At the beautiful Northern Paddles Club pickleball facility in St. Cloud on September 17, the SW Metro Club won back the Picklebowl trophy by the score of 8 1/2 to 3 1/2. Our friendly rivalry included wonderful and gracious hosts, good food, great fellowship and matches that were very close and competitive despite the final score. Thank you Northern Paddles and great job SW Metro Club!
The Chanhassen Recreation Center called on Southwest Metro Pickleball Club to respond to a request to conduct a clinic for new players. The Director of Faith Formation at Family of Christ Lutheran Church in Chanhassen reached out to the Chanhassen Recreation Center asking for help with providing courts, equipment and instruction to learn the game of Pickleball. The church staff has been trying to build some wellness activities into their staff schedule. The church is located immediately east of the Chanhassen pickleball courts. Staff members have observed Pickleball games when coming and leaving the church.
Southwest Metro Pickleball Club provided a lesson and handouts to nine participants at no cost. A great time was had by all. Please welcome these players to the sport when they show up to play in the future.
