Although the weather delayed the start of the newly-constructed Sports Court at the Diamond Lake Yacht Club, it quickly became the center of fun in the summer of 2018! At the Pancake breakfast, the new court was open, and many kids tried out the various games that were available to play on it. A detailed schedule was created, and many members, young and old, enjoyed this new amenity!
Every Wednesday afternoon, experienced Pickleball members gave freely of their time, and expertise, to teach new Pickleball players the rules of the game. By August, a tournament was arranged for all interested players, and the winners were presented the ‘Pickle Award’ during the 80th Anniversary Party!
The Sports Court is available for play whenever it’s not reserved for some type of special event. All the necessary equipment is there in a storage locker on the court. Pickleball is considered one of the fastest growing sports in the country, but you can also play volleyball, basketball, and soccer on this new court. Everyone is welcome, so plan to join in the fun this summer!
