NewBlood - Friday Ball - January 20, 2012

Luckily NewBlood is only used here figuratively. Two new players joined us today. Their first time playing Pickleball on a court, but having played on a driveway with a temporary net. Both youngsters, by our standards, and playing with wooden paddles. But, they are also tennis players and took to the courts with much enthusiasm and vigor. For sure! Welcome to Daniel and Trevor shown below L-R.
Also present: Mike, Lynne, Pete, Steve, Gary A and Ron. After about a half hour of playing we had a rain squall - just enough to wet the courts sufficiently to add a little more excitement to the several matches that followed.
In spite of the conditions we played for about 2-1/2 hours and everyone took their chances against the  dynamic duo. 'Middle-agers' that we are - we were able to win some games from the fleet-footers.

See you Tuesday. Come on out and have some fun. Like the good old days!!!
