First, a change in our schedule. Evening Pickleball at Optimist Park has been changed from Thursday to Monday. Beginning tomorrow, Monday, May 4th, we will be playing Pickleball at Optimist Park from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. All the same competition, just on a different night.
So… We are playing at two locations on Monday evening:
Recreational and Intermediate @ Max Luther 6:00 to 8:30 pm
Semi-Competitive and Competitive @ Optimist Park 5:30 to 8:30 pm
Hot of the press: Pat McInnis and Sherry Barnes took 2nd place in the recent Pickleball tournament held in Fairfield Glades, Tenn.
Our Website now has a “members only” section. We now have a secure location to share information with other members of the Huntsville Pickleball Club. This will allow members to make contact, set up games, discover who may be new to Pickleball, put a name to a face or a face to a name, etc.. Please, when you have a chance, go to http://www.pickleball-huntsville.com and enter your information to share with other members. If you have any difficulty with the input, let me know and I will help.
Celebrate with a game of Pickleball. Tomorrow is the “Official Anniversary” of Pickleball in Huntsville. On May 4, 2010 Tony Horn shared the game with six others at the Senior Center. To mark this auspicious occasion, Y Pickleball (your unofficial designated supplier of Pickleball equipment in Huntsville and Madison County) has donated five “Pickleball” t-Shirts for a fun HPC Members give-away this month. To qualify for a drawing for the first one, respond with the name of the only current active player who was on the court five years ago. We will draw from all correct responses in five days.
To qualify for the Second T-Shirt Drawing please let us know… At what level are you playing Pickleball? Novice, Recreational, Semi-Competitive, Competitive? Where do you want to be? What can we do to get you there? Are you having a great time playing recreationally and want to play with others at that level?
To qualify for the number three shirt drawing, play Pickleball five times this month. Make sure you are signed-in and you will be automatically entered.
The fine print… one win per person.
See you on the courts,
