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.
