The Sun City Grand Pickleball Clubs first PICK-A-LYMPICS is happening this Wednesday, March 28th starting at 1100 with lunch and registration.  The cost is $5 for the lunch and event.  The event and lunch will run until 3:00 PM.

We all know the value of drills to improve our pickleball skills.  However, many people don’t choose to drill because they find them boring, or just prefer to play games.  Making drills fun helps people to not only improve their skills but to add enjoyment, fun, and challenges to motivate them to practice more often.

In our Pick-A-Lympics, every participant will be provided an individual score sheet.  They will take their score sheet from station to station as they rotate through the drills.  At the end of the Pick-A-Lympics, we will be awarding prizes and medals to the top finishers in each of the 4 divisions (men’s novice – 3.0, men’s 3.5+, women’s novice – 3.0, women’s 3.5+).

All participants will start on court 1 and move in order to courts 5,6,2,3,7,11,12,8 and will be finishing on court 4.  Your score sheet will be given to a volunteer to be entered into the system.
Lunch will be a choice of a Cheeseburger or Hot Dog, chips, and a bottle of water.

  • Pinpoint serve
