Pickleball League at Chicken N Pickle

Posted on October 5, 2019 by under Hobbies, Things to Do.    

While at competing in the pickleball event at the Wichita Corporate Challenge, I made a new friend and signed up for my first ever pickleball league. I met Renee at the WCC and she told me how she joined the women’s doubles pickleball league on Wednesday nights but she didn’t have a partner. We got to talking and I found out that the first night of play was September 11 and it just so happened that I wouldn’t have my Wednesday night Aqua Zumba class at South YMCA anymore after Labor Day so I had Wednesday nights free. I ended up signing up for the league and officially becoming her pickleball league partner for the season that same afternoon. It was quite spontaneous but I’m really glad I did it.

We are now four weeks in to the league — though we’ve only played three times because Koch decided to shut down CNP on one of our league nights so league play was canceled — and I’m really enjoying it. I think the universe brought us together for a reason. If it weren’t for her needing a partner, I probably wouldn’t have joined a league ever because I was pretty indifferent about it. Now I realize how much I’ve been missing out. It’s so much fun!

Here are some pictures from our first night of league…

My teammate/partner Renee is on the left. The other two women are one of the opponents we had that first night, Laurie and Haley (team Haylo). Our team name is Heavy Dinkers. Renee’s coworker Mason suggested it when we were at the WCC that same afternoon at that I signed up.

Here’s another pic of me with Laurie. She is very good.

Brian came out the first night for moral support and took some action shots.

Next time I think I will try to talk him into getting some video because I really want to be able to see what I’m doing.

This league has been super fun. The only downside is Renee has missed a couple of sessions. One was due to a Carrie Underwood concert and the other due to travel. So I’ve had different partners the last couple of times due to subs. I’m really looking forward to this Wednesday because she’s back and we will finally have another opportunity to play together. I’m so excited!

Until then, have a fabulous week. GNG.
