Dick Johnson Wins Again

dj-natFrom 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.

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 belindaisley@msn.com with size, and specify men’s or women’s.
