Kentucky Derby Wednesday Night at the Courts

The spirit of the upcoming Kentucky Derby tomorrow, May 1, was celebrated with a Derby theme suggested by member Carol Bowe at Donny’s ABCD Social on Wednesday. With lots of laughs 60 members played pickleball, admired decorated hats, and drank mint juleps (thanks to Carol) and margaritas. Prizes were also presented for the best decorated hats (3pm: Deb Myers, Marilyn Wellons; 5pm: Bev Crane, Marty Bachtler). Another fun night! Check out the pictures on the website at www.tppickleballclub.org.
