Two courts at the Weatherstone sub-division have now been painted (I did this myself in order to save cost) and play there has begun. Next month we'll be scheduling another training session in order to get more residents involved.
The Raleigh/Wake Senior Games demonstration event is now slated for May 10th. Eight players from the Cary Bond park group will play the demo games with Mike Walsh providing coordination and program promotion.
Mike and Lyn Walsh traveled to Pinehurst NC and working with Matt Downing (Tennis Club Pro) and Rudy Van Zanten (supportive resident) initiated Pickleball with a kick off clinic, which resulted in a further commitment for play at the Pinehurst Tennis Club. Since then paddles and balls have been secured and identified trainers are now in the process of launching a Pickleball program.
