New group of “Pickleballers”……..There was a nice “warm” (90 degrees) welcome for the new addition of pickleball players. Our friends from the Sports Council of Collier County, Mary Shea, President, also of Chartwell Hospitality, Kurt Hoenig, Secretary also of Century 21, Dan Sullivan, Past President, also of Greenlinks Golf Villas of Lely, Tony Meade, Naples Transportation, Mike Balcom, Century 21, and his working colleague Max.
We had friends from Village Walk getting a head start as they are installing new pickleball courts in their community, they were stars on the courts!
Also in attendance were two of our new team of FGCU students Kelly Wilson and Miranda. Their team are working on a fundraising project for Pickleball For All, which will help them complete their requirements at FGCU. STAY TUNED…….More to come on this topic! Kelly’s mom, Gina also came over from Broward County to be part of this clinic!
Special thanks to my wife Carol, brother-in-law Dick, and Nancy Harper, Director of Development, Pickelball For All, for their help with this clinic.
Extra Special thanks to Kyle Yates, our newest member of Pickleball For All Board of Directors (not pictured) for helping get us started. He drove down from Ft. Myers to be part of this and had to leave early for a commitment in Tampa.
