Some of the happy Pickleballers who enjoyed
the introduction of Pickleball to BRC this season. By all accounts it
has been everything it was advertised to be: quick to pick up; less
wear & tear on the body; large social component; minimally intrusive
on the tennis court; inexpensive and most importantly - a lot of
Fall Clean Up Day
The club thanks those who helped take down the screens and ready the club for the winter. The nets will remain up
all winter and the water will be on until about Thanksgiving, for those who
haven't had enough outdoor tennis this season. More pictures are
Sadly, our recent unfortunate string of losing friends continues with the latest being Paul Wallace, who passed away on November
27th at the age of 79. Paul and his wife Margaret were regular participants in club activities until a few years ago when they became inactive. Paul was known to his friends and acquaintances at BRC as being a friendly person with an engaging Irish accent. Quiet in manner but quick to share a story which was always told with a twinkle in his eye
and in a manner that was as well suited to an Irish pub as it was to the
sidelines of a tennis court. Although medical issues in recent years slowed his tennis playing, Paul was very generous in inviting
BRC friends to play on his har true court in his backyard.
Our condolences and deepest sympathies to Margaret.
Funeral services for Paul will be at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 235 E. State St., Doylestown, where the family will receive friends from 1 p.m. until the time of Mass. Interment will follow in Doylestown Cemetery.
After 17 years of managing the BRC website, this posting may well be my last one as the club’s webmaster. The time has come to hang up the old html code and make room for new ideas and fresh approaches.
The relentless advance of technology (a good thing) has overtaken my inclination to keep up. Gay Currie has graciously agreed to take over the website and Brian Kelner and I are working with her to make the transition go smoothly. We’ll start with a similar ‘look and feel’ to the website until Gay gets her sea legs and puts her own stamp on things. I hope she enjoys the experience as much as I have.
In addition to the fun of tinkering a bit with the magic that is embedded in the internet and such, the most enjoyable part for me as webmaster (which like me has become an archaic term) is that it kept me plugged into the goings-on at BRC and connected to the good people at what must be the best outdoor tennis club in the country.
Thank you for your indulgence and support over the years.
