From the Pickleball Community
Arvada pickleball players won the Golden Tennis Shoe Award for the largest team at the Arvada Ralston House .5k Endurance Challenge. Seventy-one generous people registered with the Picklebll Group. A big thanks to all of you! The funds raised at the race today will help abused kids and their families. Pickle peeps are the best! Look for the golden shoe at the outdoor courts.

Arvada Pickleball Players

News & Updates
Lots of new faces on the courts, lots of great familiar faces, lots of pickleball friends and lots of really excited new players. As always, I am grateful to have the opportunity to meet and play with soooo many wonderful folks and to introduce this crazy sport to new players. Thanks to ALL of you who take the time to show others what a great time we have playing pickleball. Just a few minutes of your time gives a new player such a great start to enjoying a sport that will last a lifetime and a sport that has definitely shown to improve balance, agility and reaction time. Pickleball is a game that is easy to learn except for a "few" confusing things like the non-volley zone, the third shot drop and the two bounce rules - if you could keep helping those "new" folks with those "things" it would be so beneficial to them ...and well yes, ..the scoring (which is the least important thing to them in the beginning and the very most confusing!!!)
For you Lakewood players - Sara Livingston who was my first (and still is) pickleball supporter as I attempted to give pickleball a start in the metro area in 2006 has a wonderful cause she supports called the Friends of Paha. This organization is a non-profit that raises money to support Camp Paha for children and young adults with disabilities. This camp is life-changing for campers and their families as they learn to build life skills, independence, friendships and have fun in a safe and nurturing environment. The camp is supported and run by the City of Lakewood. The fundraiser which Sara has asked me to mention is July 22 from 4:30 - 7:00 at the Lakewood Cultural Center at 470 S. Allison Way. - food and dinks (oops that should be drinks!!) a silent auction and more are included with your ticket. I do know that this has nothing to do with pickleball but Sara has had so much to do with pickleball and has supported us even when I didn't know we needed support!!! We are so fortunate to be able to enjoy the physical part of our lives and I hope you will consider helping this great organization - contact info: 303-987-7146 or email@example.com.
