Referee Clinic
Ann Early

About 8 years ago Ann took our referee clinic taught by Tom and Jeanne Gearhart.  Ann decided to take the clinic again this past season, with Tom and Jeanne, to better prepare herself to offer this clinic at home in Georgia.  Following the same format: class, court experience and the referee test, Ann hopes to add 24 new referees to the roster.  Experienced referee's are a great asset to have on the courts, to assist players in learning the rules of the game, in addition to having them for tournament play.

If you are winning medals this summer or if your Palm Creek experience has inspired you to volunteer to help grow pickleball in either your home town or on the road, send me the information and some pictures, for future Blogs!
