    Inadvertently omitted the Thursday 3.5 results in yesterday's posting, but here it is now!  Hard fought match but the team of John D'Angelo & Joe McDonnell successfully withstood comeback attempts by Robyn Frye & Don Greenwald for a final of 15 - 9.


    2.5 Tuesday - Really close match all the way!  Jeff Phelps and Steve Johnston edged out Dawnell Muecke and Dave Cottongim 16 - 14.  Lots of fans took advantage of the new tables and shade to watch.

    3.5 Tuesday - A great match with Andy Smith & Tony Maunus vs. Dave Chasan & Ron Burgess, with Dave Canaan refereeing.  Dave and Ron got out to 7-2 lead. Ron was called for a foot fault! Andy and Tony then scored 4 quick points.  At 10-6, a 12 hit rally!  A successful lob by Dave made the score 13-7.  Lots of slams, dinks, third shot drops, 5 changes of serve without a point and suddenly it's tied 14-14.  Andy & Tony dug deep, scored 2, won 16-14.  WOW!




    2.5 Wednesday - Another super close and exciting Championship match, featuring the teams of Rho Densmore and Reed Spangler vs. Susie Jarvis and Bob Soto, with Janyce Waldbaum as referee.  Susie and Bob jumped out to a big lead but Rho and Reed fought back with outstanding plays by both teams.  Final result:  a very close    16 - 14 win for Rho and Reed. 




    4.0+ Wednesday - A hard fought match between Ryan Sirakis & Keith Maland vs. Brek Peterson and Chuck Ring as Ryan and Keith sailed to an 11-1 lead.  But Brek and Chuck shifted into overdrive and made a great effort at a comeback.  In the end, Ryan and Keith prevailed 15 - 11.

    3.0 Friday - The wind seems to have been the ultimate winner in this match between Lorraine Segala & Keith Spreuer vs. Kip Maroste & Rick Merring.  Lorraine and Keith were dominating with the wind at their backs.  Then, side change!!  Suddenly points are going to Kip and Rick.  Lorraine and Keith settled in and withstood the challenge for a 15 - 13 victory.

    3.0 Monday - Because of Memorial Day, this match was held this week, allowing Kip Maroste the opportunity for another Championship match.  It was Kip & Dave Newhard vs. Bob Fleckenstein & Tom Montano.  It was a tough match, with some great rallies, but things just didn't go Bob & Tony's way.  Kip & Dave prevailed 15-3.

    Who’s Your Dinker? ran smoothly on March 16th. The 34 players who came to dink, dodge and dribble had a great time in the 4 round robin divisions. Courts 1-8 were used and the event was done about noon. Tom Ghezzi got a great group of volunteers to help with player check-in, desk operations, court set-up, score sheet running, cheering and clean-up. Thanks to this great group!

    Who took top honors you ask? All divisions were co-ed (two gals, two guys or one of each per team) and open age so the only difference was the skill rating.

    Coed doubles 2.5

    First place: Lorraine Segala and Keith Spreuer

    Second place: Terri and Ralph Silveria

    Third place: Maureen Gaughan and Robert Dodaro

    Coed doubles 3.0-3.25

    First place: Caroline Altamir and Gayle Stevens

    Second place: Jane Perry and Jason Hoover

    Third place: Terry Grenier and Don Buckley

    Coed doubles 3.-3.5

    First place: Connie and Larry Cloud

    Second place: Chris Dokos and Chris Skoczylas

    Third place: Shelli Kinkade and Duane Basore

    Coed doubles 3.5 and Above

    First place: Brek Peterson and Dakoda Peterson

    Second place: Andrew Buskey and Zack Chamberlin

    Third place: Cynthia and Barry Lumley

    Full results are available at https://pickleballbrackets.com/ptd.aspx?eid=bc7a87f7-97f3-4890-9de1-1a7b559f435b.

    Congrats to all the players and thank you for helping us raise over $700 toward more courts for everyone to enjoy.

    Exciting times.....some of you have noticed a large contingent of Jr's on Friday afternoons.  The parents have asked PPA to make it official, and we've made it official.  They will be using courts 1-4 starting 3:30 to 5:00 pm on Fridays.  If the Jr program grows the way the rest of the club has grown......we'll need MORE courts....keep watching, I'll keep you in the know!
