Paddle at Picket Post

We’ve got a calendar full of events to interest everyone this season. Come see old friends and meet new ones. Be sure to tell your friends about the Discover Paddle Opportunities throughout September. Let’s spread the word about the game we all love. You need not be a member to come see what paddle is all about. Cost is just $6 per person, with use of racquets included. Look for a sign up in the Paddle Hut or feel free to contact me to reserve a spot.

It is going to be another great season, so come out early and come out often! The courts have been power washed and the paddle hut carpet cleaned as well as some maintenance around the courts completed. See you on the courts!! -Sally Allen, Racquet Director
