What we're about

Dynamic Professionals (Age 50 + We are a SINGLES group)

**Please have a photo on your profile to be accepted as a Dynamic Professional member** I request this for the safety and security of all of our members. If, for some reason you don't feel comfortable posting a photo, email me and I'll provide my phone number to speak to you personally prior to acceptance with our group.

Membership fees - No membership fees at this time.

Removal from group - As the Organizer, it is my sole discretion to remove a member from the group. If I don't feel the member is a "fit", if a member doesn't get along with others, if a member causes undo hostility, if more than one complaint has been voiced about a specific member, just to name a few.

As you can see from our wide variety of past meetups - we have events and adventures for everyone. Favorite places to visit for daytrips and weekend trips, favorite local restaurants-both new and old, group dinners and more intimate dinners, dancing, sporting events, mystery theatres, boat trips, wine tastings, museums, historical sites, movies, theatre, cabarets, musical events (from new age to classical), visits to parks, hiking, skating, go carting, zip lining, paint ball, and the list keeps going. Many more activities to be had in the warmer months. Be sure to hit SEE ALL as our events and trips go out more then 12 months.

Check out past events & adventures to wet your appetite and show you what a wonderful group this is. Read the reviews and comments and don't forget to check the photo's from previous events.
RSVPs go fast within this group.

Members should be 50+ years of age (or close to it) and SINGLE, but those numbers aren't set in stone, had to start and end somewhere. Once you're a member, you WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF THIS GROUP and are welcome at any event even if you become a "couple" with someone in or outside the group.

You must be an individual that cares about their appearance, has a zest for life, has an ACTIVE and healthy lifestyle and the means to join us for some of our events. Those that enjoy getting together with and being respectful of others. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated in anyway. Inappropriate comments and/or other harassment of any member will be grounds for removal from our group.
At times you will be asked to participate in bringing a dish or your beverage of choice. Posts will always give plenty of info and/or suggestions as to the nature of our event and what is needed.

Please share your questions or comments. If anyone has an idea, please share with me and I’ll post and put it out there to see if there’s any interest.

Let your friends know about Dynamic Professionals 50 +, we hope to make this a very popular meet up with a new concept and twists on old concepts. Thanks for your interest!

Warm regards,
Ellen Foster, Organizer

Pickleball ~ 6 NEW COURTS ~ Experienced Players (No coaches til Spring '23)

Weekly PICKLEBALL for Experienced Players. Sorry, we will not have any lessons or coaches until Spring 2023. I have the event set up weekly through December 29th. Please RSVP weekly and take yourself off if you can't make it. This way others will know how many players will be on the courts each Thursday. Your respect on this matter will be appreciated by all.

WEATHER ~ Games will be based on weather and since I'm in Florida and don't look at the weather in CT daily, use your good judgement on whether or not to come out and play. Dress for the season!!

There are indoor courts but most will be full to the brink with Pickleball Teams.

We've had a great turnout throughout the summer with those that were Experienced and those that are now Experienced after several great sessions with Diane and James.

Diane will be back next season beginning Spring 2023 when the weather warms up. Stay tuned.

EXPERIENCED - This means you've been playing with the experienced players for more then 5 lessons or you were an Experienced player from the first event.

We will have regular WEEKLY games at Panthorn Park on Thursday's 6 p.m.

PRIVATE LESSONS with Diane - Contact Diane Alicea directly. [masked][masked] They charge $30 PP/Per Hour. If you want to get two (2) members together, they will do a lesson for both of you for $30 Per Hour/$15 Per Hour PP

Be sure you have the proper footwear, a pickleball paddle, sunscreen, hat, water and comfortable clothing. We'll provide the balls.

Call me with any questions. [masked]

Why is pickleball so addictive?
Pickleball is fun, which makes a pickleball addiction real for some people. Overdoing it can lead to disastrous results, and no one wants to spend time away from the courts. Significant changes come from small habits. If you're going to play better, pick one of these points, and make one small change starting TODAY!

What is pickle ball and how is it played?
Pickleball is a simple paddle game played with a baseball-sized wiffleball over a tennis-type net on a Badminton-sized court. Only the serving team can score points. Points are scored by legally serving a ball that is not returned by the opponent or by winning the rally.
