|Janet instructing the Learning in Retirement group|
Last year, our Pickleball Club created time slots at Mary Hall Gym for beginners only. I went to many of them to help new players learn the game. At one of the sessions, Margaret Stegman asked me if I would volunteer to teach a beginner pickleball class for Learning in Retirement. And I agreed.
Those LiR sessions were held on October 1, 15 and 22; 25 players signed up.
In just three sessions, we have many new pickleball players! I want to thank the regular players who lent their paddles so that everyone would have good equipment. Also, a special thank you to Gloria and Tim Beecham, John Ferguson, Doug Farquharson, Sandy Dupas, Sage Berrett, Len Fuss, Heather Fisher, Angie Cesa, Chris Drysdale and Puleng Pratt for volunteering their time to help coach such a big group.
We look forward to seeing many new players on the courts this season.
