Sunday Pickleball Continues

A total of 26 players attended the 1st Sunday Session, including five from the Cottonwood area; two from Clarkdale and a visiting couple from Michigan.  Two new players joined the roster and the remainder of the players were regulars.
(EDIT added 8 AM, May 19) -- Camp Verde Pickleball Sunday Sessions are now well established. Play is now from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM in the Community Center Gym.)

McCulla & Parsons
Sunday Indoor Pickleball has arrived! The 2 hour sessions of drop-in pickleball have been successfully conducted from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM, beginning Sunday, January 22 and continuing through Spring in the Camp Verde Community Center Gym.

Three regulation indoor courts are set up and typically kept fully occupied for the entire 120 minute session.  There is no fee to play.  Paddles and balls are available to use.

We created a Kiddie Kort on the gym's old performing stage are.  During winter on any given Sunday, there were usually at least 4 children enjoying the Kiddie Kort.  During Spring Summer and Fall, the Kiddie Kort will only be set up "on demand". Typical Sunday attendance during the winter averaged around 24 players.  Current Spring usage is less but still offers enough players for some good pickleball action.

The January 22nd Camp Verde Pickleball Sunday Session was an experiment to see if there would be any interest with Camp Verde and Verde Valley pickleball players. Interest shown was a resounding success so the Sunday Sessions will continue. Many THANKS to Jerry P. for his volunteer to help cover future Sunday Sessions.

Camp Verde Pickleball volunteer coordinator John Parsons and Susun McCulla have been  delighted with the Sunday Sessions so far.  Parsons & McCulla's last  Sunday Session was April 30.  Volunteers Bobby and Sandy are available to carry the Sunday sessions forward through the Spring, Summer and Fall until we return in early November 2017.

We are currently using the standard paddle line up for player rotation through each court as it opens and becomes available.
