Hello, Sun City, Pickleball Club.
Lynda Skaggs has made arrangements for a clinic to come to the Marinette. Follows is a description of the clinic.
Patrice Ayala, professor from Midwestern University, a Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Geriatric Physical Therapy will be coming to the Marinette pickleball courts along with several of her students to teach a class on what to-do to avoid a fall (fall risk) and then a little bit about the “best” way to fall.
Best way to fall is part of their “Senior Athlete Fitness Exam” (SAFE for short) and several little stations; taking vitals, testing walking speed, (which is highly correlated to fall risk), grip strength, shoulder and ankle flexibility, balance on even and uneven surfaces with eyes open and closed.
If you’d like to attend this FREE educational class, please use sign up on Sign up Genius.
Hopefully this class will be offered again this winter.
Our annual Fall Tournament “Pickleball Round Up” is open for registration. Our members get a $10 discount on their entry fee. Free lunch for all players. This is a wonderful tournament to get started in your tournament career, it’s open to levels 2.5 to 5.0. Go to https://www.pickleballtournaments.com/ to register. Lynda Skaggs is available if you need assistance.
The committee that was formed to oversee/help with design and construction of the courts coming to the Lakeview met recently. The committee did some brainstorming and we have passed on a list of needs and wants to the RCSC. I’d like to thank the club members who stepped up to be on the committee. Jeff Skaggs, Bill Booth, Dave Breault, Sue Bryant, Mike Lasker, Dave Parenteau, Marcia Gregory, Rachel Trojanovich and myself. We’ll keep you posted as we get information.
We have new windscreens on the Union Hills side of the courts.15 and 16 and 19 and 20. Coming in November will be the resurfacing of all the courts at the Marinette. Schedule of that project with be forth coming.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! Happy Hitting.
