Tuesday P'ball - September 25, 2012

Upstate Pickleball is alive and well. It's just the Blog that has fallen on hard times. But, Mr and Mrs Blogger did show themselves on this beautiful Fall day - Sharon to play a few matches and I (Spike) watched, blabbed and took a few pics. The courts were mobbed and even a few tennis players (instructor and student) daring to mingle with the 18 p'ballers. Steve was kind enough to send along the names of the players: Bob T, Johnny and Carol, Peter, Lynne, Chris, Barb, Walt, Sandy and John, Ray, Ray, Sharon; newbies: Brenda, Pat, Kim and Rob. Welcome. It's always nice to see new blood. Relax: It's only a figure of speech!

P'ball session - Friday, Sept 14, 2012

Pickleball paddle palette. L-R: Sharon, Barbara, Ray and Sandy.

Sharon and I (Spike) came to p'ball after a 6-week hiatus and 3 weeks after I had both knees replaced. Sharon played one match and was admittedly a little rusty. But, it was good to be on the courts again and see some of our p'ball pals. Players: Mike, Steve, Bob T, Gary A, Sandy and John, Johnny, Walt, Don, Ray, Sharon, Barbara and Bob D.

Above: Spike (with trekking poles and new knees) and Johnny with his braces.

It was great to see everyone today and thanks for the warm greetings.
