Buckets have been placed around the courts for Broken Balls. Please DO NOT crush them. They will be used for a project at the Pickleball Pavilion.

Wondering what those Pink Ribbons on the nets are for?

Just move it to the middle of the net to alert your RR Captain that you have finished your game, but you are still playing for fun until everyone else finishes their games.

ASSESSMENTS

Hi Everyone. It's time to start thinking about Palm Creek and pickleball.

Assessments will be a little different this year. There will be a skills test and a four-person round robin. The assessments will be much more objective, and I am hoping there won't be a long waiting list.

I am working with John Winston and Wild Apricot on the sign-up process. I am asking everyone to wait until you are in the park to sign up for assessments.

To make this work we will need a lot of volunteers, so we don't have a long waiting list. As I have said, evaluations will be much more objective so don't be intimidated. There will be one volunteer feeding the balls and one volunteer recording. Please - please consider volunteering.

I will be arriving mid-October. Assessments and training of volunteers will start ASAP.

Everyone practice your dinks, drop shots, serves, and return of serves.

More information to follow.

Thanks, and see you soon.
