Pickleball Friday 6-27-08

There were 9 of us for pickleball today......Bob T., John, Lynne S., Steve, Ron, Sharon, Anne, Ken and I. Bob T., John, Lynne S., Steve, Ken and I all arrived about 8:30 so we started playing. It was nice and cool then. We started to worry about Ron and Sharon but finally they arrived. Anne came after 10:00 after her aerobics class was over. We had some challenging games all around. It was John's second time and he is doing really well. Ron brought his camera and tripod and took some group shots and some action shots too. Ralph is unable to play because of a foot problem so he didn't make it. Hope he can come back soon. And Bob H. says he's waiting for cooler weather.

Pickleball Friday 6-20-08

We had 9 p'ballers today. The players were Bob T., Steve, Ralph, Ron, Sharon, Lynne S., Anne, Lynn and I. A nice day with a nice light breeze so it wasn't that hot. Lynn and I played a game with Bob T. and Lynne S. as our opponents and the final score was 16 to 14. That is the highest scoring game I think we have ever had. After 3 hours of pickleball we were pretty worn out.

Pickleball Tuesday 6-17-08

There were 10 players for pickleball today. They were Bob T., Steve, Ralph, Ron, Anne, Peter, Lynne S., Sharon, Ken and I. Peter only stayed for one game. He's having knee trouble. And Sharon was late as she had a hair appointment. Steve wants me to put on the blog that he and somebody beat Ralph and I 11 to 0. Maybe he was playing with Bob T. So many games I can't remember. It was hot and humid but we had fun anyway.

Pickleball Thursday 6-12-08

We had a bad storm Wednesday night so Bob T., Ken and I got to the courts early and went to work with brooms and a squeegie to clean up the puddles. And we had to re-chalk. By the time Ralph and Steve arrived though we were into a game of canadian doubles. Ron and Sharon arrived a few minutes later.
It was a little cooler than it had been on Monday but still hot. Shortly after 10:00 we started the games with tennis scoring and rotating the server out. So 3 sat in the chairs in the shade while waiting to go back in. 7 p'ballers today.

Pickleball Friday 6-6-08

It was a hot day for pickleball but we had 9 players to brave the heat. Play started a little earlier than normal. Lynn and I arrived first followed by Claude and Josee. Josee was just dropping Claude off and did not play. After Ralph and Steve came we started playing pickleball with tennis scoring until Lynne S. and Ron and Sharon got there. We had 8 then and that was great. Finally Anne came and rounded us out with 9. Bob T. didn't come today as he went to Pigeon Forge and Bob H. is still recupperating from the pulled calf muscle.
