It’s much more than a slogan coined by the Lake Havasu City Convention and Visitors Bureau…for local residents, it’s a way of life. After all, the reason people vacation here, and move here, is because of the beautiful, year round weather and abundance of outdoor (and indoor) activities. Here are a few that will help make your summer a more pleasurable one!

The no-wake rule of the Bridgewater Channel makes it the perfect place to get out and paddleboard. Not only is it a great way to get into shape and strengthen your core, but it gives you a unique perspective of being out on the lake without a motorized vehicle.

Play Pickleball!

There is no age limit, the playing area is smaller than tennis, the ball is softer, the paddle is large, and the rules are simple—that’s the big draw of Pickleball! There’s a national phenomenon sweeping the country with Pickleball courts springing up almost everywhere. Havasu is no exception. Pickleball has become so popular in Lake Havasu that the city has money in its budget for pickle ball courts—the location of the courts has yet to be determined, all players need is to get a pickleball paddle to enjoy them. For now, pickleball is being played by hundreds of Havasuvians all over town on private courts, as well as an increasing number of public courts like the ones located at the Ark Center located at 2700 S. Jamaica Blvd.
One of the driving forces behind the pickleball growth in Havasu is the husband/wife team of Tim and Carol Weaver, local Ambassadors for the USA Pickleball Association. Carol attributes the growing success of the sport due to it being easy to play, “There’s less moving around because the court is smaller.” Tim notes that the first courts were located at the Aquatic Center, “We started with just a few participants at the Aquatic Center in 2011, now we have a list of over 400!”
