Hi Helen,

I just wanted to send you an email to remind the group that your rental is from 7 – 9 pm.  If you would like to rent the gym at 6:30 pm please let me know and I can do my best to add the additional time for you.  If you would rather not add the additional time, please remind your members of the start time of 7 pm. 

Thanks so much.

REMINDER ABOUT FRAGRANCES

Some of our members are sensitive to fragrances like perfume and cologne. Even small amounts or clothes worn which were in contact can trigger migraines and trouble breathing in others, so we do ask that our players refrain from wearing it at both the Rec. Centre and Tay Shores School. They both have a Scent Sensitive policy in place. 

Thank you for your co-operation.

PS. Deodorant is NOT considered a perfume  ;-)



PICKLEBALL OVERSEAS
Found on the USAPA website.

Pickleball is catching on in the city I was born and just had to share it with you.
Anyone up for going on a visit to Holland next year?
I could play tour guide  ;-)

All we need is money, arrange for hotels and someone who can drive a bus.
The rules of the road are quite different from what we are used to here.

"Nice grant for Pickleball Haarlem.
The city of Haarlem awarded Pickleball Haarlem a nice grant. This allows for funding of 6 nets, 24 paddles and indoor/outdoor balls. In addition, there is money to add pickleball lines to 5 outdoor handball fields at the Van der Geest Sportpark in Haarlem North! From July we can go there on Thursday evening and other days TBD. We will organize various gettogethers and tournaments this summer, and also invite other pickleball groups"



WHAT DID I LEARN IN THE LAST MONTH?

It is important to play and stay at the kitchen line.  I see a lot of players go half way and get caught in the "no man's land area of the court" and never really get to the kitchen line.

Check out this YouTube video on why you should be playing at the kitchen line.

Always stay out of the kitchen if volleying, enjoy the livingroom instead!
