Welcome! This is a great group of fun-loving men and women, mostly singles, age 55+. Couples are also welcome, but couples must sign up individually as members.
We are NOT a group for intermediate or higher level players. This group was specifically formed to separate ourselves away from higher skilled players, overly competitive people, and younger people with faster reflexes. If you enjoy a good game for fun and exercise, but not interested in slamming the ball at every chance, we are for you. If you play better than a beginner, enjoy a little competition, but are not intermediate (or all about winning), consider yourself an "Advanced Beginner"!
NEITHER are we a group for new beginners. If you have never played before and don't know the rules, you should not come to an event and expect us to teach you. You should practice with friends or perhaps take a lesson or two to learn the basics before coming to play with us.
We play for fun and friendship. Typical players are definitely not at the intermediate level, but know the game basics. If you find yourself playing much better than everyone, please "take it down" and play at the group level.
We are a small group, so we collect a small fee in the way of annual dues, to help cover the Meetup group charges. You can pay me (David Thor) $5 cash when you see me at an event. (If you want to pay through Meetup, it's $6, because Meetup needs to take its $1 cut off the top.) Thank you!
