Saturday Mixer Today at Mooresville Tennis Center at 1:30 pm
Fifty club members will be headed to the Lake Norman Tennis Center today at 1:30 pm to view an exhibition of some area top players and play in a fun mixer. Head LKN Pickleball trainer Jennifer Butler is in charge and has a great program planned. Club members will play in a fun mixer and will be playing against teams of similar skill. Lake Norman Tennis Center has extended a FREE initiation fee until the end of March and is offering club memberships for just $50.00 per month. Watch for videos and pics on our Facebook Page. Special thanks to Jenny as she has spent a lot of time putting this together.
LKN Club Branding LOGO Finalized
Club member Brenda Sepanek, who is a graphic artist, has volunteered to develop a team brand or logo and reports that she is almost finished. The activities committee saw some samples and voted on a design and ball color for the artwork. We will be releasing the final product soon. Special thanks to Brenda for her volunteerism and support of our club.
Play Time Scheduler – As you know, our Club no longer supports or uses Play Time Scheduler. However, it is a perfect tool for our members to schedule games and keep in touch. The ability to send emails to the group is a major plus. The application is free and can be found at https://playtimescheduler.com/
Activities Committee Zoom Call Coming Soon
Attention Activities Committee Members – I would like to conduct a Zoom call later this next week to discuss Spring activities. Please download Zoom which is free. To join the call, you will only have to click a single link. Check Google or download from your Smartphone application store.
Prosperity Athletic Club Update Jenny Butler and I conducted a Zoom call this past week with Jeremy Speicher, Club Owner with some exciting results. Prosperity has agreed to be a strong partner with LKN Pickleball Club and will be hosting special events for our club members. We also discussed forming teams or leagues. As example, Prosperity team members could challenge Lake Norman teams. We hope to host games at local facilities to include the new Holbrook park at Huntersville.
HOLBROOK PARK UPDATE Nothing new to report. Still looking at an April kick off…
