Meet the “Lobster”

Just in time to help sharpen your game, the club has retired our “Simon” ball machine and replaced it with the “Lobster”. The Lobster Pickleball machine is the perfect practice partner, helping you improve your game with its capacity for random oscillation and speeds of up to 60 mph. It’s located in the same location where Simon lived with complete operating instructions posted. PLEASE follow the instructions when working out with the Lobster. Online manual – https://www.lobstersports.com/img/manuals/OM_pickle0418web.pdf


PLEASE sign in EVERY TIME that you come out to play, and make sure that everyone that you’re playing with also does the same.  Court usage will ultimately determine if, when, and how many more courts we’ll ever have. Yes, it’s THAT important.

Did You Know. . .

. . .  that April is National Pickleball Month? Stay tuned, as the club and the Rec Department will be serving up some nice opportunities for your non-playing friends and neighbors to get introduced to the game.

. . . that Pickleball Central offers us a 5% discount on anything purchased through them? Just use our discount code (CRTellico) to receive your discount.

. . . that the club has a Sunshine Committee formed just to let our members who are sick or injured know that we care about them?  Just drop a note to Dee O’Day (deeoday70@gmail.com) to let her know of anyone who needs this kind of TLC.

. . . if you find a left-behind paddle on the courts, do NOT put it in the utility bin. Instead, take it to the Wellness Center desk. They will store the paddle, call the owner (if possible), and then check the ID of any person claiming the paddle as their own. And if you haven’t already put an ID label on your paddle, do it NOW!

. . . that the club has three resident USAPA Ambassadors?  Bill Mason, Mary Clor and Rich Karakis are all on hand and available to answer any questions and to promote the sport in any way we can.

Donate your old Pickleball Paddles to the club to be used for training new members. Email John Reed, johnrossreed@gmail.com

Cracked balls taken out of play are donated to a local youth group. Please do not squish or squash them.

When signing in each time you play on the courts, we are asking everyone to close the door to the mailbox after they sign in. Most of the time it is not a big deal but when it rains the sheets get wet.
