Frogs VS Snowbirds
Hello Sun City Pickleball on this rainy, soggy day.
Our Spring Slam Tournament was a huge success! But with Jeff and Lynda Skaggs as the tournament directors, how would you expect anything less? Thanks Jeff and Lynda. Would also like to thank the many club members who volunteered! These tournaments could not happen without you. The Skaggs and myself got numerous compliments from the participants, the referees, the venders and the spectators on what a great, well-organized tournament our club hosts.
Our club was very well represented not only with participants in the tournament, but also on the medal stand. Well done. The winners have appeared with their picture and hardware on our Facebook page.
Our next membership meeting is on Monday, March 27, at 4pm at the Marinette auditorium.
If you volunteered at the Spring Slam? You filled out a raffle ticket for volunteering. The drawing will be immediately after the membership meeting. Must be present to win.
The Desert Frogs VS the Snowbirds tournament is coming up on Saturday April 1st. Yes. April 1st. This is not an April fouls day joke. The tournament will begin at 2:30pm at the Marinette courts, The signup should be on our web page soon. There will be 42 signups for Frogs, 42 for Snowbirds. 40 players for each. 2 subs/reserves for each.
We will also be having our Farewell dinner on Saturday the 1st pf April. The dinner will be held at the Lake View recreation center. Starting at 6pm. Dinner will be provided. Bring a beverage of your choice. The signup for the dinner should also be on web page soon. There will be 200 signup slots for this event.
Wish i had some good news about the possibility of our club getting more pickleball courts! Not only do I not have good news, I’ve got no news. It appears the new/current RCSC board of directors is going to kill the Lake View project. Not %100 sure, but likely. Looks like they could be starting all over once again, It was one year ago today we had a membership meeting at the Mountain View, Thought there was a plan for good, quality courts to be built at the Lake View. Not sure what the plan is now?
Can’t hardly believe I’m talking about events in April! Some of our Snowbirds are getting ready to head back to their summer homes.
Stay dry and as always, happy hitting.
Hello Sun City Pickleball,
Really nice the weather has warmed up! No layering of clothes. Don’t dare to be the first to say “gosh, it’s to hot”
Spring Slam is coming up starting on Friday. Thanks to the Skaggs for being the tournament directors. Good luck to all of you participating and a big thanks to all the volunteers. Speaking of volunteers. Please wear your Sun City club name tag while you are volunteering. If you were given a purple Aetna Volunteer shirt in the past, please wear it. If not, and you have a purple shirt please wear it. We want to show appreciation to Aetna for their support, sponsorship of the tournament.
Thanks to Tom Jeffers for doing a line judge clinic. Also, a big thanks to Elain Guest and Steve McClean for helping out. Thanks to all of you who took the time to participate in the clinic. We could still use some line judges for the Slam tournament. Sign up on our web page or just show up.
The usual Friday night social hosted by Terry and Murray Griffen is still on! The social night has just been moved to the Mountain View for this one time during the tournament.
Happy hitting, see you on the courts.

Line Judge Training Clinic-Spring Slam 2023
Line Judge Training Clinic-Spring Slam 2023
Club members-if you have been playing pickleball for six months or more, consider fulfilling your Club volunteer requirement as a line judge for our upcoming Spring Slam, March 10-12. Our own Club member, Elaine Guest, is a certified USA Pickleball Referee. Elaine will soon put you at ease with the role of line judge and share her tournament gold medal match experiences with you during this clinic.
A major revenue source for our club is the tournaments that we host every year at the Marinette courts. For our members who have participated or observed tournament play, you know that successful tournaments depend heavily on our club volunteers. One of the most exciting and dynamic volunteer positions is serving as a line judge.
Our tournaments are USA Pickleball sanctioned events, which require line judges for all gold medal matches. A pickleball line judge, much like a tennis line judge, is part of the team that supports the referee by observing the travel of the ball and signaling to the referee if the ball has touched the ground or other object outside the court boundaries.
Line judges have the opportunity to see the gold medal match competition and the best players compete at all the skill levels. For our members looking to learn how to line judge, this class is a must for you. For our seasoned Club line judges, this is an excellent review of the rules and their application to the game.
We’ll spend about an hour discussing the role of line judge, then we’ll apply that knowledge on the courts to practice the new skills. Go to Sign Up Genius and register no later than March 4th. The class is limited to 16 participants, plus four alternates. Paddle, name tags, and court attire are required!
