Good afternoon this Thursday Sun City Pickleball Club Members,
And the weather is cooperating!!! Fall is a beautiful temp season – “October heat relief”!
Here is a bit more information about a few Club events/activities that are “happening soon”! Links for sign ups are on our Club Website suncitypickleballclub.org
RED WHITE BLUE GREY/BLACK COLOR TOURNAMENT – Monday, November 8 – 3 pm – Marinette
This event is quite like a “round robin” combined with a bit of a “ladder element”. There will be 4 teams divided into 4 color groups – each team member will wear the specific color assigned to their team . . . players will be equally divided into groups of 20 players with similar skill levels competing against each other. There are 3 skill levels that seem to be easiest to identify with – Beginner (novice to 1.5 rating), Intermediate (2.0 – 3.0 rating) and Advanced (3.5 up). This a great opportunity (in a “friendly”, “little competitive” atmosphere) to try out your play with many others of a similar skill level (and meet more nice people in our Club). Each player will play 5 games – sometimes you may play with another player of your color team vs players from other teams. Each game will be with a group of different players – all in the same skill level. No color team member plays against their own team mate – only compete against players from other color teams. Each player accumulates points for their color team. So, if a red team member is teamed with a blue team member, their score counts for each of their teams . . . the other color team (like a blue team member and grey/black team member) accumulates points for their team. The color team with the most points at the end of all games are the “champs”! What fun and team camaraderie!! Sign up, get on a team, wear your color, cheer on your teammates!! There will be some refreshments at the end of play. Volunteers needed!!
VOLUNTEER LUNCHEON – Saturday, November 13 – 11 am – Bell Center Auditorium
A thank you event for all who have Volunteered (4 or more hours) over the last 2 years . . . yes, 2 years because of the “Covid” situation – so, all of 2020 which includes the SSIPA Tournament in January, the Spring Slam in March, plus all those who volunteered with Clinics, Lessons, Ladders, Round Robins, Set Up Committees, etc . . . There are so many Club Members who have volunteered so much of their time . . . come let us “wine” (not really) and dine you with some refreshments and “prizes”!
There are several Ladders (Womens – Mondays, Mens – Thursdays, and Mixed – Fridays) starting soon – all at 11 a.m. A link for sign ups can be found by clicking on “Activities” on our Club Website home page for specific start dates. Thank you to Patty Evans, Mike Luke, Kevin Pates and Dan Haberman for getting these Ladders back “in play”!!
