The first Runnin for Rhett Elk Grove Pickleball Classic is now under way.  It is an exciting day and it is hard to believe that just a few short years ago, our friend Brian Guzman, pickleball ambassador extraordinaire, introduced this sport to our running group.  How did he have so much patients with us to get us here.

Today features the women's doubles competition, while Saturday and Sunday feature the mixed doubles and men's doubles competition.  We have some great players out there.  Come out and cheer them on and enjoy something from Drewski's Food Truck.  They have some great food!

Hi Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400.  When we found Runnin for Rhett, they changed the direction of my life.  They are a great community of friends now and yes, I play pickleball more than run now, but it is still the same group of great friends. We have been playing pickleball pretty seriously for about 3 years and I think we are just getting started.

Hi Dorie Dillard Austin TX.  The best part is it is all part of the same group.  I still run some and will continue to run, but many of my running friends are my pickleball friends too.  I am partners in men's doubles with one of the founders of Runnin for Rhett, Randy Seevers.  I am lucky!

Hi Kathy Streib...I wish I was playing.  There was just too much on my plate to participate this weekend, but I am volunteering where and when I can.  Today, I was there for a bit and was able to watch a lot of my friends playing.  It was a blast!  I think I will be able to spend even more time there tomorrow.  I am sure you will get even more commentary tomorrow!

Thank you, Kat Palmiotti.  If you start, you may not be able to stop.  🤣  Still, I hope you get a chance to try the game out one of these days.

Good morning, Sheri Sperry - MCNE®.  I am only participating as a spectator this time.  We just had too much on our plate to commit to playing in it.  I am hoping to get a chance to watch some of the games today.  I have a lot of friends playing and it will be fun to watch.

Some people like pickle ball so much, they have a court in their back yards. Pickelball is now on the list of sports for the Huntsman World Senior Games as well, Ray. Perhaps one day, your team will play here!

I am not sure what it takes to make it into the Huntsman Games, but it is on our radar, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! I need a lot bigger backyard if I am ever going to have a court in my backyard.  😉
