Pickleball "EXPLOSION" in Grand Rapids!

Hi folks,

Here's a link to an article on the front page of the GR Press Sports section in today's paper...thought you might be interested. Thanks to all of you for helping put Pickleball on the map in Grand Rapids. I think we are on the verge of a Pickleball "explosion" in Grand Rapids!

Perfect.


Thanks again to you and Barb, John and Jeanne and all of your volunteers, Ambassadors and otherwise.

There's a great message here for getting Pickleball into the State Games across the US and into the State Games of America.

With competitive players from FL, WA, AZ, TX, OH, IL, IN, and Canada, as well as, the best players in MI, this is a major milestone for making Michigan and the Great Lakes a major destination point for summer Pickleball!

Had a ball,
