Welcome! This is a great group of fun-loving men and women, mostly singles, mostly age 45+. Couples are also welcome, but couples must sign up individually as members.
This group is geared toward 2.5-3.0 level players. If you are a 3.5, you are more than welcome to join and play also, as long as you are patient with players that are a lower skill level than yourself. We are NOT a group for high 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 super competitive or all about winning, consider yourself a "Lower Intermediate"!
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. There are other groups for that. You can practice with friends, or perhaps take a lesson or two to learn to play before coming to play with us. You can also contact me if you would like a private or semi-private lesson.
We play for fun and friendship. If you find yourself playing better than everyone else, please "take it down" and play at the group level.
Events will be limited during the hot summer, but a full schedule is planned for the rest of the year.
We are a small group, so we collect a small fee ($6/year) for annual dues, to help cover the Meetup group charges ($200/year) and encourage more active membership. You can pay me (David Thor) in cash when you see me at an event, or just pay directly through Meetup.
