Pickleball Tuesday 4-29-08

We had 8 players today: Two Bobs, Ann, Claude, Steve, Ralph, Sharon and me. Excellent weather with so little wind, that we couldn't - in good conscience - use it as an excuse for errant shots. Though there we many. We switched everyone around after each couple of games. Ann, close to the net took a mean shot on the arm by Claude (also close to the net) who apologized profusely. Ann's arm turned bright red at the point of impact but it didn't slow her down - only made her more competitive and she pounded some deadly shots back at the competition to take the win! We had many good games, with no bloodshed, but with a lot of earthy phrases accompanying good shots and bad misses.
We'll be playing again of Friday AM.

Pickleball Friday 4-25-08

We were four strong this AM. We two + Bob H. & Steve. Most of our games were fairly flat. Bob was on fire though and made many good shots. It was warm and the breeze helped cool us down, but took a lot of shots out of the court.
We played for 2 hours and managed to have some good games in spite of the general lack of ambition - the notable exception being Bob.
We are tentatively going to schedule next week's games on Tue and Fri, both at 10:00AM.

Pickleball Wednesday 4-23-08

We played pickleball on Wednesday 1:30PM. Ann, Steve, Alexandra (answers to 'San' - short for Sandra) and Sharon and I were present. Very nice day, but warm and we were actually glad when we got a breeze. We didn't bother putting new chalk lines down, just went over the faint lines with the sidewalk chalk. We played doubles and just rotated the extra player in after each game. San did well for her second time out - the first time probably a few months ago.

Pickleball Wednesday 4-16-08

Sharon and I arrived at Timmons Park at 1:15 for the 1:30 scheduled match. Bob T. was already there. A beautiful, sunny day with mostly a gentle breeze. Bob, Sharon and I marked up both courts, even though we had only received 3 confirmations for attendance. Bob H and Steve arrived. We played several games of doubles with one player sitting out in rotation. We used only one court. We had some very good games and we were pretty much tuckered out after almost
2-1/2 hours. Of course, Bob H left after exactly 2 hours as is his custom.
We are planning on playing again on Friday at 10:00AM.

Pickleball Friday 4-11-08

We met at Timmons Park this morning. 4 of us got there early about 9:30. We were scheduled to play at 10:00. Didn't have to re-chalk today. No rain for the past few days. So the 4 of us started playing. Then Steve came and we worked him in. Anne came late after her aerobics class this morning. So there were 6 of us there. Bob T. came for his first time since he got back from Florida. The rest were Ron, Ken and I. Ron's wife Sharon wasn't feeling well so she didn't come. We had some great games. Ken took a fall and landed on his butt. Now he's having trouble walking. During that game he and Steve were playing against Anne and I. I guess Anne and I were too tough for him. Ha! We took turns playing doubles today. Since there were 6 of us, when 4 were playing doubles, the other 2 would play singles on the other court. It was a nice morning. Lynn

Pickleball April 8, 2008

We met for pickleball today at 1:30 at Timmons Park. Had to re-chalk the courts again. It rained over the weekend. We really had some great games today. There were 8 of us playing so we had 2 courts of doubles. Bud joined us today for his first time. He played really well.
Our 8 players were Ron, Sharon, Anne, Steve, Bob, Bud, Ken and I. Ron brought his digital camera and took some pictures. Anne and I played a game of singles as our last game.
It was cloudy and a little on the cool side but we warmed up fast. Lynn

Wednesday April 2, 2008

We played pickleball at 1:30 at Timmons Park. Had to re-chalk the courts because of the rain. There were only 6 of us to play as some of our regulars were on spring vacations. Ron, Steve, Ralph, Peter, Ken and I played canadian doubles on both courts until Peter had to leave. Then we played doubles taking turns to sit out since there were 5 of us left. It was a really nice day. Not too much wind and it was sunny and in the upper 70's.
