Creekers getting more press

When club members go home - they can't cure their addition - they have to play and leave no stone unturned; when figuring out where to play and finding new people to play the game.  Read the article to see which club members have been quoted!

Palm Creek makes the cut

An article about Pickleball in the Arizona Republic, talks about where to play in the region. Our club was the only club outside of the Pickleball mecca of the Surprise/Sun City to be mentioned
We have known for quite some time our club has been on the map of great places to play, now it has been documented!

Huntsman World Senior Games

Each year as we have seen this tournament grow, it has been a barometer for the overall growth we could expect for the upcoming season. Although registration remains open for the other 26 participating sports until September 1st, not for Pickleball.  The following has been posted on the Huntsman website

Upon reaching the 400 mark, registration for Pickleball closed. The Games is keeping a waiting list, so athletes who would like to be considered to fill in if there are cancelations are encouraged to call the Games office at (800) 562-1268. Athletes on the waiting list should know by August 15, 2011 if they will have a place in the tournament.

This is pretty big news as this is the first time this has happened at Huntsman

There is even bigger news for our club. As part of a series, LeRoy Schmidt has been featured in an article on the Huntsman website.  LeRoy for the past 2 years with his wife Barb has been our Tournament Director and  they are both voulunteers for our Novice training program.
