It Was Fun! And, FAST!

Happy 4th, <<First Name>> --

  When we say it's a "Quickie" tournament, we're not messin' around!

  It took just 56 minutes -- start to finish -- to complete today's Third Annual Cove Pickleball Club Clothing Independence Day Quickie Tournament! That's from the start of the briefing until the final words of the results -- a new outdoor record!

  Twenty fun- and freedom-loving players got up early and checked in for the event. We played 5 rounds of games timed to 7 minutes each, with no limit on scores, each game with a randomly-assigned partner and against randomly-assigned opponents. All games started and ended simultaneously, and we kicked off a new round of games just about every 10 minutes -- so things moved right along!

  By 9:10am, before the overnight dew had even burned off the chairs at the Cove pickleball rink, all the competition had ended, and everyone had played exactly 35 minutes of pickleball in the event.

  We're very proud to report that 11 ladies and 9 men turned out for today's games, and just as with the big tournament junket to Club Med in January, the Cove lady players really over-represented! Ladies accounted for four of the top 5 scorers, and swept the top 3!

  Wanna peep some results? Go for it:
  • 1st Place - 53 Points - Roxy B.
  • 2nd Place - 41 Points, and competing in her first-ever tournament of any kind, Fran D.
  • 3rd Place  - 39 points - Pat R.
  Congratulations, ladies! WAY TO PLAY! 

  We want to thank everyone who came out and tried this new "super-Quickie" format today, and we wish everyone a Happy Clothing Independence Day!


  Our group order for those snazzy personalized paddle bands will be closing next weekend, on Saturday, July 9th. We have over a dozen orders in already, but we'd like to get a lot more!

  Because of popular demand, we're opening the orders to ANYONE who's a paid-up member of the Club. If you're not at the Cove right now, we'll mail your band(s) to you when our order comes in!

  Want to get in on the deal? Here's how:

  Figure out a way to get $10 to Yours Truly. You can mail a check, but we'd prefer that you pay online with Stripe. We'll also accept PayPal, Zelle, Cash App, Venmo or Apple Pay Cash. Use for everything else, or -- PREFERRED -- click this link at Stripe to pay securely with just a few taps. Note that you can adjust the order quantity with Stripe -- look for the Qty. drop-down arrow just under the product name.

  Then let us know: (a) how many bands you want; (b) what COLOR you want for each band, and; (c) what you want your band to read, front and back. Email this info to

  We'll confirm your order and and mail it out to you when our order is received, probably in late July.

  Our next semi-organized pickleball event at beautiful Cypress Cove very well may be the FIRST event to be held on the (we hope) newly resurfaced and repainted courts! Hopefully the refresh work that is slated to be done in mid-August will be complete by then, and we'll all be able to enjoy that delicious "new court smell" for our Labor Day Quickie tournament.

  We're going to pencil it in for Labor Day -- Monday, September 5, 2022, starting at 8:30am sharp. Watch your Inbox for full details coming in August.

  See you on the courts!
