NO PICKLEBALL DAYS

 
Nopickleball on Sunday, May 27 at NSSRC (the Rec. Centre).
 



SUMMER PLAYING TIME

We are playing at NSSRC (the Rec. Centre) in airconditioned comfort.
Every Sunday night from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, drop-in players are welcome.
A $3.00 drop-in fee will apply to non-members.

PILOT INITIATIVE FOR OUR CLUB MEMBERS ONLY:
We are outgrowing our facilities and in order to manage large crowds at NSSRC,
we have decided to look after our members first and provide them with play time without a lengthy wait for a free court.

Our members may now also play, at no extra charge, every Wednesday night from 7:00 to 9:00 PM (June, July and August).
No drop-ins on NSSRC Wednesdays,
non-members will be turned away.

Tay Shores school is closed for pickleball from June 1 to mid September.

Always check the following link to be sure when and where we are playing:

OVERCROWDING PLAY AT TAY SHORES PUBLIC SCHOOL

We wish to thank those at Tay Shores school for making the transition to our posted play.

Tuesdays for Intermediate/Advanced Competitive players
Thursdays for Novice/Recreational players

We had to enforce this rule as we had 30 players for two courts on Tuesday, April 17th. The influx was caused by members returning from the South.

We moved to 14 players on Tuesday April 24th and 20 on Thursday April 26th. Thank you for your consideration of others where as much as possible players can play at similar levels without overcrowding.

 

TIFFIN PARK

The Town of Midland let us know that the nets will be setup the week of May the 7th.
Happy playing everyone, bring your new outdoor ball and a broom if necessary.

WHAT DID I LEARN IN THE LAST MONTH?

Here is another great video about the kitchen, a must see!
Ever heard someone disagree about a non-volley zone foot fault? Look no further! This fun video is the most complete pickleball non-volley zone rule video ever! Packed full of information, it is a one-stop shop for you to have all your questions answered and learn more about the multi-faceted non-volley zone rule in pickleball. Hear from pickleball champions Alex Hamner and Jennifer Lucore alongside our host Rusty Howes, as they break down the non-volley zone rule in its entirety as well as show some helpful real-life examples of actual NVZ faults. Reviewed by the USAPA, this video is a necessity in understanding this fun game of pickleball!
