By Bob Webb
Saturday Pickleball Socials at the Lake Osprey RV Country Club have become a weekly Pickleball Party. Gary and Penny Ratliff Pickleball Representatives for Lake Osprey serve as Host and Hostess for these weekly events. The Pickleball Socials consists of PB which starts at 10:00 AM, with Lunch that includes adult beverages served around 12:15. Pickleball then continues in the afternoon. The cost per person is $3.00 (not a typo sports fans, $3.00). Lake Osprey is one of the most beautiful RV Resorts in the U.S. and there is truly a feeling of “getting away from it all” when relaxing with a cold drink in hand under the swaying palm trees around the PB courts.
Even if you do not play Pickleball, but have heard about America’s fastest growing sport and would like to watch and socialize, come on out and join the fun! Pickleball is a very social sport and beginners are welcome. Group lessons are available at 9:00 for the cost of $3.00 per person on the 1st Saturday of each month at Lake Osprey by CAPC Hall of Fame Members Shirley and Billy Reeves. Gary and Penny also offer free lessons per schedule during the week.
