CLUB SHIRTS & HATS
It’s time to order your Club shirts & hats! You can order your items through January 30th, 2023. The group order will be placed on the 31st of January, Shirts will be delivered to your home address within 2 weeks once group order is placed. (Here’s a tip….if there are 2 of you in a household, order all your shirts in one order. That way you’ll only pay one shipping charge. (The shipping charge is a flat $6.95 regardless of the # of shirts you order.). The hats will be delivered in bulk to Lynda Skaggs who will notify everyone by email when to pick up your hat at Marinette.
Below are 2 separate links, one for shirts and one for hats.
These links will also be available on our Club Website:

Next reciprocal is January 22nd.
There were some questions that arose on the lineup. Here’s the protocol: The first 6 in any of the divisions will play. If someone drops out from the first 6, then the 7th signup will play. If someone else drops out then the 8th signup will play and so on. Over the past few months there have been a good number of players who had to withdraw their signup. Changes in schedules are totally understood. It is important that we have all 10 slots filled for just those changes! In a few cases over the past 3 months, I have not had all the 10 slots filled in a particular division and had to scramble for players. If we have all 10 slots filled then I don’t have to run through the roster to find players. In addition, we do our best to accommodate the team partner requests but if one of the team signs up as #5 and the requested partner is #7 then it is quite possible you will be teamed with someone else. The way to avoid this is to sign up early!!!!!

I’m sitting here at the Marinette Center today in the pouring rain, looking out on the courts and see several pickleballs getting wet. Please remember to pick up all balls off the courts and empty the ball holders and return them to the coolers.
Happy New Year! Looking forward to seeing you all on the courts!
