Dick and his Michigan partner, Alice Dodgsen, won 7th Place Ribbons in Mixed Doubles. 

Congratulations!

Dick and his wife Lawona especially enjoyed meeting other great players from across America.

They report that pickleball players, like us here in Boise, are very nice people and very willing to share our new and great sport with others.

And, that they have similar challenges, like the need for courts.  For example, the Gold medalist described clearing out dump truck loads of debris, garbage, and dirt from 2 abandoned tennis courts to create six pickleball courts in Irvine, California.
