Tennis & Pickleball News 

Happy Holidays! What a wonderful thing we have here at our Tennis & Pickleball Center. A place we can come and enjoy life, in spite of all this craziness. Thanks so much for your support, love and comradery throughout this very tough year.

I would like to share with you a little information about a Foundation that our club has been supporting for years. It is called Outrageous Love – Joe’s Addiction Shop. This foundation does truly wonderful things for our community. Its founder, Jamie Zumwalt, has dedicated over 10 years of her life to help those in need. Please take a look at this short video to learn more about what they do: https://youtu.be/HAuMY34nzK0. My wish is to help this Foundation through our events so if you take a look at our December Tournament list, you will find they benefit this Foundation. I hope you will join our events and support this effort to help those who need it most.

We are also holding a Toy Drive at Hidden Trails to benefit this organization- more info below!

Give Christmas gifts to those in need! 🎁
Donate by December 15th.

Each year, Hidden Trails collects toys for impoverished children as well as gifts for the parents.

We support the efforts of Joe Addiction Shop which serves in one of the poorest communities in the OKC area.

Members can bring unwrapped gifts to the club by December 15th or make a donation for a Santa Shopper to search for toys to fulfill the needs of the registered children in the program.  “Quantity over Quality” was described as the need by Chis Hollrah, HT employee and volunteer of Joe’s Addiction Shop, because the “need is so great this year.”

Thank you kindly for your thoughtful gifts!
