16 players this Saturday morning. The weather was nice and mild. Played from 7:30 a.m. until just a little before 10. Play was highlighted by local first time player Janet Van Boxtel teaming with Ambassador Jack Hodges to defeat veteran players Steve Sidwell and Doug Bates 12-10. Major victory for the rookie newcomer!!!! Janet played well all day. Next Saturday, July 13th, we will put on our monthly FREE Demonstration Clinic which is open to anyone interested in finding out more about this great game. Time: 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. Loaner equipment is available, so all you have to do is show up.
This "momentum" rule came up again. Remember, momentum is continuous. If you hit a winning volley that passes your opponents, rolls against the back fence, is picked up by one of the opponents AND THEN you (teetering on the legal side of the No Volley Zone) fall in to the NVZ, it is a fault or a point for the opposition. Until you gain control of your body, "Mo" still applies. Teetering is not control. There is NO MOMENTUM violation if the ball bounced on your side of the court, you moved forward to hit, and after the hit, your forward momentum carried you into the NVZ. This is legal because the ball bounced. Remember, a volley is different from a groundstroke!
And now....the Champagne. You are going to get a review (opinion) on things other than Pickleball on this blog. Good food, good desserts, good restaurants, good "something." Today's blog gives two thumbs up to Cuvee Bistro and Champagne Bar in Avila Beach. Under new ownership, and with new Executive Chef Mari Lenci, Cuvee is quickly becoming a favorite spot for Avila Beach locals and visitors alike. We ate lunch there two days in row and the food and drinks were great. I might recommend the Chicken Caesar Salad and the Turkey Panini. The quiche was also excellent. BTW, they also have great desserts.
