Newsletter #2023-3, Jul 9

On the Courts   

Sign-up doubles average attendance is about 10 players per day.  Sign-up doubles is on Mon, Wed, and Fri from 10:00 to 11:30 AM.  Email Jerry at to join the group.   

Tuesday drop-in doubles (6-8 PM) attendance is inconsistent as some nights there are not enough for one court.  More players are needed to keep this activity on the schedule.   

The wind screens are not going to be installed this year due to the relatively low wind conditions so far this year.  The effort and expense are not worth it. 

Court Reservations 

Court reservations can be made by emailing by 6:00 PM Sunday.  The maximum court reservation block is 2 hours.  The court schedule is posted weekly on the Club’s website at Info\Events, Lessons and Court Schedule.  The link is at  

Court reservations are not required, but members that have reservations have priority over members that drop in.


Enthusiastic adults and juniors attended the first group lessons on July 3.  The lessons are 1 hour at 11:30 and 6:30 on Mondays until August 7.  This activity marks the return of a Club sponsored lessons program.  

Since the group lessons were full, there have been many requests for private lessons.  Call Charlie Hall-Elwood at 519-807-4291 if you want a private lesson. 


This is a reminder that pickleball designated times are Tues, Thurs and Sat from 8:30-2:30, and Mon and Wed from 6-8 PM.  The most popular time appears to be Saturday.  The Mon and Wed times have never been used.  Pickleball players can’t be bumped by Club members during these times.
