LOBSTER PICKLEBALL MACHINE RENTAL PROGRAM
The club is happy to bring back the Lobster rental program which is a great resource to use to improve your game through consistent drilling practice. WSPC members who have completed the orientation can reserve the machine for themselves and/or guests. Reservations can be made inside the shed at Lincoln Park. Anyone needing an orientation can contact the Lobster manager, Rob Schoeber, at email@example.com
Cost to rent the Lobster has been reduced to $5 for 1.5 hours! What a deal!

What is a ladder, you ask? In a pickleball ladder league, teams are arranged like rungs of a ladder. Teams on the ladder can challenge one another to a match. As a team wins or loses, the team moves up or down in position on the pickleball ladder. The goal is to be at the top of the ladder.
Indoor Play in Fruita
Fruita Community Rec Center, N. 324 Coulson St., is back to having indoor drop-in pickleball Monday-Thursday 6-11 a.m. There will be two nets set up on the east side of the basketball courts. You do NOT need to sign up in advance to play. Show up anytime during the session. Masks are required to enter/exit facility, but NOT to play.
Winter Play in Palisade
Come wintertime, there will be NO organized, indoor play due to COVID reasons. The players in Palisade will switch to the Onix balls and stay outside for as long as possible. Open play outdoors is 7 day a week at 9 a.m. Start times will change as the weather gets cooler.
