Pickleball Players Give Thanks

Cynthia Schwartz

On Thanksgiving Day, a group of players gathered together on the PebbleCreek Pickleball courts to play and give thanks for having great friends. Dressed as turkeys (some cooked and some still with feathers), Pilgrims, and football players, these ladies enjoyed a few hours of friendly pickleball games. “Stay out of the kitchen,” was heard on the courts along with a few “gobble, gobbles.”

Linda Krueger commented, “I’m thankful for pickleball because I have met so many great friends and can burn up calories before we eat—all while having fun!” Ellen Enright said, “We’re just a group of pickleball ladies who wanted to get together and have a little fun. We all have so much to be thankful for and thought it’d be a nice kick off to the holiday shared with friends. Find your flame and keep it lit.”

Ellie Love said, “I am thankful for the friends I have met through pickleball and that we all are healthy and able to be so active together!”

Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports, especially in active adult communities. The PebbleCreek Pickleball Club (PCPB) has more than 1,500 members and is one of the largest clubs in the United States. If you are interested in learning how to play, sign up for the Novice Player Development Program. The program is free and the PCPB will loan you paddles and will supply the balls.
