PPC at Seniors’ Week

pickleclub18 Website

Penticton Pickleball Club was well represented during Seniors’ Week by Debbie Wagar and Shirley Persson.  A Community Groups exhibition was held at the Penticton Seniors Drop-In Centre as the wind-up for Seniors’ Week.

Debbie reports there was quite a bit of interest in our club.  Most people knew about pickleball, and some had even played before.

Many thanks to Debbie and Shirley for hosting the table!

Congrats to Our PPC Members!
