Last week we held an “Introduction to Pickleball” demo at Jumbo Evans Tennis Facility in Spring Branch, Texas. People participating in the demo were Jo Honeycutt (number 2 female SSIPA player in the women’s 60-64 bracket), Larry Honeycutt (number 6 player in the SSIPA men’s 75-79 bracket), Donna Hansen and Greg Hansen.
This is a video (less than 30 seconds long) of one of the points we played. Note how Jo and Donna move so well together, how Jo tracked down what was a great lob (if I must say so myself), and how everyone is in the “ready position.” Note, too, the agony at the end of the point where I miss what was the easiest shot of them all.
Thanks to Kendall Murray for setting up the demo and for the video.
We are working out the details for possible holding a tournament at the park. More information to follow.
