Pickleball Fix

by Bev Crane

Your 45 pickleball Club ladies are back on the courts after a successful getaway last week learning more pickleball skills! A great time but we are glad to be back and realize how lucky we are to have such wonderful pickleball courts here in Timber Pines!

The TPPC table had a good turnout at the Feb 5 - 40th Anniversary Open House last Saturday. Thanks to Kathleen Bell’s organization and volunteers Kathi Cocchi and Marsha Lorenzen, who answered questions about the Club, the Den and explained the game to residents who wanted to learn more about pickleball and the Club.
