Tis The Season for Giving

Pickleball remains committed to giving back to our community.  This year during our Holiday Tournament we collected player donations for the Salvation Army Toy Drive, Larry’s Shoe Angels and approximately 40 pounds of non-perishable items for the Food Bank.  At our recent Board meeting we unanimously approved $400 to each of these charities which also includes any BYOB money collected in excess of the cost of our liability insurance.  Happy New Year everyone!

Upcoming January Clinics

Four clinics are planned for January.  The Drop Shot clinic will cover why and how to do drop shots along with practice tips.  The Doubles Strategy clinic will teach you more about playing successfully with your partner presenting how to both be aware and in sync.  Soft shots are key to good play, but knowing when and how to attack can help win games, learn more at the Advanced Attack clinic.  An overview of all the strokes and where to be on the court during play will be covered in Strokes & Court Sense clinic.  

All clinics will be held on Wednesdays from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm on Courts 9 & 10. Sign-up one week prior to each session at the bulletin board near Court 6.  Wear court shoes, bring your paddle and $1.00 (helps pay for all the balls we use!).
