Hi Pickleballers,

Happy October!  Fall is arriving, and with that, cooler temps are here (thank god 😊).  We anticipate a lot of our players will be moving outdoors.  However, we are going to try to entice you indoors for our skill-based league play, Round Robins, weekly drill work, and our awesome instructor clinics and lessons.  Oh, and one more special offering – our Visiting Pro Series (da da boom).  Last month, Helle Sparre visited VICTORIUM.  This month we are hosting, wait for it… …Lindsey and Riley Newman!

Lindsey and Riley, the pickleball phenoms who are taking this sport by storm, have agreed to come to VICTORIUM for an exclusive “Play with the Pros” followed by a 3-hour Advanced Interactive Boot Camp!  We are beyond thrilled and excited for this special event.  For more details about the Newman’s programs, please see below…  To see Lindsey and Riley win the Gold Medal in MXD (vs. Esquival/Yates) at Vail - click here (start at 10 mins).

EARLY WINTER LEAGUES: In November, our EARLY WINTER Leagues will be starting up.  If you didn’t get into our Fall Leagues, now is your chance.  As most of you know, league spots fill up quickly, so secure your spot soon SIGN UP HERE!
