One point five dozen. April 2, 2013

It was great to have Jan, Anne and Joanie back on the courts after a long hiatus - especially Joanie and Jan who have been on the lam for several months. They got right into the mix and played well. Eighteen players showed: Gary A, Gary H, Steve, Kim, Ray, Johnnie, Barbara, Julia, Glenn, Lynda, Walt, Ralph, Don, Anne, Mike, Joanie, Jan and Ron..

It looks like there will be a good turnout for the Pickleball Session of  the Greater Greenville Senior Sports Classic. About 40 players have registered - several from the UPG. Players from Connestee Falls, Ft Mill, Keowee Keys and other locations have also signed on. So, this event will give us all an opportunity to compete with players from outside our little group and to renew friendships with folks we have played with and against in past events. You must register by April 5th. The event will take place at Gower Park on Monday, April 15th starting about 3 PM. If you don't want to compete, why don't you stop by and cheer on the players. Check in with Gary A for pairings, etc.

Spring has sprung. Dust off your paddle and join us at Gower. Watch your UPG e-mail notifications. We will be changing to our Summer time schedule soon.
