Labor Day Fun

We had 12 people and 3 courts at Riverside Tennis Center (RTC) on Labor Day. We did a mixed doubles “keeper of courts” format where winners move up and losers move down and pairs split each time. It was so much fun!

I started on the bottom court for the first game but then pretty much bounced back and forth between the top two courts after that. Pretty much the only times I lost was when I played against Jamie. He didn’t lose any games at all that day. Basically I would win in middle court and move up. I’d play with Jamie and we would win so I’d stay. Then the next game I’d play against Jamie with the guy from the team moving up and then we would lose. I’d play on middle court with a new partner, win and move up, and the cycle basically repeated over again.

The highlight of the day for me were my two ATPs (Around the Post). Jamie had a good in between the legs one too when we were playing together. It was a great pickleball day for me.

Oh, I took a selfie with Gary Miller because we rarely ever get to play together. He wasn’t even originally playing with us but Ryan Wolfe, who Jen T organized the pickleball play for, backed out last minute. We were scrambling to get a 12th and, thankfully, Gary was able to fill in.

Fun fact: This is also the day I met Alex Silcock in real life for the first time ever. She’s a local fitness and lifestyle guru that I follow on Facebook. Naturally, I had to get a photo with her. I totally felt like a midget.

After pickleball, Brooke, Karen, and I met Brian at the downtown Meddy’s for lunch. I’m familiar with their food but it was my first time at that location. Here are some pictures of our food.

They have a super cute patio with a fireplace (which wasn’t on that day because it was a nice day) and a wooden Wichita flag hanging above it. We thought the flag decor was cool so we had to get a picture with it. We are so silly!

Anyway, it was the perfect start to the week! Until next time. GNG.
