The Seniors at Prince Creek West area are still going strong since our clinic on September 8, 2011. Carol and Tom Gray have painted two courts in a parking lot and they play twice a week. I loaned them my paddles and net to get started and now they have ordered one net and four paddles. Carol and Tom are doing a fabulous job promoting Pickleball. Carol is becoming a member of USAPA. Seasons at Prince Creek West in Murrells Inlet, SC has been added to our places to play.
On September 16, 2011, North Myrtle Beach Pickleball players came to Crabtree Gym for a tournament and we had some real good matches and fun was had by all. A big thank you to Richard Brown for setting up the tournament. He did a great job. Thanks also to Fay Mills for planning the refreshments. Thanks to Diane and Rich Skrovan who were a big help and also took photos of the day and of the winners.
All of our players from Crabtree prepared a nice lunch which everyone enjoyed. Thanks to all who took part in a truly fun day.

Thank you to Rich and Diane Skrovan who helped me hold a clinic there on September 19th. We had 10 people attend. David is so eager to get Pickleball going that it makes me want to help him as much as I can. Right now Pickleball is played on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10am to Noon. If the interest is there the courts will be available 7 days a week. I will be going there on Fridays to teach newcomers till we find someone to take over. Although I will be driving 30 miles each way in order to help him, David is so eager to get Pickleball going that it makes me want to help him as much as I can. We have also added the Conway Recreation Center, in Conway, SC to our places to play too.
