Official P'ball Report - Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Above: You'll have to figure out who is who. Barbara (that should be fairly easy), Bob D, Gary A, Ray G, Mike and Don.

It started out hot and humid and and pretty much stayed that way, except we got a little more of each as the session progressed. A good crowd turned out, though. Hard core, or a little slow on the draw? Hard core wins out. Seventeen players: Steve, Gary A, Bob T, Mike, Sandy, Barbara, Peter, John, Walt, Don, Sharon, Jacob, Ray G, Bob D, Joanie, Hank and Ron.
Below: Tricky. Just like above only different. Steve and Don, Bob T and Mike, Gary and Barbara and Hank and Jacob.

Many fine matches followed and the courts were kept busy, but perhaps not as busy as the Official UPG Tree (shown below) which had quite a workout comforting resting p'ballers.
Listen up: The pickleball tournament element of the Hickory Nut Gorge Olympiad, on beautiful Lake Lure in NC, will take place on Friday, August 24, 2012. It is a great event and it is highly recommended that you rustle up a partner (or partners) and join the fun. It was a very well run event last year when the UPG entered several teams . This will be a good opportunity to see how your game matches up with players from different areas and with different game plans. UPG teams are being formed at this very moment. Every one should have received info about the games. If not contact Gary A or Ron B at Gower and you'll be set straight. Promise.
See you on the courts.
