PICKLEBALL MACHINES NOW AVAILABLE FOR CHECKOUT
The two club-owned ball machines will be made available to all members completing a required training session. Please see the procedures below.
Any Pickleball club member interested in using the ball machines must attend a training session to learn safety and operational procedures. Training will be held on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 3pm on court 8. Attendance is required at only one session so pick the date and time more convenient to you. This class will only be held if someone contacts Jeff Duncan at 817 403-0899. Player development instructors previously trained on ball machine operation will not be required to attend another session.
