Beginning late this week Franklin balls will once again be supplied by the Club.
While not perfect, this seems to be the ball that will give the Club the best service for its money for the foreseeable future. Balls will be placed in the racks and coolers. They will not be handed out to anyone for any reason. They are purchased by the Club for use on Sun City courts ONLY. There is no reason for any of them to be in anyone’s bag or backpack!.
The Sun City vs Sun City West Reciprocal was a tight competition yesterday, but we managed to pull it out by winning 50 games to 48 games! This was the fifth competition out of six and as it stands now, Sun City leads the series 3-2. The social gathering and snacks on the patio were enjoyed by all. Thank you to everyone who competed and bringing their “A” game! Special thank you to the scorekeepers: Sam Conway, Frank Spina and Terri Smiley who rushed over to help after winning the Gold Medal with Jan Hodgson at the Grand Canyon State Games Tournament!

A reminder from RCSC that NO outside flyers are to be displayed at our courts without prior RCSC approval. There was at least one flyer around during the SSIPA tournament that had not been approved. While it was an innocent enough flyer, (it had to do w Pickleball in Jamaica) it must not happen again.
The key to access the Lobster machine from our closet is now back at the desk at Marinette.

The courts are extremely crowded at this time of year. Lots of patience and good manners are high priorities. We have scheduled play on many of our courts much of the time, and that may limit the courts available for open play. We all might consider altering our play times accordingly.
Crowded or not, however, there is no excuse for screaming, bullying and some of the other behaviors we have seen over the last few weeks. If a group is coming on to a court you’re playing on, be prepared to exit the court at or before the time the new group is scheduled. If your group is scheduled
During open play, we need to come all the way off the court at the end of each game, not just look out and decide it’s OK to stay! It’s not! If no one arrives promptly to use the court you may certainly go right back on. If you are waiting to play you need to be ready to take a court when it becomes available!
Basically, let’s all behave like the mature adults we think we are and there will be no more issues!
