As some of you may have noticed Tami and I have been meeting with Ben at Home Court the last couple of weeks discussing a new program called “Press Play” which is a new program the YMCA was hoping to put into action this year.  The program involved adding pickleball to the Y’s programs focused on “empty nesters”.  Well as it turns out the Y doesn’t have enough time slots to implement this new program.  The good news is during our meetings, Ben finally agreed that to implement any type of additional pickleball programs he would need more courts so we lobbied for two more court for the existing players and because of all our loyal players consistently coming to play week after week we were able to convince him to again check with the floor cover people and his management about taping two new court this year.  This morning (Friday) he said that everyone has agreed to let us tape two more courts this year.  In addition if we keep up our number of players they will paint the courts next year when they refinish the floor.  It is also worth noting that the courts are open from 5am in the morning to noon five days a week so players who work or are maybe younger can come and player from 5am to 8am before work.  I would encourage all our loyal players to stop by Ben’s office and say “Thanks” because this will enable us to expand our club membership, get new players and designate specific courts for 3+ players and beginners.  So now we can really go out and solicit new players throughout the Treasure Vally and know that we have courts available. We will be calling for volunteers for taping next week so come out and help.
