These are two words that are used in many ways to describe our sport of Pickleball and how we invite people to come to it and enjoy the benefits of fun , social and exercise. These are the three- in – one benefits of regular exercise with this new, fast paced and fast growing sport.
We have seen on google many different ways to verbalize the same idea – a play and learn, an eight hour teaching session free , a shootout free, free lessons, lessons for a small fee etc.
Today, Sept 30th, has been designated Sports Day in Canada . What a wonderful opportunity for many across our great country to get involved in a participaction event , a TRY ME in their local neighbourhood to recruit some new players for their local program which , if it is drop – in , needs around 10 X the number of players that are on the court at any given time. So ten courts = 100 players per playtime.
This is a daunting number especially for new , beginning programs . One such in BC is Edmunds Rec Center which has seven playtimes per week and after six months ( granted only recently have they had regular instruction ) have only filled about half of their courts.
Please see below how another Rec center , Walnut grove has co-operatively joined a few other sports at a new Event Center in Langley BC to invite many youth and others to come and Try ME in their Gyms with seating for some 500 people. Since it has rained the entire day, this would, in our experience guarantee a good turnout at their event. Surely many who have never heard of Pickleball , never mind ever having tried it will have the opportunity today to Try IT. Kudos to Walnut Grove Rec Center and their
staff and players for putting on this welcoming to all event.
See below the advertising format used to invite the public. May we have many more of the same.
