I am super excited to share the news with you all that the YMCA/JCC in Sylvania will be offering Pickleball for their 8 week Summer Session. This will
be a great opportunity for anyone in our group that prefers the indoor surface
and does want to deal with the summer temperatures. We will continue our
outdoor play in Rossford and will also be offering this Saturday indoor play at
the YMCA/JCC. It is our hope to also have a Fall and Winter Session available
at the YMCA/JCC and eventually branch out to the other locations.
Here are the details for the Summer Session:
Date: JUNE 20-AUG 13 SUMMER 8 WEEK SESSION
Where: Sylvania YMCA/JCC ( 6465 Sylvania Ave. , Sylvania , OH 43560
When : Saturday play time is from 9:00am-12:00pm If you would like to participate, you must register and pay for the entire 8 week session. The price is $20 for MAX MEMBERS and $35 for ASSOCIATE MEMBERS. ($2.50 per play for Max Members and approx $4.00 per play for Associate Members)
Registration FOR PLAY BEGINS JUNE 6TH AND IF YOUR ARE A YMCA MEMBER YOU CAN REGISTER ON LINE, ONCE YOU JOIN AT http://www.ymcatoledo.org/
One change from the previous session at the YMCA/JCC is that we will all be
required to pay for either a Max Membership (This is a full-privilege membership that entitles you to use any branch of the YMCA and JCC of Greater Toledo – they offer a flexible membership menu to “build your own membership” – Individual $45.50/month, add a spouse $10.00/month, add a child $10.00/month) or an Associate Membership (For those who only want to participate in classes – Family $60 per year, Individual
$45.00 per year). For those of you who are Seniors 62+, there is a 15% discount available.
If you would like to participate in the league and your are not a member, please call or email John Warnke, phone 419-885-4485, firstname.lastname@example.org. John is the Membership Sales Manager and is super helpful. Also, the YMCA/JCC partners with a long list of local businesses and there can be significant discounts available if you work for any business on their list. I have already spoken with John and he has shared with me that he is willing to waive the “Joiner Fee” for any new members from our Toledo Pickleball group. I have USAPA business cards that he said he would accept as proof, please contact me if you are interested in joining and need a card.
I realize this is a lengthy post with a wealth of information. Please don’t
hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions. It is my hope to
continue to partner with the YMCA of Greater Toledo to help grow Pickleball in the area. They have a great new sports manager, Angela Pullings. She has expressed her commitment to working with us and helping us meet our goal. By the way, she actually gave Pickleball a try this past weekend at the open house and I believe we have a new convert! If you play in the session, please make sure to thank Angie for all of her support and hard work!
