Pickleball Tuesday Afternoon 11-24-09

Posted by PicasaWell we had an interesting start to our pickleball session today. Kevin from the city of Greenville parks and recreation came to talk with us today about the courts. Mike had emailed him about converting the tennis courts at Timmons Park to pickleball courts. Kevin says that the city can not do that but they could possibly build some new pickleball courts for us in the future. He also said that he expects to be resurfacing the tennis courts at Gower Park next spring and said that he will try to have the 5 courts there painted for pickleball. He was a really nice guy and easy to talk to and he says that he likes having us in the park. Kevin is also the one responsible for our pickleball lines that are painted on the tennis courts at Timmons and McPherson Parks, which was instigated by Sharon.
Well once we got started playing pickleball today we had some tough and tense games going. We had 11 players today for such a cloudy kind of day. It was also on the cool side but some of us were still in shorts although it did start to feel cold by the time we were ready to go home. The last game was finished about 4:20. The players today were Steve, Mike, Bob T., John, Jan, Johnny, Catherine, Anne, Carol, Ken & I.
We have some interest for tomorrow so we are scheduling pickleball for tomorrow afternoon at 1:00. We are also planning to play on Friday afternoon at 1:00. Hope you can make it and bring a friend. Lynn
