Maryland Senior Olympics

Georgia Billger and Robert Parker won Gold yesterday at The Maryland Senior Olympics.
Georgia was instrumental in bringing pickleball to Delaware.  When she played on a volleyball team
At the Delaware Senior Olympics in about 2007 a pickleball court was set up for people to try.  Georgia tried it
And liked it, but didn’t think any more about it until a friend played pickleball at the Villages in Florida and told Georgia
That she wanted to see if the YMCA would let them set up a court. They set up a court at the Y and soon moved to the
Tennis courts at the Lewes Canal.  Georgia says at one time she probably knew and taught everyone who played pickleball in 
Sussex County.  Congratulations to Georgia and Robert!

Playtime Scheduler

Over the last couple of years, Www.Playtimescheduler.com has become the unofficial go-to for FSPC members and others to coordinate games here in Sussex County.  Playtimescheduler.com allows you to post a game and include time, location, and level of play.  If you want to coordinate a private game, you can invite friends… find a pickup game, no problem, or you just may want to watch others who play at a higher level in the hopes that you might learn a few tricks for yourself.  It has become a very useful tool to find games and I would encourage our members to use it as well.
