Weekly Update – Monday December 9

Weekly Clinics!

Truckee Meadows Pickleball Club was initially built off of weekly clinics that both introduced the game to new people and helped people become better players quickly so the games became much more fun.

Find out more about TMPC Weekly Clinics here!

TMPC Annual Members Banquet

Save the date and RSVP for the TMPC Annual Members Banquet which will be Saturday January 4th.  Delicious Italian food will be featured this year and we will have a resolution board and karaoke!

All members are invited at no cost! Guests are always welcome but will be asked to pay $15 prior to the event to cover part of the food costs.

RSVP by Saturday December 28th so we can have a plate ready for you!

By Laws Review

Did you know that TMPC has been an organized club for four years. The original By Laws were voted on July 20, 2015.

Recently, your board has received input from some board members and members of a few laws that perhaps could be updated with approval.

We are asking each TMPC member to review the current by laws and suggest any changes that would benefit the club and it’s members.

A couple of suggestions received so far include:

  • Allow multi year memberships (at a discount or not?)
  • Twelve month memberships starting on date of membership and not run July 1 to June 30.
  • Change the second degree of consanguinity  to first degree of cosanguinity for board members.
  • Online voting for board positions rather than mandatory attendance for general elections.

If you have suggestions for By Laws changes, please submit them by emailing the club here:  TruckeeMeadowsPickleballClub

TMPC Members Give Big on Warm Goodies Day

250+ Pieces of Clothing Donated!

Big thanks to all the members who came and played and donated warm clothing for kids at Boys & Girls Club at our Warm Goodies event today.

Big thanks to Judy Wasson for “womanning” the white board for a fun and efficient new way to keep the courts filled and players mixing it up! Sorry I didn’t get a picture of Judy with dry erase pen ready to fill in players.

And as always, thanks to the board members and all the members who stepped up to help run this fun event. TMPC has great members!

Thanks again members for another wonderful event.  Hope to see you on the courts soon!

 

Wednesday Warm Goodies Event

ALL MEMBERS WELCOME ON WEDNESDAY

Click on image for large flyer.

Over 50 members have signed up for TMPC’s next Members Only event. Thanks to all the members who have signed up.  *Drop in members welcome, too! *

Check in will be at 9:00 am and play will continue to noon.

Please remember to bring your warm goodies to donate for B&G Club kids!

NEW FORMAT FOR PLAY!

We will be using a new to TMPC format recommended from members Judy Wasson and Trish Kirsch who have used the “white boards” in other pickleball areas.

Click on image for larger image.
Each square is for a group of 4 players who will play together.

When you want to play, enter your name in the first empty or partially filled box. If a box is full, write your name in the next available box.


When 4 players fill a box and the players listed above have finished their game, you should occupy the available court as quickly as possible. Please cross out your completed box before playing your game.


When you finish your game, you again list your name in the next available box, etc.


If you want to play with specific people (4 friends) you may enter all your names in the box only if they ARE NOT playing at that time and are present. Skip to the next available box to enter all 4 names together so that those waiting before you can play ahead of you.


Do not begin playing if the box above you is not filled in. The players in that box were there before you, so help them find players and wait your turn.


If no one else is there to play, remember to be kind and fill in the blanks with your name.


If there aren't enough players to fill in the boxes, everyone should always mix in with one another.

*All members are welcome to drop in and play but please bring a piece for two of kids’ warm clothing to donate to kids at the Boys & Girls Club.

Thank you Sheri and Thank you to your excellent team!!! The day was great fun and the wind made it very challenging.   So many fun moments because of the wind.

For Example:  
* I served the ball and it was returned into the kitchen but the wind caught the ball and it went back over the net to the other side before I could even touch it!!
** Also, I have never had serves land in the kitchen!!!

The most fun was meeting so many new people and playing with so many great partners.  

Thank you to everyone for such a "Memorable Tournament."
