Hey, PB er’s . This is Virginia, I found this article really significant as it helped me put in perspective an experience with a BULLY in Warfield. We had a really fun games group of about 30 folks going strong until Bully joined. Within six months our activity was down to four, the Bully and three more, playing bridge.
I did what everyone else did, when she attacked me by implying that I was cheating I quit the activity, furious. In retrospect I am mad at myself for “being polite” and not taking her on. This article has some good tips on how to do so in a constructive and civilized way. I am optimistic that we will protect our wonderful Pickle Ball group from any similar distructive behaviours. So Thanks, Carrie, for passing this on to all.
Safe journey, Snow Birds, I look forward to seeing the rest of you on the courts. Virginia
