3-on-3 Competition with the Old Man Sports Club of Lorton
The Woodbridge Pickleball Club had the honor of hosting The Old Man Sports Club, a club based out of Lorton, VA, for a friendly cross club competition. Jimmy of the Old Man Sports Club reached out to us and was connected to Mike Kline, WPC Board member and Competition Committee Chair.
Together Mike and Jimmy decided on a 3-on-3 team 2-out-of-3 games format: two teams at 3.5 and one team at 4.0. Representing the Woodbridge Pickleball Club was Dave Delevante, Johnny Fagler, Mike Kline, Nick Katsarelis, Jason Shriner, and Jeff Kendrick who are also regular volunteers with the WPC. Mike was surprised to discover the day of that the old men in the Old Man Sports Club were not quite the same age as the lineup he selected for us! This discovery started the competition with a good laugh shared by everyone.
Sadly, Jimmy was unable to play due to an injury so Lisa stepped in as his sub – her dink game was inspiring!
The Woodbridge Pickleball Club came away with 3 wins and the WPC players were presented with gift cards for Fair Winds Brewing Company provided by the Old Man Sports Club. Thank you to Fair Winds Brewing Company for your donation!
After the competition, everyone was encouraged to continue with open play and mixed together for several more games.
