What, meet a Playmate?…………..

No, it’s not a Hugh Hefner affair at the “Mansion.” It’s the unveiling of the latest in pickleball machines, the Playmate.  You are invited for a demonstration of the machine that can enhance your pickleball game. Next Saturday morning at 9am sharp you’ll have a chance to learn how to manage the Playmate so, when you’re ready for a workout, you’ll be in command.  It’s next Saturday at 9am when you’ll meet the Playmate:

Sexy?

You were there? …Where??

Geeeez! I looked hard to find the likes of Indian Ridge pickleballers at the recent photo op promotional for the National Championships that begins play at the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens next week.  A bunch of us were there, for sure, at the invite of our own Andrea Rifkin and Fred Hartzman. But it’s hard to pick them out in the produced video (maybe Jim Gilford? maybe not). The just-released video is viewable by clicking below. It’s well done and interesting, and you may spot one of our guys (if you do, send us a comment).

See you on the courts.

Have a look. Find a Ridge pickleballer?

Change is again in the air……….

Folks,

To beat the heat, we had pickleball Open Play at 8:30 or 9am on Tuesdays and Thursdays the last two weeks. Now that the heat has lessened, we’ll be going back to the usual times of 4-6pm on Tuesday and Thursday each week, with the Saturday and Sunday times staying at 9-11am for the season.  With the nearby National Championships getting underway soon, the enthusiasm for the game is increasing, so let’s get to the courts.

OPEN PLAY TIMES:

TUESDAY & THURSDAY AFTERNOONS @ 4-6PM

SATURDAY & SUNDAY MORNINGS  @ 9-11AM 

Video at the Gardens……

Folks,  Don’t forget about Wednesday’s “promo” at the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens. If you haven’t let the “powers that be” know you’re coming, please do so by clicking the link below and sending an email. See you there. 

Wow! Maybe a star or two will be born this coming Wednesday. How come? Well, we Indian Ridge pickleballers have been invited to play at the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens this coming Wednesday, 10/10, from 9am until ….we drop. And it’s for free, but there’s a hitch. We are likely to be video recorded to promote the USAPA National Championships that are being held at the Gardens early next month. We know, we know, you are a shy sort, but maybe this once, wearing your best pickleball attire and smiling bigtime, you’ll get through it.

So, rising star, if you can make it to the Gardens next Wednesday at 9am, you’ll get to play and be seen nationally. All you need do is let us know you’ll be there by clicking on the link below and emailing your name (s) to the “powers that be.” Then, we’ll see you on this grand stage.

I’ll be at the Gardens next Wednesday.
