NEW Schedule! Rochester Pickleball Club! Growing! Thriving!

"Pat Calvin at the Rochester Community Schools Enrichment Department is very supportive of the Rochester Pickleball Club; with Pat's guidance, we have come up with the following response to the rapid growth in the number of players at Adams on Saturdays.

1.)Starting this week, we will have the 3 courts for an extra 1/2 hour - 1:30 - 4:30pm.

2.) We may be able to put up a fourth court starting next week February 6th (if we have an effective way of raising the basketball nets).

3.) Starting on February 6th, we will have two sessions

  • 1:30 - 3:00pm for Beginners and Intermediate Players
  • 3:00- 4:30pm for Intermediate and Advanced Players
    There will be a fee for each session.

To compensate for the shorter sessions, existing and new punch cards will contain 11 punches. The Drop-in fee will stay the same. Pat will update the Rochester Community Schools Enrichment website and send out an email to the Enrichment Program subscribers indicating that we have greater capacity with less wait time.

4.) There are other longer term options for growth that are being investigated. Once they are finalized, we will let you know the details.

For now, please help get the word out to our existing players. This Saturday should be better with some people informally coming early (1:30pm) and others coming later. Next week, the two session structure will be in effect with two skill level options.

Thanks for your ongoing support and feedback. -Dick Manasseri"
