OUTDOOR PLAY DATES
With the approach of warmer weather, we will try to schedule some outdoor open play dates for all skill levels. Kim Smith and Sadie Reilly will have the courts set up at Manhassett Park on Thursday, March 28th and Friday, March 29th from 9 – 11:30 AM. Manhassett Park is located at 500 Long Branch Avenue in Long Branch. Also, Kim will be setting up the courts under the lights at Victory Park in Rumson from 6 – 9 PM on Saturday, March 30th. No need to register. Just show up. Hopefully Mother Nature will be kind and give us some decent weather for these dates.
Also on Saturday (3/30), located across the street from Victory Park, Victory Tavern will be featuring the music of Kul d’Sack from 8 – 11 PM. MPC member Richard Morris plays in the band. Kim and others will be rolling up the pickleball nets and walking across the street to enjoy Richard’s music and some relaxation. You are invited to join them whether or not you play at Victory Park.

MPC members continue to make hay in Florida. At the Halpatiokee Tournament last weekend in Stuart, Florida, it was an all MPC finals match that pitted Chip Rodgers and his partner, Linda Horst, against Tom Zapcic and Missy Potter. Chip and Linda edged out Tom and Missy to take the gold medal, but Tom and Missy received a well-deserved Silver. Congratulations to all for keeping Monmouth Pickleball Club in the Florida pickleball headlines.
