PPPA – WEEKLY EMAIL BLAST

In this week's blast:

 

   NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION

The final New Member Orientation for 2020 will take place on Thursday, September 3, at 4:30 PM at the pavilion at Monument Valley Park Pickleball Court. The goals of the orientation are as follows:

  • To incorporate our new members into play at MVP and the Pickleball community
  • Gain an understanding of how the PPPA organization works and introduce new members to our governing board
  • To sign up for organized playing opportunities which include those with guided instructions to help improve your PB game

Of course, you will also meet other new members!  Anyone who is struggling (new and old) to get connected in our 1,000-member group should come and find the perfect place to join in.  Going forward these orientations will take place on the first Thursday of each month during our outdoor playing season.  Keep your eyes posted on the website calendar for upcoming events.  If you have your name tag, please wear it.

We do request that until Covid restrictions are lifted that you wear a mask and practice social distancing as much as possible during these orientation sessions.

 

If you have any questions, contact Ros Block, Membership Director at blockparty.ros@gmail.com
