Pickleball @ Timmons Park Friday 9-19-08

We had our first official gathering at Timmons Park since the access road was reconstructed and the new Pickleball lines were painted on both courts. Very nice job. No more chalking the lines at Timmons. We couldn't park in out regular spots because several trucks and other equipment took up the spaces. Instead, we parked at the play area just before the Pickleball courts. Present: Lynne S., Ralph, Steve and Ron & Sharon. We used one court, and took turns with one player sitting out. Very nice day with an occasional breeze. We played for about 2-1/2 hours.
In addition to the joy of playing, we were very much entertained by six men who spent over two hours trying to cut down a tree near our usual parking lot. They finally got it to fall with the help of a front loader and we gave a cheer.
We had great time, and had no trouble seeing the new red lines. We understand from Kevin Stiens of the Greenville Park Department, that new Pickleball lines are being painted at McPherson Park as well.
