Sunny skies, no wind, Santa Claus (Paul Hauser), his elf (Linda Olsen), and 72 players made a memorable Christmas round robin. After six games, players and nonplayers enjoyed a pizza and salad lunch topped off with abundant desserts. The courts were decorated by the Social Committee, and a group of elves created a string of festive pickleballs and lights, which were strung around a tree.
Prizes were given out, including a 90-minute private lesson for up to four people with Gary Quantz.
The next pickleball event will be the 10th Anniversary Celebration of the opening of the pickleball courts on Jan. 20.
