At the Board Study Session last Thursday, the SCOV board resisted the PBC request to restripe Court 4 for exclusive PB use. Instead, they decided to wait for the Hard Court Task Force to complete their work which is supposed to conclude by June 1st. We expressed our support for Pickle ball in our community and the need for more permanent PB courts. We want to continue to cooperate with the PB players as this issue moves forward.

“Tennis is a young man’s game. Until you’re twenty-five, you can play singles. From twenty-five to thirty-five, you should play doubles. I won’t tell you exactly how old I am, but when I played, there were twenty-eight men on the court—just on my side of the net.”  -George Burns
