Two Score…

Nearly two score (two x twenty = 40) members showed up on Thursday for the 5th free pickleball lesson!

What an amazing turnout, and they all learned new skills taught to them by Tim Gleason and Joel Shaber.

Here is a part of the group waiting to work on their next skill.

One of the drills include two dinks across the net followed by a shallow lob that was smashed!

Another drill included a ‘game’ of dinking within the kitchen for as long as possible.

Which was then followed by two dinks and then live play. 0827150926f

The great thing is that all of these drills can be incorporated into pre-play warm ups to get better and better. 🙂

Sitting Room Only!

On Saturday (08/22/15) there were so many players at Hobble Creek Park, that it was Sitting Room Only!

Extra players had to sit and wait their turn…

HCP-2

There were at least fifteen players ready, willing, and able to play.

Makes one wonder…

On any given day, just how many pickleball players are playing across the Treasure Valley?
