A mini clinic at Torrey Oaks, and the nets go up to finish the courts.
Everyone was ready to play a little pickleball this morning, but we wanted to make sure the courts were completely dryso we headed up to Torrey Oaks to play. Rich had mentioned that he would be setting up a video and doing a clinic here in the not too distant future. Harry and Karen are leaving the park on Thursday and Keith and Marie will follow on Sunday - so they wanted the chance to get a little training before they left. Rich gave them the video (21 Clinics by Coach MO) to watch. Marie came back the next morning and asked when Rich could do his clinic and Monday seemed to be the best day.
We arrived at Torrey Oaks just after 8:00am, and Richard, one of the Torrey Oaks residents came over to join in on the training. The class lasted about 2 hours and Rich left the group with several drills to work on to improve their games.

Here's a picture of all the students with their 'teacher' for the day. Afterwards, despite the winds (and it was VERY VERY windy; definately a bad hair day) - we played a few games to practice what we learned and then headed back to PR.
