    If you had gym class in school, the teacher probably told you there are life lessons to be learned from playing sports. You learn how to succeed or fail with grace, the value of humility, the benefits of sharing, how to build your confidence, and so on. (Although, what getting hit in the face with a dodgeball is supposed to teach, other than pain, is hard to say.)

    What about money? Does the ability of sports to impart knowledge extend to investing? In the game of pickleball, it just might.

    How the Game Got Its Name: Pickleball is an
    unusual name for the sport we all love so we wanted to let some of the families
    who were actually there tell the story for themselves of how the game got its
    name. Travel with us now back to Bainbridge Island once again for this fun
    episode of Pickleball 411 and learn from founder Barney McCallum the story
    behind how the game got its name. Also hear first hand from Dick Brown, one of
    the four original men who helped develop the sport, and was actually in the
    room when they came up with the name pickleball.

    In addition to the 5% discount to the customer, APC will also get 5% credited to their account for purchase of pickleball supplies (balls, nets, etc.).

    Thanks very much to Joy Goldberg for her efforts in setting this up and for her continued support to the Club.

    Since the last update, APC continues to evolve, with now over 625 active members!  

    The summer evening league is in full swing at PAL park.  Heat not withstanding, players converge on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, leveraging our permit with the AA county, to play competitive, yet fun games.  Thanks to Ed Woods for coordinating, and Danielle Kaczensky, Ben Torreon, and others for supporting both the league operation, and after play socials. We are especially happy for our members who still have careers, offering a league opportunity that they can take advantage of in the evening. 

    Speaking of AA County, APC has received word that the two tennis courts at Bestgate Park will soon undergo renovation and be lined with four additional pickleball courts!  Stay tuned for more details.  Thanks to Kristin Schwitzer and Frank Quigley for helping nurture along our partnership with the county.  More court capacity for APC is a good thing!

    Based of the support of Nick Passagno, and many APC volunteers, our kids clinics are off to a great start.  Several others are planned with volunteers needed.  This is a great example of APC outreach.  

    Stay tuned to email notifications to sign up for the third edition of the APC ladder league, which plays on Tuesday’s. Our league fills up very quickly.  Sign up on the website begins at 12 noon on August 8, 2019.  

    APC is also starting a new novice/beginner league!  This will enable newer players to play fun and competitive games.  Sign up for this league will commence at 12 noon on August 10, 2019.  

    Permanent lines will soon be painted on basketball court #1 at PIP Moyer.  Thanks to Nick for his continued hard work with the PIP relationship.

    Per the APC bylaws, the board has created a nominating committee to identify candidates for board positions that will need to be filled in 2020.  The board has asked Marshall Steele to chair the committee, with Kristin Schwitzer and Jack Evans as committee members. This committee will commence their activities shortly. 

    The APC website, coordinated by Tom Shupe, is the main location regarding information of the clubs operations.  The site is utilized to conduct surveys, communicate play times and locations, enable registrations for league, clinic, and social events, among other things. You can find contact information for every APC member who provided it. The board posts minutes of all board meetings to establish a new level of transparency, ensuring every club member, who takes the time to review them, understands what is being discussed.  The forums exists to enable Q&A, and comments from members.  

    All the best!

    Tony
