Bocce Ball

Our Bocce Ball is a version of Italian Lawn Bowling except that we play on carpeted courts.  We have our four courts located just east of the Mesa Verde Room.  The game is not strenuous and can be played by people who are quite elderly and even somewhat handicapped.  From the first week in January to the last week in March we have organized league play.  Men play on Mondays, women on Tuesdays and mixed couples play on Thursdays and Fridays.  Wednesdays are reserved for open play  Starting time is always 9:30 AM.  From April until the end of November we have open play on Monday through Friday in the evening.  Our courts are lighted for night play and the starting time is 7:00 PM.  In addition to playing the game, we are also involved with tournaments that include teams from other parks, fund-raising and other social activities.  All residents  of Sunland Village East are invited to participate in our open play and to join our club .

bowlerWithin SVE there are three bowling leagues that bowl through March and two organized open bowling groups that meet socially in the summertime.  The purpose of these leagues is to promote the sport of bowling in SVE  and advance socialization within our village.  Bowlers of all skill levels are encouraged to have fun and enjoy the sport and fellowship of bowling.

 The Superstition Senior Mixed Bowling League bowls at Mesa East Lanes on Monday at 3:30 PM for 19 weeks, October through March.  Each year 16 teams are made up randomly form the membership list.

 The  longest running leagues in the village are the SVE Mixed Bowling League and the SVE No-Tap Bowing League, both of which bowl at Brunswick Lanes for 20 weeks.  Both leagues are non-sanctioned handicap leagues.  Our goal is to have a good time while getting some good exercise.  The No-Tap league bowls on Monday at 1:30 PM.  The Mixed League bowls on Wednesday at 1:30 PM  Both leagues presently consist of 3 people per team, resulting in a faster pace.  The teams are assigned at the beginning of each season, using last year's averages, so that teams begin with nearly the same team averages.  At the end of each season there is a fantastic bowling banquet and great prizes.  This is not the usual boring bowling banquet -- you have to see it to believe it!

ChurchThe Village Chapel is a nondenominational ministry operated for and by residents of Sunland Village East.  It was started in 1990 by a group of SVE residents under the leadership of Paster Wyn Olson, a resident since 1988.  In October 2011, Wyn Olson resigned as pastor of the Village Chapel and on January 8, 2012, Richard Koerselman was called to serve as the pastor of the Village Chapel, beginning on May 1, 2012.

Our objective is to glorify the Lord, teach Biblical truth and provide a place of worship with our neighbors.  We meet for worship and fellowship in the SVE Auditorium each Sunday at 9 AM and for Bible Study in the Oakwood Room at the Palo Verde Building on Tuesdays at 7 PM from November through March. 


Our choir meets for practice each Thursday at 2:00 PM in the Mesa Verde Room and performs each Sunday under the director of Karen Bader.   The sermons are Bible centered and focused on relevant issues.  Our order of service is informal, but reverent, and our music is traditional.  A freewill offering is received each Sunday to cover our operating expenses and our donation to charities.  We contribute $10,000 to the SVEHOA each year for the use of their facilities.  Monthly  donations to Chapel charities are made during the year.

"Ringer Time"

It is getting closer to the time to throw ringers again. 

HorseshoesRight now our players are scattered from Alaska to Kansas and points in between.  Hopefully they are finding courts to practice on during the summer.  Practice we all need, and lots of it. 

Players we need also, both male and female.  If you are a thrower, or would like to be, talk to anyone at the pits or call me, Pat Ward, at 480-380-4246.

We are in a 17 team league so every Tuesday morning from November through February we are either hosting a game at our pits or are going to another park to try our luck and skill on their pits.

Houseshoe pitching is fun and good exercise.

We have a good bunch of guys.  They enjoy the game as well as the coffee and doughnuts that are available where ever we play.

All the material has been donated.  When you find something interesting, books or videos, you are welcome to take it home with you.  When you finish reading or viewing, bring it back and select another, since we operate on an honor system.

The Library is organized according to the type of reading material.  There are books considered to be fiction and also nonfiction.  There are paperbacks as well as hardbacks.  We have Westerns, books in a series, cookbooks, health, hobbies and travel books.  

We have many volunteers who keep the books shelved when books are returned.  In the back area of the library, we have shelving for magazines, a jigsaw puzzle table, and four computers.  The Computer Club updates and maintains the computers.  The SVE library has two areas where you can sit and read a book or just talk to friends.  Stop by and visit this great addition to our Village.

Neighborhood Watch

Sunland Village East is the only community in North America, to our knowledge, that is 100% organized under the Neighborhood Watch program.  As of January 1, 2003 we list 75 Block Watch groups which involves some 325 volunteers as Block Captains and Assistants.  The Neighborhood Watch program is nation wide and locally is directed by the Mesa Police Department.

Neighborhood Watch has proven to be a great crime deterrent and, in SVE, has in addition added considerably to the quality of life by way of building an esprit de corps among our residents.  If you are new to SVE, we highly recommend that you get in touch with your Block Captain who can assist you to get acquainted with your neighbors and help you to quickly become immersed in our social life.  We love to see newcomers joining our ranks and contributing toward our Village well-being.

Block Watch groups are required to have two social functions of some kind each year.  Many groups within SVE exceed this required minimum and some have get-togethers monthly and sometimes 2-4 groups meet together.  This all helps to expand our friendship base, improves our security, and enhances the pleasure of life in SVE - An Active Community at its Best.

We encourage newcomers and long term residents alike to step forward and volunteer to serve as Block Captains and/or Assistants.  An annual turn-over of leadership benefits us all.  The tasks are light and the benefits many.

Pickleball was created with one thing in mind:   FUN!  It is a game designed to be challenging, but accessible for all ages and abilities.    It is easy to learn and play, whether you are five, eighty-five or somewhere in between.            

 The game has a funny name, but don’t let that mislead you.  It is a game similar to tennis, ping pong and badminton.   It is played on a badminton-sized court with special pickleball paddles.  The ball used is similar to a whiffle ball.            

Did you know Pickeball is the fastest growing sport in the United States?  It has gained in popularity with Seniors who want to keep young ,both physically and mentally.            

Pickleball is HERE in SVE.    Membership has now reached 128 members and increasing steadily.    With our newly constructed courts we are now able to offer beginner lessons, practice sessions, social  and round-robin play.           

Yearly membership is only $20.00 !          

Meetings, combined with a social get- together are held on the second Sunday of every month.         

Pickleball may be the “best kept secret” in SVE… Let’s change that!!  Come and join us at the Pickleball Courts!  For further information contact Club President, Dan Oborn 480-357-2860.

RV Club   "The Sunrunners"

RVDoes your RV sit around collecting dust all winter?  Do you go to the storage lot and run the engine periodically just because it is good for the RV?  Why not get it out of storage and join the Sun Runners RV Club for fun in the sun?   We are really a great group and we invite any and all of you with any kind of an RV to join us.  Usually, we travel in and about Arizona, seeing what this state is all about.  But occasionally we travel further for special outings such as Monument Valley, Utah; Pahrump, Nevada; and Indio, California.  

Our outings include a lot of camaraderie, good Sun Runners chili, friendly banter, and great card games!  Everyone takes their turn at being wagonmaster, with the more experienced RV-ers pairing up with the inexperienced.  At Christmas time, we go as a group to dinner and a show in the area, but because everyone is busy with family and friends, we do not go out with the RVs in December.  We meet in the Mesa Verde Room at 3:00 PM the first Tuesday of the month from October  through April.  Come see what we are all about !!

tap dancerTap dancing is wonderful exercise for the mind and the body.  Dancers have to concentrate on each step as well as remember the sequence of the steps.  Its also a great stress reducer and good for the balance.  Along with keeping the body and mind sharp, members enjoy the friendships they have made through belonging to the group.  New members, men and women, are always welcome.

Classes for beginners and experienced dancers begin in November each year on Tuesday at 9 AM with practice on Friday mornings at 9 AM in the Sunland Village East Auditorium.
