Thanks again to Terry Pearcy and her crew for trying to accommodate the wants and wishes of so many of us in building the schedule to meet our needs.

Facilities Update

We all want our pickleball courts to look great ALL the time, including after it rains, so in addition to the new surfaces and new court signage, the club recently replaced all those grungy, stinky, gritty towels used to dry the courts with brand new, green bath towels.  It will be a huge optical improvement when the towels are hanging on the fences to dry, but they should still be folded and put away as soon as they’re dry.  (BTW, the residents of the Monroe Country Animal Shelter simply LOVE those grungy, stinky, gritty towels!)

Did you Know. . .

. . . that the club is starting to build a really nice collection of water bottles and jugs left on the courts by y’all after play? For now, we’re just storing them in the towel bins (dig deep to find them!) along with other various and sundry items. But there will be a purge point, so you may want to claim yours sooner rather than later.

. . . that Engage Pickleball offers TVPBC club members a whopping 25% discount on paddle purchases?  Our discount code is listed under the “Resources” tab on our website

. . . that the next TVPBC Board Meeting is on Tuesday, October 30th, at 9:00am at the Chota Rec Center?

The club has a Sunshine Committee. Do you know a fellow member who needs a little sunshine in their life? Send Dee O’Day, itsdeeo@charter.net, an email with the member name and address and her team will send them a card to brighten up their day.

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.
