Pickleball Fix

by Bev Crane

Forty-five (45) ladies will be heading out on Monday for the Lucy Kitcher Clinic in Port St. Lucie, FL and return on Friday. The event held at a Club Med resort includes lots of pickleball including morning instruction each day and access to all their amenities. Should be a great learning experience, as well as fun with our pickleball colleagues. Upon our return we’ll be ready to show off our newly honed pickleball skills. Watch out everyone!

NOTE--No Friday Fix will be sent out next Friday, Feb 4.

Please help!

--Pickleballs. It’s been very cold and pickleballs tend to crack more easily. One morning this week 7 balls cracked between 9-11am! When you finish playing, please put the balls in the holders on each court to keep them out of direct cold.

--Parking. With 60+ participating in Cookouts and Wed events, parking facilities are continuing to be taxed. Cars park in the parking lot and golf carts on the Wellness Center side of the Pavilion and in the grass area to the north of the Courts. Carpool when possible.

--Sign-up Sheet. Remove your name from a Sign-up sheet if you cannot play that event so others can sign-up and the waitlist is activated.

--Clean up. Remove trash, empty bottles and check the site to make sure you have all of your possessions with you so they don’t end up in the lost/found or trash!

--Lost & Found. Forgetful? If you forget something, check the lost/found boxes at the courts. The boxes are constantly filling up with items left behind.

We are all at the courts to have a good time playing pickleball. Be courteous and kind and have fun pickling.
