Pickleball Fix

by Mel Kohlberg


There will be no “Get Past Four” Clinic on Wednesday, Nov 22nd due to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Our Canadian friends already had their Thanksgiving last month. Now it’s our turn.

Please be mindful, you MUST sign-up in the DEN to participate in the skill-level NPUs daily from 9-11am, on courts 1-11. Limited to the first 24 who register. If you are wait-listed, you are not playing unless some of the 24 registered players cancels out, or in the event you are invited in to play. You can only sign-up for one event in any time slot. No doubling up. The 9-11am time slot is “sacred”. Only NPUs, no training, practice, reserving courts, etc. Please respect the rules. They’re there for you.

Briefly, if you are not getting our weekly/monthly articles … the TPPC Fix, TPCA Timber Times, or TPCA monthly Newsletter, let someone know. Not just anybody, but a member of the Board or other management-level person. You need to be receiving our communications, and you’ll be happy you do.

Guest policy is in effect. No guests are allowed during the 9-11am NPU time slot. No guests are allowed at Club events – Mens and Ladies Days, ABCD Round Robin, Clinics, Lessons. Bring a guest along to watch, and maybe they get to play if not all openings are filled.


The first tournament of the year is the Turkey Trot, this Friday and Saturday, November 17th and 18th. This is a fun tournament for all levels of play. Teams are set, but if you can help with registration, court monitor or food sales, please contact our very own coordinator, dianebeaudoin21@gmail.com. HOT DOG SALES BOTH DAYS FROM 11am to 2pm


We proudly present the annual New Year’s Eve Party on Sunday, December 31, 2023, at the PARC Pavilion, from 6-9pm. Terrific food buffet plus extras. BYOB. Music and activities throughout the night. Best Hat Contest and door prizes. This event is SOLD OUT.


Around the courts, there is a limited number of parking spaces lined for automobiles. Please do not park your golf cart in those spaces. There’s plenty of golf cart-designated parking available for you.


Next cookout is Saturday, December 2, 5:30-9pm. The main dish will be Sloppy Joes, and not Tacos, as originally planned. Sign-up on the DEN, bring $5 for your meal, BYOB, bring a dish to pass for 6-8 people. Please write in the Notes section what you plan to bring. We’re getting a lot of duplicates.


See the attached PDF schedule for massive changes and clarifications. Happy pickling, All y’all.
