Another tournament well done! To those who placed (won medals), CONGRATULATIONS!
There were other champions of effort among us. Even with rain causing delays and adjustments to the play on Saturday, the Tournament Director, Glenn Jones and Volunteer Coordinator, Pat Klepadlo, saw to it that we got through all the matches. The past few days were not without challenge and a lot of coordination required. Nonetheless, Glenn Jones ensured we had a fun, rewarding and complete tournament.
The tournament could not have occurred without many volunteers. Our volunteers made it happen for the players/visitors. You volunteers Rock! This was coordinated by Pat Klepadlo, volunteer coordinator.
An enormous THANK YOU to Glenn, Pat and all you great volunteers!

Lastly, I will take this opportunity, President’s privilege, to point out two individuals who demonstrated exemplary “class” and “sportsmanship” during the Spring Slam. I would like to say these are the people I’m proud of seeing represent Sun City Pickleball Club. Each of them finished their respective gold matches and went around to the line judges and the referee, shaking their hands and thanking them for their time and effort. One was a winner and the other took second place. These two ladies no matter winner or loser of the match took the time to give appreciation to the those that helped officiate…an often forgotten thankless job. Ladies, I believe you know who you are, you “wow’d” me.
Now, who else noticed these fine examples of good sports?
Enjoy your next practice, lesson or match. Be safe and have fun.
