On Oct. 31, PebbleCreek pickleball players celebrated Halloween at the courts. Players dressed up in costume and decorated the common areas with blow-up ghosts and pumpkins. Everyone had fun as they tried to guess who was behind the mask.

Comments heard on the court:

* “We are fun people and love to dress up for Halloween!”

* “This year I was a ballerina. I wore my fanciest tutu!”

* “I love seeing everyone in costume. And, it is so great that we carry on our annual tradition!”

* “Our members are so creative. We had clowns, flamingos, and of course, Count Dracula!”
