March Pickleball Madness

All new for March 2016.  Our default playing format for the month of March at Optimist Park and Fern Bell will be Playing Level Court Designation.  At each location one court will be designated for Intermediate and Developing Players, one court for Semi-Competitive Players, and one court for Competitive Players.  Adjustments may be made based on attendance to balance playing time.

Remember… just like Almond Joy and Mounds… some days you feel like a pro, some days you don’t, so you decide which level is best suited for you.

Please let me know how you think this is working out during the month so we can make a decision for the future.

Evenings beginning March 1st at Fern Bell.  Every Tuesday and Thursday come join us for evening play at Fern Bell from 6:00 to 8:30 pm.  At long last cabin fever ends for those who have not been able to take advantage of the winter (basketball restricted) daytime only hours.

A bonus day.  On a trial basis, beginning March 2nd, we will be playing at Fern Bell every Wednesday from 10:00 to 11:45 am.  Courts will be designated for New and Developing Players through Semi-Competitive Players.  (Note: Competitive Players are encouraged to join the group at Optimist Park.)

Reminders.  At Max Luther on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am to Noon we continue to work with New and Developing Players and have two courts for Intermediate and Semi-Competitive Players.

And more.  Recreational play at all levels continues at Brahan Spring four days a week and one day a week at the Senior Center.  We also hold a New and Developing Player Clinic for those 60 and above at the Senior Center.

Outreach… The Huntsville Pickleball Club is also currently:  Providing instruction for over 30 players through adult programs at Learning Quest and OLLI.  Supporting new Pickleball start-ups in other parts of Alabama.  Assisting with Pickleball in our schools.

How can you help?  You are, by being a member of the Huntsville Pickleball Club.

Thank you,
