Sun City club members are reminded that the first major event of the 2018-19 season on our courts is the Fall Round Up, Oct. 30, 31 and Nov. 1 at the Marinette Recreation Center. Registration for the USA Pickleball Association-sanctioned tournament begins July 15. Information and Registration…
Our next play with the Westbrook Pickleball Club is upcoming on Sunday, May 20th. We have decided to change the playing times to 9am through 11am to try and “beat the heat”.
Westbrook is also wanting to change the mixed doubles blind draw format to include one Westbrook player to be paired with one Sun City player. This would then in effect become more Social play rather than Competition play between our two clubs. This is something that they have suggested we try and I agreed to try it this time to get some feedback as to whether this format is fun for all going forward.
Again this tournament is for all of our 2.0 and 2.5 players so they not only get some tournament experience but also get to know our neighbors a little better.
This next play will be at the Westbrook facility so we might just meet at Marinette at 8:30am then caravan over together. If you know where their facility is, then just be there by no later than 8:45am in order to get checked in and be ready to play.
We will have eight courts, therefore we will need 10 men (8 players with 2 subs) and 10 women (8 players with 2 subs).
I want to thank our club players for their patience and good sportsmanship during these tournaments, it is a pleasure to serve you all.
Please sign up here to support our continued efforts to put forward play and competitions that improve your game and your enjoyment of Pickleball!!
