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 is made up of 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. These stations will be set up at our Fall Round Up Tournament, October 14,15 & 16, 2022 @ the Marinette Center.
Friday, August 12, 6:00-9:00 PM on the bleachers of courts 1-4.

Hi Club Members!
Please stop by the Marinette Center on Monday, March 28th, between 7:30 & 9:30 a.m. to pick up your HAT order from Custom Ink.
I’ll be on the patio by courts 13 & 14.
Good afternoon. Hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather with less wind.
On Monday March 28th we will be having a membership meeting at the Marinette rec center auditorium. The meeting begins at 4 pm. Agenda to come out soon.
Fun Day at Mountain View on Thursday April 7th from 4 to 7 pm. Bring snacks and a beverage of your choice.
Speaking of the Mt. View. There is a new cooler there to store the balls in. Eventually the cooler will have a combination lock on it. The combination will be given out to club members. Should you forget or not get combo it will be available with the monitor where you would check in for the pool You will need to show your green and white club name tag to get combination. The cooler will also have a first aid kit in it and a book of sheets for round robin play. The need to have a locked box is because balls, first aid kits etc. have been disappearing from the Mt. View courts.
I’d like to thank Jeff Skaggs for organizing the reciprocal play with Sun City West. Jeff would like to take a much-deserved break and step back from being the organizer. We will need a new person to be the reciprocal organizer for next year. Please contact me or another board member if interested.
- If you have been playing Pickleball for more than a month and are a beginner to intermediate player (1.5 to 3.0 level), sign up and come to one of the two Rating Clinics being offered on Saturday, March 19 2022. If you have a tournament rating do NOT get a club rating. The USAP Rating supersedes a club rating.
Why should I have a rating? Many of the round robin or ladder activities are designated for certain rating levels. Additionally, the Skill Clinics are listed by certain rating levels.
As your skills improve, you will be able to be re-rated to a higher skill level.
Only sign up for one of the times that Rating Clinics will be offered.
The two options are:
Been beautiful pickleball weather the last several days. Hope you’re all getting out and enjoying.
The Club Tournament is coming up on Friday the 18th. Play begins at 10 am sharp, pizza lunch to follow. If you have any questions or you have signed up and can’t make it, please contact Richard Heywood.
FYI. I spoke at today’s RCSC board meeting with the intent to get some positive communication established between the RCSC board and our pickleball board. I also invited the members of the RCSC board to visit our club tournament and share a slice of pizza with us. My hope is that several board members will accept the invite. There seems to be some misunderstanding that our club is not very friendly and welcoming. So PLEASE be welcoming, courteous and show good hospitality. This is not a time to approach these board members with your complaint and concerns. Let’s just show what a fun club we are by our example.
A big thanks to Lynda Skaggs for setting up an online way to purchase shirts and hats with our Sun City logo on them. You can find the link to purchase these items on our web site. Lynda will also be at the club tournament on Friday with her laptop to assist anyone who would like to purchase a shirt and/or hat.
