First Robson Pickleball Traveling League Social

Janet Myrick

On a perfect Friday afternoon, 60 members of our Robson Pickleball Team of Sun Lakes traveled to Pebblecreek in Goodyear for a fun pickleball social. Players playing in this social were from the three Sun Lakes communities. We had two teams of each level: 4.5 and above; 4.0; 3.5, 3.0, 2.5 men, women and mixed teams. Pebblecreek has 1,250 pickleball players. We played on 10 of their 20 pickleball courts.

The event was very well organized and Pebblecreek provided hot dogs, drinks, fruit and snacks. Everyone had a great time.

Our next event will be against Saddlebrook Ranch on January 14. We will be sending out emails to those who have showed interest in playing in our traveling team social the middle of December to see who will be available. These socials give players all the experience of playing tournament play but in a fun environment.

Thank you to those captains that organized the teams. They were Sheila Parkinson; Ron and Mary Kent; Ray Schwimmer; Janet Myrick and Arthur Gercken. A big thank you goes to the 60 players who traveled and played to make this event a success.
