The Big Dill Tournament held May 15-16, 2021 was a great success. Wonderful weather, lots of pickleball players and many fans supported the two full days of pickleball action. Congratulations to the winners, Cathy Forbes & Lynda Burek, Women’s Division, Glen Riggins & Scott Baer, Men’s Division, and Curt & Pat Baskette, Mixed Division. A good time was had by all.

The board of directors voted to approve the construction of a 4-court pickleball court configuration at the May 19, 2021 meeting. Thanks to the many members, the LTA, and the PBA who attended the meeting and expressed their support for the project.

Thank you to the DWCC BOD for their support in approving this project. As we progress through the contract bid, selection and construction process, the team managing the effort will provide progress reports to keep membership appraised.

The pickleball courts continue to experience growth in player participation. With regular scheduled play seven days a week, and clinics there is a session for everyone and with the warmer weather there has been a steady increase in players both current and new. If you haven’t tried pickleball yet by all means come out during a scheduled play time. The courts are also available for family play, and there is a pickleball machine you can rent to help practice your shots if you don’t have a partner. It won’t take long before you are hitting dinks, and worrying about kitchen’s before you know it. Reminder for those who have not paid their PBA dues to contact any member of the PBA and provide their membership fee.

Hope to see you on the courts.
