Slam Food Vendor, Dink Tourney, misc.
Spring Slam: The Spring Slam is coming soon … March 10-12th. There will be a food vendor on site during the tournament. He will provide hotdogs, chicken and turkey sandwiches, blueberry muffins, cheese danish, hot chocolate, coffee, water, and soda. We also have several paddle and shirt vendors along with a variety of other things available to purchase. Please support our vendors. Our club has several players entered so come out and cheer them on and watch some good matches at all levels. Thank you to everyone that has volunteered. Please make sure you are at your assignment on Friday thru Sunday to help make this annual tournament another success for our club and Sun City.
Dink Tourney: The Dink tourney is scheduled for Tuesday, March 28th starting at 8:00 a.m. Grab your favorite dink partner and get signed up on our web page. The fee is $5 per team and you must sign up with a partner. This event is open for all ratings … players will be divided into two different brackets … for 2.0-3.0 and 3.5 and up. Please pay your fee to a board member or drop a check in the mailbox at Marinette. Remember, this is a dink only event. No slams. All balls must be in the kitchen, starting with the serve and continuing until a player hits it out of the kitchen, out-of-bounds, or into the net. Seems simple right. Well, come and try this basic skill challenge. This will be a double-elimination event. If you have any questions, just ask a board member or send us an email. Flyers have been posted at each facility.

Belgian Film Documentary Visit: On Tuesday, March 14th, Marinette will be visited by Jonas Herman, a Belgian filmmaker. If you’re playing Pickleball on that Tuesday, please be prepared to be captured on camera playing Pickleball and it would be really nice if our club members were wearing their Sun City Pickleball Club t-shirts. Don’t hesitate to invite Jonas to play our favorite game. He will be in Sun City the week of March 12-19 getting to know our area and the various clubs.
