BC PICKLEBALL GOES TO THE CITY OF LANGLEY AND THE NEW TIMMS COMMUNITY CENTER
A DOUBLE ASSIGNMENT
The students were keen to learn, very respectful, and willing if not excited to compete. At the final day , the 29th,we hosted a tournament – perhaps their first in their lives – and all had fun doing it !
A gold, silver and bronze medal awards were presented.Many students ordered name tags so that when they join the regularly scheduled players , they would know their names right away.
At the same time, as we were already there , the programmer asked if we would take on teaching the city staff to play as a substitute for the coffee and donuts. This presented all ages, some in barefeet, who were keen to learn a new sport. So excited were they with the fun achieved in such a short time, that it was repeated the next week. How good is this, to have the city staff keen on a new sport available right below their offices. Wow.
I would like to thank Brian Sullivan, Bill Macgregor, John and Berryl Kusch and especially Chiristine Daum programmer for their invaluable help in this teaching effort. We , at BC pickleball wish Timms the greatest success in their new Rec center with city hall and the Mayor’s office located in the building.
Yours in Sport and Health,
