Pickleball--Week of 11/17/2019
NEWS from Georgia Mountain Pickleball.
Welcome pickleball players to the GMPC news.
It is incredibly beautiful in the Georgia mountains last week and this week with the fall colors in full display. We are getting to the end of the leaf season, so enjoy it now. We will continue to play at Lakeside (when we can) and move to the Old Rec Center when the weather tells us to go inside. Saturday, we had players both indoors and outdoors. Terry, Benny and Jettie had the Novice clinic indoors with about 6 players to work with. We had a full crowd indoors and used paddle stacking for next to play. Great time for all.
The 4th Annual Pickled Turkey Shootout is being held in Rabun County Rec Center this weekend (11/22-11/24). Good luck to all the players in the tournament, especially those from GMPC. Cathi & I will be volunteering again for this event. It should be fun to play in and for those who are watching.
Another one of the center straps broke at Lakeside. John Hall is working with the county to get replacements. For now, use one of the courts with a center strap or hit it a little higher in the middle. We hope to get a few other issues resolved at the lakeside courts this winter. If you see anything that needs fixed, let us know.
Please enjoy the pickleball tips, information on events, places to play and the wealth of information that is provided on our website.
See you on the courts,
