MSO Pickleball Welcomes FANS & REFS By Connie Schultz

Hi Macomb Picklers,
If you are interested in going to the OPC to watch the Pickleball Senior Olympics, here is some information about it. It is free to go in and watch. If you have any further questions, I will try to get answers for you, or you may email Becky Ridky at becky_ridky@opcseniorcenter.org .

  • The tournament will begin on Monday, January 31st with Mixed Doubles.
  • Tuesday, February 1st will be Men’s and Women’s Singles
  • Wednesday, February 2nd will be Men’s and Women’s Doubles.

The competition will start around 8 a.m. and go late into the afternoon.

Also, for those of you that might be interested in being a ref, there are two mandatory referee clinics. All the referees must attend one of the two clinics. They are on Wednesday, January 19th from 2-3pm and Friday, January 21st from 8-9am at the OPC Gym.

The OPC is located at 650 Letica Drive in Rochester. Heading west, 24 Mile Road turns into Parkdale when you pass Dequindre. Make a left at the next light which is Letica. It’s easy to get there. So if you get a chance, go watch. You may some day soon want to play in a tournament at the OPC.
See you soon.

Connie Schultz
