LWR Pickleball Club News: July 2021

Membership:  563 Welcome 21 new members.

Doubles League:

The new Picklecap doubles league is under way with 32 players in two levels. For more information visit www.griffinleagues.com.

Team League:

The fall league will be starting back up in October running through March.  We will be using the Picklecap system to schedule and track team matches.  I’m looking for Team Captains to be responsible for organizing their players/schedule.  Like the doubles league, you will schedule based on both team’s availability.  This league will be free and all players must be members for liability purposes.  There will be two levels (Novice/Intermediate) (Intermediate/Advanced) with 8 matches per date, 2MD, 2WD, 4MXD.  The number of dates played will be determined by the total teams signed up in either the NI or IA leagues.  Contact me if you wish to host a team.

Clinic:  I’m hosting two free clinics with round robin play at LWR H.S. in July.  Please register at https://playtimescheduler.com/login.php

Tip:  Look to hit your third shot softly into the middle.  It does not have to be a drop in the kitchen to be effective.  This will help keep your opponents off by forcing them to move sideways and hit a lower shot.  Look for the high return to put away.

I’m pleased to announce that Harris Williams will be replacing Carol Lucas as our Executive Vice President.  Carol will continue to assist and offer her guidance going forward.
