Huntsman Game Update

There is lots of rumors circulating about these games,   " They will register 600 this year" ... " "Registration is already full"
Skip the "Rumor Mill" this is the most recent update:
From : Nancy Colarossi, Huntsman World Senior Games
Help us spread the word… Pickleball registration for the Huntsman World Senior Games is still open, but will be closing when we hit the cap. Let your friends know, if they are “thinking” of coming, they need to decide soon or the window of opportunity will be closed!!!

We will be limited to approximately 525 Pickleball players at the Huntsman World Senior Games Pickleball Tournament this year. We are approaching that limit and we will need to close Pickleball registration when we reach the cap of 525 players

Reminder: If your spouse is not playing, there are many benefits for your spouse to Register as a "Fan", you can find all the information for these games at :

We have a group of "54" so far this year, that have e-mailed saying that they are attending!
If you are going and have not e-mailed me as of yet please do so now! RosemaryReese@aol.com

"Pickleball Adventure Jamaica Mon 2012"

Sandi Feller

Sandi is the first Palm Creek club member to attend the annual " Pickleball Adventure",  I asked Sandi to tell us about this Adventure:

Over 135 Pickleball enthusiasts from 22 states went to Beaches Boscobel Resort in Jamaica during the week of May 5th to 12th for a fun filled, all inclusive adventure!
"It was the most fun I have ever had on vacation!"
We played Pickleball everyday and some nights, we had 12 courts available to us at all times. There were 4 clinics held on 3 different days and a "mini tournament" round robin style was held on May 9th. You could do as much or as little as you wanted to do! A lovely goodbye dinner and awards were held on May 10th followed by lots of dancing. Looking forward to next years destination wherever it may be! I hope to see some other Palm Creek Picklers there!
Playing just like kids at camp!
Thanks to Sandi for being sharing this with us, I expect many of us will participate next year!

First Manual

This is the first known manual for our club.  The handout was just 1/4 of page in size and consisted of 5 pages of information labeled the "Basics of the Game".  I do not know who to credit for making this manual.  We can thank Mary Duncan for preserving a copy and sharing it with us.  This manual once again illustrates how fortunate we are to have had a core group of volunteers who set the foundation for our club and promoted the sport!

Please e-mail me
1.If you know who created this manual
2. Who the first men's doubles medal winners are from Palm Creek
3. Any information or pictures that you may have pre 2005, even if you do not think it interesting, it may help confirm other information
