The Boise Pickleball Club’s Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday, August 7, at Manitou Park starting at 4:00 p.m.
Potluck Social, election of officers and Pickleball play are all on the menu!
More information to follow later in July, but please save the date on your calendar!
Drills and Skills are canceled today…. 🙁
According to many of the top pro pickleball players, the BEST way to improve your game is to DRILL, DRILL and then DRILL some more.
Practice makes perfect. All it takes is setting aside at least ten drilling minutes each time you play to work on fine-tuning your game with some skill specific drills. Commit to that and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly your game will improve.
The Boise Pickleball Club will offer another free Skills + Drills clinic for BPC members on Thursday, May 26 – Manitou Park, starting at 9:00 AM.
These clinics will familiarize experienced players with drills, designed for 2 to 4 players, which can be used to improve pickleball skills.
Bring your paddles. Balls provided. Open play after the clinics.
