We are making a change to the initial membership.  It will now be offered at $15 with annual renewal of $15.  Our nice logo club tee shirt will be optional at $20 and anybody will be able to order one.  This will provide additional funds that will be used to run free or low-cost tournaments and leagues.

We are offering business sponsorships for a yearly $200 donation that will be placed on our main web page.  If you know of anyone interested in being a pickleball club supporter, please ask them to contact me.
