GCPTA NEWS: 2005-11-20

CinCincinnati junior paddle players kicked off the season with the first Friday Night Junior Paddle Clinic on November 11 at the Glendale Lyceum. 

 

With the help of the Lyceum’s Division I men’s team, thirty-five juniors, age 7 through 17, practiced their serves, screens and lobs.  For some, the Clinic was an introduction to the game.  For others, it was the opportunity to play with kids like themselves who have already discovered a love for paddle.  The evening ended with four point games and a fireside chat concerning rules, score keeping, and s’more-making techniques. 

 

Many thanks go out to all the kids and parents who made the evening a success.

Junior Paddle Clinic at Glendale

The first Friday Junior Paddle and Pizza was a success.  The kids played lots of paddle and, from what we have heard, had a great time.  In fact, there were lots of kids who clearly did not want to leave and all wanted to know when the next clinic was.  Luckily, we had a lot of member support which made it possible for us to accommodate all 35 kids who participated.  details and pictures

The Midwesterns

The Midwesterns will be held on January 13-15, 2006 and is again shaping up as one of the premier tournaments in the country.  Last year's tournament included over 200 participants

Sponsorship Opportunities for The Midwesterns

This year's tournament will be benefiting The Children's Home, an advocate agency that provides adoption services, early childhood care, education and mental health services to the children in our community.  It is a great way to support one of the fastest growing sports in our city and a tremendous charity as well.  We are looking for both cash sponsorships as well as raffle items.  For more information on the benefits of the different levels of sponsorship, contact Mark Kebe at 513-325-7746 or at mkebe@fuse.net.

Upcoming Tournament

The West Penn Open will be held in Pittsburgh during the weekend of December 2-4, 2005.  The Women's Open is on Friday December 2 and the Men's Open is on Saturday and Sunday December 3-4.  It is one of the best run tournaments and is always a lot of fun.  For more information, go to their website at www.wppta.org and click on "Calendar".
