HOW TO DRY THE PICKLEBALL COURTS

   With all the rain we've been experiencing lately, it's a good time to remind everyone how to use the rollers used to remove water from the courts.   It's very important to note that you must always hang up the roller when you are done with it.  If you leave it standing on the ground, it creates a flat spot on the roller and renders it useless the next time we need to use it.    I've attached a link to a YouTube video showing how to use the roller in a circular motion that is supposed to be a faster and more effective method; however, rolling the water off to the end of the courts is still an option.  

Two very important things about the roller to avoid damaging it:  

        Always hang up the roller when done!  
        Never step on the roller to wring out the water.  😊
