Hello First State Pickleballers!
We have been very busy planning some great pickleball activities for the remainder of the year – please read all the way through.
We all want our FSPC players to continue to elevate our level of play, Our Delaware players have continued to win multiple medals in many tournaments this year and that happened in DE, MD, NJ and VA at the Senior Olympics. You might not be interested in winning medals but I bet that this clinic will double your fun when playing. Banging the ball is fun but can get boring. Why not come out and let our instructors challenge you to expand you skills and knowledge of the game.
Not sure if this one is for you? Well it is. We all think that we know how to play this game. Our friends could tell us our areas of weakness but who are they to tell us what we are doing wrong? You can get this from our instructors who have worked very hard on their own games and want to share their knowledge with you!
Anyone who can keep the score and knows the fundamental rules is welcome to come out. We will do our best to group you with similarly skilled players so that you get the most out of this opportunity to learn some skills that will improve you game.
Second, on November 19th AT 6:45 pm our social committee has set our Club up to listen to Bryan Clarke at Hooked Seafood & Martini Bar(302-827-4944) located in the Midway Shopping Center in Lewes, DE. Call the restaurant directly for reservations. We did this event last year and it was a blast! Bryan is a local who can really sing and entertain while we get to dance, sip, and eat some great food. Everyone who attended last year had a great time. Who knew that many pickleball players liked to dance. Maybe dancing helps improve balance and agility on the court. Who knows?
Third, we are also putting together plans for our Holiday Party on 12/16 at Kings Creek Country Club in Rehoboth Beach. We are limited to 130 attendees and will have the “Over Time” band providing the music again this year. Everyone that we talked to wanted us to keep everything the same as last year so we did. Anyway, this event will sell out quickly so do not hesitate to get your check in to ensure that you have a chance to experience this fantastic event. This wonderful event will only be $35.00 a ticket (cash bar). We could not offer the same deal as last year but hope that many of you will agree that it is still a bargain for dinner and dancing with a live band in a beautiful setting. Stay tuned for the specific email announcement coming out soon.
Our social committee wants to put something special together for that evening and is asking for any pictures you have from your group of players or events that you have attended over the past year. We would like to include pictures from the many existing and new venues that have popped up this year. If you would, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with the location and names of people in the picture. We want to collect people and places where we are playing in Sussex County. Should be a very cool project. Thank you Robbin for agreeing to take on this project!!
Speaking of benefits, Vaughn Baker has scored another deal:

Last, but not least…
Please don’t forget to use the Code CRFirst when you order products from Pickleball Central (pickleballcentral.com) to get the 5% discount and the club also gets a 5% credit to use for club purchases. Engage Paddles is still offering a 25% discount when you use the code FSPC at time of check out. Engage (http://engagepickleball.com/ ) also gives us 8% back to use on club socials. Many of our players have tried the paddle and have ordered one. Also, remember that you get a 10% discount at New Balance when you purchase a new pair of court shoes. It is a wonderful deal and the sales people there really know their shoes.
Well, that is it for now. Hope to see you on the courts!
