THIS SHORT VIDEO GIVES YOU A DRILL TO GO FROM DEFENsE TO OFFENCE WHEN PLAYING AGAINST A HARD HITTING OPPONENT.
From Lawana Johnson
Dick Johnson recently competed at the 2016 USAPA Nationals and brought home silver and bronze medals!
The tournament was the largest ever in pickleball history with 900 players of all ages competing over seven days in Casa Grande, Arizona.
Dick has medaled in nine consecutive national and world tournaments in 2015 and 2016. He has won 21 national/world medals (8 golds, 8 silvers, and 5 bronzes)–a feat accomplished by very few players of any age.
Next time you see Dick, congratulate him on a job very well done.
Wow! It’s finally here…
Indoor Evening Pickleball Play!
From Paula Ekins of Boise Parks & Recreation:
Please help us spread that word that Pickleball will be offered in cooperation with Boise School District and Boise Parks and Recreation on Tuesday evenings starting next week.
We are VERY fortunate to have found a facility that allows us to offer evening hours.
As we all know gym space is limited but hopefully some of that can be alleviated if the upcoming school district bond is passed as it will allow for various new gym sites to be built throughout Boise.
What: Drop-in pickleball / TWO COURTS
Location: Frank Church School, 8051 W Salt Creek Ct, Boise, ID 83709 (School is located near Cole Road and Victory). Enter into gym through Information Technology Center door- parking available in front of entrance)
Days: Tuesdays November 8– March 14
NO PLAY on November 22 (Thanksgiving Week) or December 20 & 27 (Holiday Break Weeks).

WE’RE OFFICIALLY KICKING OFF OUR T-SHIRT FUNDRAISER!!
The shirts will feature our logo on the front left pocket area; larger on the back, along with our website to let everyone know how to get in touch with us! The logo colors are red, white and blue and will be printed on a performance t-shirt, which is soft, comfortable and helps wick moisture. Women’s have a v-neck; men’s crew neck.
The shirts are being printed locally. Cost is $15. Sample sizes are available for trying on at Fort Boise during regular play time this week.
These shirts are a great way to support your club and let prospective members know about BPC! If you’d like a shirt but won’t be at Fort Boise this week just respond to Belinda Isley at firstname.lastname@example.org with size, and specify men’s or women’s.
