What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
Let's meet at the Mr. Tequila on East Trail at 5:30pm to get in on the tail end of Happy Hour that ends at 6:00pm. Then we can get some pretty darn good $3 tacos.
I have this event posted with 2 other Meetup groups, so if you are attending pleeeeease only sign up with one group to make figuring out the head count a little easier.
This is an INTERMEDIATE group, and not for beginners.
When possible, we try for "three hits" aka "bump, set, hit". This makes it fun and safer for everyone.
The attendance for this event is limited to 10 people.
Please being $5 for court rental. Text or message Jamie with any questions.
Thanks for your help!

Hey Everyone -
Please Note: The Pickleball concession charges a $50/year Membership fee or a $5 Drop-In Charge to play daily from 7-10AM and like 5-8PM. ALL MEMBERSHIPS FROM LAST YEAR MUST BE RENEWED FOR 2022 AS OF 01/01/2022. You can pay at the Pro-shop or get hit up by a person coming over to the courts to collect your money. Annual Memberships are paid for in the Pro-shop. I have not tried it, but on the west side of the restrooms, there is a vending machine that takes credit cards and rents paddles for $1/Hr if you need one.
With the great turnout we had last week, let's plan on mixing up the games by changing teams on the quarter hour and/or let's organize the attendees by New Beginners, Advance Beginners and Intermediate player so the games are more fun by playing at your skill level.....
If you need or want to be in the intro class, please be on time so you do not miss the introduction to Pickle rules. Look for me, Bob H, I'll be wearing blue shoes which should make it easier to find me. We'll meet at the courts west of the racquetball courts (court #'s 51 to 59)
Please use the Meetup phone app for Pickleball updates and which court # we are at.
The Pickleball Pro Shop and Park Office will be open till 8pm so you will be able to rent a paddle. I'm not sure but I think the ProShop may allow you to keep the paddle overnight, so please ask if that is possible. If you need a paddle or have one to loan out please post a comment.
Please watch the rules video below a couple of times if you have not played Pickleball before or are still unsure of the rules (See the links below).
Here are the basics for our Beginners Pickleball Class.
6:30 PM - 6:45 PM Rules of the Game. This will help all new players understand the basics of the Pickleball, including: rules, strategy, and scoring. If you have never played before, this would be a great introduction to the game. Please post if you are new to Pickleball and want this review. Bob H usually gives the review, so look for the Dude with blue sneakers.
6:45 PM - 8:00 PM or later we'll play easy non-competitive games after warming up with the basic strokes of the game.
6:30 PM For Intermediate players will play pick up games at their level. Since we ALL were Pickleball Newbies at some point in time, we ask that our more experienced will play a game or 2 with the beginners to help them get up to speed... :)
For the people new to the Game, here's a fairly decent Youtube Video below that explains the "Kitchen" or Non-Volley Zone . There are also many other videos that explain the basics that will make more sense after you've been on the court a couple of times. If you happen to watch championship Pickleball games, which is good to do, understand that is the same difference as a "flag-football game with friends" and the NFL.... :)
We want to encourage newer players by helping them to develop their skills, while keeping the games fun and interesting enough for those with more advanced skills.
Some important reminders:
Warm up before playing as this will help to avoid painful injuries.
Bring lots of cold water....Drink plenty of water before, during, and after play....
Sunglasses, hat sunscreen....
Bring insect repellent just in case....
Hope to see you there....
Let's meetup after Pickleball so some cold "re-hydration" and "carb-loading".... :)
Sooo, here's the plan we’ll meet at the Foxboro Tavern sometime 8-ish? The Fox is less than a mile from the courts in the same location as the Publix.
WARNING: the full menu/kitchen closes at 8:30pm so get your food order in before then. After 8:30pm they are limited to wings food-wise.
Non-Pickleball Player are welcome….You just need to ask for permission to sit with the "cool-kids"… :)
Hope to see you there.
