I first learned about pickleball from my next door neighbor and another friend in Riverdale. I began playing off and on, but found it so enjoyable I began playing regularly and have played for about 3 years now. I play at Mt. Ogden Park in the summer time, Marshal White in the winter time and Riverdale whenever possible. The very best perk about playing is the great players and friends I have made along the way. I look forward to playing at all the venues in Northern Utah in the future. The OPA activities have been great, they provide ways to improve your game and  opportunities to learn skill and would like to see them continue in the future, that is one reason I have volunteered to serve on the board. I hope to see all my new friends come out to play and look forward to meeting many more at our future events. As with most of you, I absolutely love pickleball and can’t get enough.

See you on the courts!

This sport has been nothing short of amazing for me. I have always been involved in some type of hobby or sport, from dance to roller derby to aerial fitness.I found myself in a hobby lull about 2 years ago when my sister and dad invited me one Sunday morning to Monroe park to learn to play Pickleball and boom! I fell in love! We then recruited my other sister who has become a great partner for me in tournaments. It’s a family affair and getting to share something with my Dad has been so great! I have gained so many new friends and play where ever I can. Indoor or outdoor, I do not care, I love it all. I enjoy learning and growing in this sport, striving to move up to that next level and meeting all the new people that come along with it. I might be a Pickleball addict, but there are worse things, right?

I am excited for the new year and I look forward to serving on the board and continuing to grow OPA and the fabulous community of people that are a part of it!

I absolutely love pickleball and all the pickleball people I have met over the years – you’re all AWESOME!

In 2011, I began playing at Mt. Ogden park. A friend of mine, who was 75 years old, and some ladies in our church were curious about this game called pickleball. We made it our mission to learn more about this sport. The next thing we knew we were taping off a court in our church gym, purchasing big wooden paddles and starting our own pickleball adventure.

Like most who discover this sport, I am now a pickleball addict for life. I love meeting people, helping those new to the game, and expanding my second family – my pickleball family.

Game on!
