I’m assuming your home is decorated and you’re finishing up those holiday gifts and crafts. Well, in case you are running behind and need some ideas or want a peek into some creative ideas from players and clubs like Colorado Pickleball Club, Wickenburg Parks and Recreation, Sun City Texas Pickleball Club, Libby L, Lisa C, Ron M, Sandra S, Leonardo G, Joe from Comox Valley Pickleball, Becky B, and Michael S, here you go:
Now you know why you SHOULD save all those cracked pickleball and re-purposed them into festive creations. Each holiday you can make something out of pickleballs.
Want some more photos, check out a post from a few years ago: Holiday Crafts with Pickleball
Might as well throw in a Christmas Pickleball Poem by another talented player, Greg LaVelle
Twas the night before Christmas
And out on the courts
Were all types of people
In tennies and shorts
All of them beaming and shouting with joy
Happy as children with a new Christmas toy
Out of their bags, colorful paddles appeared
To the kitchen they scurried, lined up, and cheered
Let’s dink it and drop it, let’s volley and kill
The balls started bouncing as if without will
The sound from the paddles and balls as they rose
Moved all of the players to the tips of their toes
Cross court and forward, balls started to fly
When appeared an old player with a wink in his eye
Dressed in all red from his head to his toe
A smile on his face and a warm, cheery glow
0 0 2 he shouted as he served me the ball
He moved like the wind, barely saw him at all
Then all of a sudden, it was 11 to 0
As we lightly touched paddles, he said he must go
Before I asked where, he disappeared in a haze,
But I heard his farewell while still in my daze
“Keep playing and laughing and having your fun!
Merry Pickleball to all, my work here is done!”
And if you’re still with me and looking for some homemade, holiday pickleball tunes check out these girls from Atlantic Pickleball, YouTube song:
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
