Did you know that TMPC works in conjunction with City of Reno to organize play at a number of the facilities in the Truckee Meadows area.
Some of our TMPC members are also part time City of Reno employees working as facility monitors. Without these member/employees, the City of Reno would be hard pressed to offer as much pickleball as they do.
Be sure to thank your facility monitors!
UPDATE: The club has been receiving a lot of feedback on the new format at Plumas Gym. Thank you for your feedback and I will be gathering all the feedback and providing it to the board at the next board meeting. You are always welcome to provide comments and suggestions to TruckeeMeadowsPickleballClub@gmail.com. Carol Amos – TMPC Board Member and web gal
Truckee Meadows Boys and Girls Club will be closed for PB play next week due to Washoe County School District’s fall break. The Indoor Courts page has been updated to include all of WCSD’s breaks.
