Rich Gives Pickleball Clinic

On Saturday, Rich did a pickelball clinic for the Kings Point Pickleball League in Sun City Center. Another really hot day even if it was 8:00 in the morning. There was a nice group that attended, from beginners to seasoned players.
The picture to the right is the display case near their courts. Louann is so creative - she always has a great display for the group.
Here are a few pictures from our day in Sun City:
There was really a good group. About 16 or 18, which was a good size for just three courts. Some of the people had only just learned to play. Here's Rich going over the ready position.
The group really had a good time practicing the dink shot. Like most people, once you learn to play you tend to try to hit hard and slam the ball. It really takes practice to master the great placement shots and the ever so effective "dink" shot.

After the clinic, Louann gave both Rich and I a "Pickleball Bug" T-shirt. Louann has a couple of T-shirts on her website that we really like and this is one of them.

The clinic went very well, we had a great time and we got to play a few games before it got too hot!! One of these days we should do a pickleball challege!! Our group against Kings Point!!
