PickleBall Fix: April 23, 2021

Sunday was an exciting day! Approximately 75 members visited the new PARC courts. Thanks to Mike Murphy, Rich Ohlenroth and Dave Bouthilette for making it happen.

Players compared the colorful new court surface to that of the Lodge Courts, the nets firmly in place, fences separating courts, well-lit courts and pathways, and pickleball paddle court signs on the door of each court created by our own members Larry Pierce and Barb Rooks.

Other comments from those who visited include: “Really state of the art, quality courts, can’t wait to play on these fantastic courts.” “FABULOUS. can’t believe it’s finally a reality.“

”Thanks to all who were instrumental in making this happen. Lucky us!”

To those who came by, thanks for coming and for sharing your comments to members who were not lucky enough to be there.
