Happy New Year!

January 11, 2022

It’s hard to believe that 2022 is already here. Even though the weather is chilly right now, warmer temperatures will be here before we know it — and we can enjoy outdoor pickleball and tennis again.

I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Kelley Cole and I am the new manager here at Courtside. Becky Moody and her husband Bob are in the process of moving to Florida (we’re not jealous at all, are we???). She and I have worked closely these past few months to ensure a smooth transition.

Tennis has been my passion for over 30 years. As a “tennis snob” I did not intend to ever try pickleball. But in February 2019 I was visiting a friend in The Villages and she convinced me to try some pickleball….and now I love it, too. When the opportunity became available to manage Courtside, I was excited to apply.

As winter rages on outside, I am busy preparing for the upcoming outdoor season. We are planning on having kid camps and group lessons, a few “Learn to Play” days, challenge ladders, and social events. I am working on a schedule that won’t interfere with those of you who already have committed times at Courtside. Also, if you know anyone who might be interested in teaching private tennis lessons or conducting weekday camps for pickleball and tennis, please have them contact me.

One of my former supervisors loved the saying, “No one likes change except a baby with a dirty diaper.” I know Becky did an amazing job at Courtside and some things will be different, but hopefully we can work together to create an even more wonderful pickleball and tennis community!

Please feel free to email me at courtsidepaddleandracket@gmail.com with questions, suggestions, or just to say hello! I will be trying to keep the Facebook page updated and will be creating an Instagram page as well. Share our website and social media with family and friends!

In the meantime, stay warm and healthy!
