Member, Riderwood Pickleball Club
In a membership meeting on September 1, the Pickleball Club at Riderwood approved new by-laws and also elected a new slate of officers. The new President is Joe Finan. Joe succeeds Jack McEleney, who served in that position for many years and who was unanimously declared President Emeritus.
The other elected officers are Dee Sperling as VP, David Nation as Treasurer, and Linda Pelletier as Secretary.
Joe Finan and his executive committee will be addressing the problems posed to Riderwood’s pickleball players as a result of the planned renovations in the wellness studio in Lakeside Commons, where the Club has been playing for many years.
The Pickleball Club always invites new participants. Pickleball is an ideal sport for older men and women in that little strength is required to enjoy the game. Currently, we meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:00 p.m., and Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. in the wellness studio.
