Pickleball--Week of 07/25/2021

Court Resurfacing Update: Great progress is being made on our resurfacing project. The pressure-cleaning, patching, and the sealing were completed last week and, as of yesterday, the red and green paint was applied to the south half of the complex and they were preparing to do the other half. So, by the time you read this, the red and green should be finished all over. A second coat of the red and green plus the line striping will complete the paint phase. New nets and cleanup will get it back to us before next weekend if everything goes well…….can’t wait for that !!


In case you missed it. This was one of the clues on the popular Jeopardy show last week !!

Here’s an excellent tip from Rodney Grubbs of Pickleball Rocks fame: What is the wrong shot at the wrong time? It is a lower percentage shot taken when the other team is serving. It is when you gave them a free point because MENTALLY you chose the wrong shot instead of a can't miss, high percentage shot………

Quick tip from Morgan Evans on how to develop more backhand volley power:
