Pickleball Fix

by Bev Crane

After a couple of hectic pickleball weeks members can just relax and play pickleball at their leisure with the usual events available for sign-up on the Den, including plenty of Next Paddle Up, Open Play, and regular Men’s (Tues) and Ladies’ (Thurs) Days at 1pm. Donny’s Wed Nite Pickleball is still filling up quickly so sign up on Den but take yourself out if you can’t play so others can join.

TPPC Board

Please welcome the new TPPC BOD who are getting right down to work adjusting to their new roles as Club officers. They look forward to your help to volunteer for the many responsibilities that are necessary to keep the Club running smoothly. Watch for a list of Committees that will be looking for volunteers! The next open Board meeting is Mon, Mar 28 at 3pm at the Pavilion.

Prior to play at Donny’s Wed. Nite ABCD event, we were all happy to welcome Deb Howard back to the Courts. Her brief eloquent comments about her husband Tom Howard and his recent passing touched everyone.

Donny’s Wed Night Pickleball

Donny planned a special treat this past Wed. night after pickleball play. Both sessions 3-5pm and 5-7pm had a large crowd signed up. It was fun to play some pickleball and afterwards relax and have a margarita/beer along with beer brats cooked by Dale Nevermann. Thanks, Dale! Donny and Barb Rooks always come up with a good idea! Join the fun!
