From BAPA President Lisa Griffin
Just a reminder about this weekend’s tournament:
We’ll be playing pickleball at Homecourt from 8:30am until medals are awarded. Men’s Doubles and Women’s Doubles are on Saturday. Mixed Doubles are on Sunday.
If you are interested in watching the medal rounds, here is an estimation of when you can catch them:
Men’s 3.5: ~1:00 pm on Saturday
Women’s 3.0&2.5: ~3:00 pm on Saturday
Mixed 3.0: ~12:00 noon on Sunday
Mixed 3.5: ~12:00 noon on Sunday
Mixed 4.0&4.5: ~2:30 pm on Sunday
The other events are straight round robin, where medals are determined at the end of play. So you’ll just have to come and watch the whole thing.
We’ll also be taking pledges for purchasing bricks to support the construction of the Hobble Creek Pickleball Complex. If you want to see your name in ‘lights’ – this is a great way…and you will be supporting pickleball too.
Lisa Griffin, BAPA President
From Deb Redmond
Hoyt Foster surprised 2C PICKLEBALL in Caldwell this morning with a visit and played a little Pickleball with his left hand.
He looks great for what he’s been through and looking forward to playing more Pickleball.
He called to find out if Caldwell had Pickleball on Saturdays and Sundays.
So……. We all better look out! He’s Back!
Keep those positive thoughts and lifted prayers for Hoyt; he’s doing great!!
