PICKLEBALL TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES
Training for pickleball skill sets 3.0 and below
Jerry and Paula Steger, who are 4.0 rated players, are providing pickleball drill sessions for players rated 3.0 and below on Tuesdays at noon. Just show up at the courts and look for Jerry and Paula.
Training for pickleball skill sets 3.5 and above
Larry Kraus, who is a 4.5 rated player, is providing pickleball drill sessions for players rated 3.5 and above at noon on Tuesdays following the ladder play. There will be a signup sheet posted at the courts so Larry had an idea of the number of participants. If you fail to get signed up, you might try to walk up, just find Larry at the courts and ask if you can join.
Ladder play is taking place each Tuesday at 10:00 AM. A sign-up sheet on the board in the middle of the courts on which to sign up and post standings. Please sign up no later than noon on the Monday before the Tuesday play, if you are interested in playing. Play is open to all levels and is open to men and women. It's a great way to challenge yourself and better assess your skill level when compared to players at a similar rating level.
