Everyone -

Bob H. will be taking over the beginner Pickleball group through July 2019, giving me a much needed break for a little while. Thanks and have a great time!....Geoff

Here are the basics for our Thursday gatherings.

5:30 - 6:30 PM Players New to the Game
6:00 - 8:00 PM All Players

The 5:30-6:30 time period will be used to 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.

The 6:00 - 8:00 time period will be for all players, including recent beginners who understand the rules and can volley the ball.

We want to encourage newer players by helping them to develop their skills, while keeping the games interesting enough for those with more advanced skills.

Some important reminders:

Drink plenty of water before, during, and after we play....

Bring insect repellant....

Paddles can be rented at the park office (the large building on your left as you drive in) for $3 plus your driver's license. The office closes at 8PM. So if you want your license back that night, don't miss closing time.

Here's a fairly decent Youtube Video 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.


Hope to see you there....
