Eight players showed up for Pickleball today including Johnny and Carol. We thought they had been soaking up the sun and taking life easy in Florida for the last month, but it turns out that they spent a lot of time playing P'ball - 3 & 4 times a week! And it showed in their playing. It didn't take long for them to get into the game - especially at the net.

Players in action: Jan, Mike, Ralph, Johnnie, Carol, Bob H, John & Ron

We had many fine matches highlighted by a lot hard-fought net volleys. This rapid-fire action - up close and personal - took its toll on at least three players who took direct hits. The players, by a stroke of luck - suffered only minor flesh wounds and are expected to fully recover in a week or so.

In the mean time Upstate P'ballers are taking the rest of this week off. We will be back in action the week starting Feb 14ht. Better not forget that date!
