Hi Everyone 
We have a new location and new times for our indoor season in Bloomfield. A shift in the luncheon hours at Andover changed the availability of the fieldhouse at the times we had used last season and as it had been published in the parks and rec schedule for this season.
All sessions will be held at Bloomfield Lahser High School on Lahser Rd, 1/2 mile north of Long Lake Rd. We will have a daytime session on Tuesday beginning October 12 and a daytime session Wednesday beginning October 13. Each will begin at 11:00 and end at 1:00. We have added a session on Thursday evening beginning at 7:00 PM and ending 9:00 PM.
All sessions will have the drop-in format. Orientation for new players will be available at all sessions. Also, at all sessions there is court space to accommodate "graded play". In graded play an attempt is made to have all players play with players of similar skill level. Pickleball is now into its fourth year in Oakland County. Players' skills and understanding of strategies has improved dramatically. One of the growth challenges of Pickleball has been the availability of sites where new players can learn at a comfortable level, intermediates can have fun competing comfortably, and advanced skilled players can fine tune and compete in preparation for tournament and advanced ladder play.
The cost for all sessions will remain at $3.00 per session. All proceeds are used to provide and maintain adequate balls, paddles for new players, and the net systems for the eight courts. The remainder is given to the Bloomfield Parks and Recreation department.
It will be fun seeing everyone again and welcoming others checking us out for the first time. See y'all in October. Email me with your thoughts about any part of the contents in this letter.
