Pickleball @ Cleveland Park Friday 8-29-08

The courts had to be rechalked today because of the rain that we got this week from TS Fay. There were 9 of us for pickleball today.....Steve, Ralph, Lynne S., Ron, Sharon, Bob H., Anne, Ken and I. It wasn't too awfully hot out there. The sun was out. We were surrounded by tennis players and some of them seemed to be interested in our game. I guess they could see that we have a lot of fun.
As the weather gets cooler the courts might be harder to come by. Last week Ken and I went by Timmons Park to see how the work was going there. There is a huge gap in the road where they are suppose to be going to put a big culvert. It looks like a major project. We couldn't drive into the park at all. We have found out that the disc golfers are parking at the swim club that is closed up. You can park there and easily walk into the park. There's a nice big parking lot at the pool. That could be an option for us pickleball players if Cleveland Park becomes too crowded.
The Hendersonville pickleball group has invited our group to come up for a tournament the last of September. So far 5 of us are thinking about going. We're going to email and find out more details about the tournament.
Remember to keep a lookout for potential pickleball players and invite them to come and try the game with us.
Hope to C U on D Courts......Lynn
