The manner of voting will be determined soon, but please know that votes will be kept confidential!

Members in active standing will be able to vote in person at the meeting or online prior to the meeting. (Updated 3/3/2020.)

To see who is currently running for the four vacancies that will open up July 1, 2020, please visit our Board Info page.

Tuesday Tips – March 10th

“Di’s Deadly Drops”

Picklepong Deb Harrison brings you – “Di’s Deadly Drops”. Di Bock shows Deb her sharp angle shots off high crosscourt balls from both forehand and backhand. Her goal is to redirect balls at sharp crosscourt angle and make ball bounce twice in NVZ. When correct ball is chosen and executed well it is almost impossible to get the ball back. This is Di’s version of the Nasty Nancy #1. As with any shot, drill and practice are essential for success.
