We Did It!
We reached a milestone of 500 members in the Western Slope Pickleball Club. The most we achieved was in 2020 with 381 members. It just shows how fast the sport of pickleball is growing in the Grand Valley. Plus, who can say NO to our amazing, lovable (albeit pushy) membership director, George Gerson!
