Fall Ball. Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012

A beautiful day at Gower brought out a fine crowd including one new player, several newer players and a bunch of veterans. Sunny, cool at 60 degrees with an occasional moderate breeze. Welcome to newbie Bill M (last photo) who hails from Campobello - a 40-minute haul, and to the newer players - most or all shown in the collage above and included somewhere in the player list below. UPGers occupied four courts that were kept mostly busy with some fine matches and considerable merriment!

Below: That's Carol and her shadow returning a shot with a high backhand.
We had 19 players in action and one spectator. Players: Pat, Kim, Amy, Julia, Bill M, Karen, Sharon, Gary A, Gary H, Mike, Chris, Steve, Lynne, Walt, Johnny and Carol, Bob T, Barbara and Brenda.
Comment from the peanut gallery. All players are all obliged to shag balls especially after a match concludes. Otherwise the ball bags will be depleted before the other matches are finished. That's it folks. Have fun at p'ball, work to improve your game and you'll enjoy the sport even more than you already do.
