I am so excited to share the great news with you all that we have been able to work with the West Toledo YMCA and they will be offering Indoor Morning and Evening Pickleball play times for the 8 week Fall Session II starting Oct 24-Dec 18, 2011. The West YMCA is a very nice new facility with a beautiful new gym. Depending on the level of participation, there is space to set up 6 Pickleball courts! This is a great opportunity at this location and the management is very open to Pickleball. They have expressed interest in partnering with us in many different ways including future indoor tournaments.
Here is the detailed information regarding the 8 Week Fall II Session:

Also, for those of you who do not have indoor balls. I will have white JUGS™ Bulldog indoor pickleballs available for purchase for $2.oo per ball.
OPEN HOUSE Details: Sunday, September 25, 2011 from 3-5pm. The purpose of the open house will be to introduce Pickleball to any interested West YMCA members/non-members as well as the Adult Sports Coordinators from the other locations. There will also be an opportunity for early registration for the Fall II Session. So please consider attending this open house as well as bringing a few new players that might be interested in attending the session.
I will also be in need of a core group of about 8 players to help make teams of 4 to demo the game. Please contact me if you would like to be 1 of the 8.
I want to thank all of you in advance for all the individual efforts you make to advance and grow the game of Pickleball in the Toledo area. A big thank you to Sandy Kushma for going along to the meeting with me at the West YMCA to help get this all set up!
I am looking forward to seeing many of you at the Open House and during the 8 week session. The prices are very affordable and I hope that many of you will sign up for the Morning and Evening play times!
