A big thanks to Craig Carlton for this magnificent photo of our courts at sunrise.


And in a flash the summer has flown by and we’re looking forward to the start of a new season! I just heard that the monsoons have hit Arizona, later than usual, so we’ll have to see how that will effect the opening of the pickleball schedule. All of the Board members plan to return to Mesa near the end of October, so we can start planning our schedules and prepare to get started in early November, weather permitting.

Safe travels to all of you who are returning from distant places to your winter home and friends.


The new Board of Directors for the 2019-20 Season will be:

Pat Porter, President, president@mrpickleballclub.com
Judy Lawless, Vice President, vicepresident@mrpickleballclub.com
Donita Houghton, Treasurer, treasurer@mrpickleballclub.com
