On a blistering hot day, thirty eight players turned out to heat up the courts even more.
The annual Spring Fling was held at 1:00 PM, June 3rd on the tennis courts. Audience and participants called it a resounding success. We had plenty of wonderful snacks with water and Gatorade to cool everyone down and supply the players with energy.
In spirit of the spring theme we had three divisions, Cosmos, Adonis and Protea, named for varieties of flowers. The division winners were:
First Place: Larry Martinson and Trish O’Neill
Second: Charlie Bougapoulis and Sherry Benz
Third: Frank Houghton and Anna Hewitt
First Place: Leo Ruth and Sheryl Ruth
Second: John Stratakos and Dennis Cullen
Third: Ralph Lentz and Melinda Dobbs
First Place: Norm Krishna and Alex Shtarker
Second: Mark Gregg and Anahid Gregg
Third: Mike Walias and Dave Roberts
The Pickleball Club would like to acknowledge the Tennis Club’s help in their growth and development by allowing use of the tennis courts. Hopefully we will see dedicated Picklleball courts in the not too distant future. Debbie Champion, Club Board President, came to find out first hand what’s with all the “Pickleball fuss”. She said she was amazed at the amount of participation and camaraderie.
