Opening of the Piedmont Middle School Pickleball Courts
September 7, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Please join us to celebrate the opening of the Piedmont Middle School Pickleball Courts!
This event will kick-off at 10am so Picklers can bask in the glory of six available courts at PMS. The Piedmont Rec. Dept. (PRD) is graciously providing beverages and snacks. There will be a raffle and be sure to take one of the new Piedmont Pickleball Decals.
There will be lessons for beginners and all levels of play are welcome to join the fun.
At 11:00 am Marcia Nieshi, a sponsored 4.5 level professional Pickleball tournament player and a Level II Certified Professional Pickleball Instructor, will be giving lessons. Marcia teaches widely in California and Hawaii.
There are tables, benches and shade trees. Additionally: Food: Directions: PMS is located at 742 Magnolia Ave, Piedmont. You can park on Magnolia or surrounding streets.
There is construction on Saturdays so parking right in front can be problematic. The badminton courts are down the hill behind the school; take the steps down to the right of the gym. Alternately there is a parking lot off El Cerrito Ave leading to Witter Field and you can walk up; this lot is likely full on weekends. Use Google Maps.
Water Fountains: Right before the 2nd set of steps is a water fountain/bottle station. There is a 2nd water fountain below at court level. Restrooms: There are restrooms going back up PE Hill behind the first court to the left by the Waste Bins.
