Welcome back fellow Sun Village Pickleball Players!                                                                     January, 2013
As our season began we have had lots of interest in learning Pickleball.  We began lessons starting in Nov and have continued into the new year. Last week’s class was full, not only with sign ups, but also with people stopping by as lessons were being given by our own Chuck Beck.  Thanks to all of those who have generously given their time to teach.  We will continue with lessons twice monthly so be sure to give back by volunteering to teach.
Additional lights were added in December to enhance our courts for nighttime play. We have already started our “Happy Hour “ Pickleball play on Monday at 4:30 pm, so be sure to stop by for a drink or a game or two.  As the winter progresses we’ll see  morning play become more congested.  I have suggested some ideas for additional play during the day and evening hours as well. Try to participate in as many events as you can. I am looking forward to sharing ideas and getting suggestions and participation from all our members.
See you on the courts!
