‘Twas a dark and stormy morning…

but we would not be denied! Today was the end-of-season picnic for the SW Metro Pickleball Club’s Summer Ladder League. In spite of a morning of continuous rainfall, a small army descended on Pioneer Park around 1:30 this afternoon, towels in hand, and by 2:30, we were playing pickleball.

After mopping up the courts, a variety of potluck foods were shared, and then we played some pickleball, a rapid-fire “three strikes” last-man-standing rally. The final four (all winning medals) were Mo Ali (silver), Joey Wagner (gold), Keith Randklev (gold), and Cindy Ronin (silver).

Trophies were also awarded to the overall league winners:

Daytime league:

  • Joe Benolken (gold)
  • Dianna St.Aubin (silver)
  • Sandy DeZellar (bronze)

Weekend/evening league:

  • Mo Ali (gold)
  • Howard Greenspan (silver)
  • Amy Lofdahl (bronze)

Congratulations winners!
