The Robson Ranch Pickleball Club continues to grow at an astonishing rate. Record numbers are registering for the Pickleball Academy. Some of the increased interest may be due to the current expansion of courts to 16. The January academy set a record with 16 new students in the program. Professors Dr. Jim and Cassie Richardson (honorary doctorates in Pickleball) led the class. Dr. Katie Brown jumped in to assist the instruction with such a large group. Jim, Cassie and Katie are top players and instructors in the Pickleball Club. The academy is for beginning new players and teaches the basics of pickleball including strokes, rules, scoring and basic strategy. After completing the academy, graduates will feel comfortable to begin play both indoors and outdoors. To register for the academy go the club website at www.rrdpc.com. Come out and get some exercise, laugh a lot and meet over 400 new friends!
