Court Flooding

No Pickleball This Weekend!

It’s another rainy day in Paradise! The Pickleball courts are already flooding, so there isn’t much chance that they will be dry anytime soon. Rather than inundating everyone with emails, I will post updates on the Facebook Page – Mesa Regal Pickleball and Hiking, and on the Mesa Pickleball website. When there is a need for help cleaning the courts once they are emptied, I’ll send out the request only to those who have indicated on their membership forms that they are willing to help. If you haven’t done that but have heard from a friend that it is happening and would like to help, feel free to join them.

The Pickleball/Tennis Fun Day has been postponed to Sunday, March 1st. See Home Page under Events for more details.

Pickleball/Tennis Fun Social, 2019

At last the rain stopped and the sun came out, just in time for the Pickleball/Tennis Fun Social. A big thanks goes out to all of those who worked so hard to organize this. Fun was had by all, including some of us pickleball players who had a hard time converting to tennis! Others did amazingly well for the first time.

Here are a few pictures. Since I was participating, I didn’t get very many.

Still a little cold when waiting on the deck to get started

I was fortunate to have three tennis players coaching me. They had a difficult job!

Just a few of our PB players

When it was all done, we enjoyed lunch of pizza and salad and a chance to meet new people from both clubs, on the Sports Patio.
