Pickleball is growing in Wayne County (about 50 miles east of Raleigh, on your way to the beach)! Although we’ve been playing for just a year, the sport is catching on here. We have limited indoor courts on which to play (only 6 total in 4 venues), but we have more than 60 enthusiastic players (mostly seniors) on our roster and about 25-30 play weekly. On February 16 the Goldsboro Family YMCA allowed us to host an Intermediate Skills clinic/demonstration conducted under the guidance of Joe Borrelli, District Ambassador for NC Coastal Plain with his skilled assistants Luis Vazquez, Cary Ambassador, Bob Hendrickson, Fuquay Varina Ambassador, Kelly Gent of Wake Forest and Becky Hendrickson of Fayetteville. For three hours more than 30 players learned strategies for advanced play, practiced drills, played short games and had FUN!
On Friday, February 26 we’re having our monthly “All-Day Pickleball Play & Potluck” at the Herman Park Rec Center, starting at 11 a.m. for NINE hours of fun! Players in the late afternoon or early evening are asked to bring finger foods, snacks, soft drinks or desserts for the potluck, beginning around 6 p.m. It’s a great chance for those unfortunate folks who have yet to retire to play with those lucky ones who are! Although we only have one court on which to play, a good time is guaranteed for all who attend! See you on the court…
