report and and shares information about various club business, upcoming activities and other club news. These meetings also serve as the venue for annual club election of new officers which are held at the first member meeting of the year. 

Monthly Club Dinner & Fun Social Tournaments:

One week in advance members receive an email notice to sign up for this event.

In conjunction with the Monthly Member Meeting there is a Dinner & Fun Tournaments to give the membership an opportunity to socialize and meet other club members. Dinner immediately follows the Member Meeting. 


ALL members are encouraged to join us for dinner and or play in the tournaments regardless of skill level. Mixed Teams are created to include both men and women players of various skill levels in a series of 8 matches for prizes.


The tournaments held at 3pm and 6:30pm are meant to be fun & lighthearted and encourage fun and socialization over competitiveness. It can also be a learning experience with the more experienced players helping their lower skilled teammates with shots during matches


The fee to participate in this event is $7 per person. This helps cover the cost of dinner and tournament prize payouts. Remaining expenses are subsidized by the club treasury.  There is a $5 fee for dinner only and a $10 fee for dinner and to play in both the afternoon and evening tournaments.  You may choose to play in one or both tournaments.

Members  must make reservations to participate no later than the Wednesday before an upcoming event so that we can plan our food and the tournament rosters. Contact Wendy at (352) 250-5295 or to reserve a spot
