Bristol Pickleball Club Holiday Party Pickleball Christmas Poem & Link to the Holiday Party Video

Twas the night before Christmas

And out on the courts

Were all types of people

In sweats and in shorts.


All of them beaming and shouting with joy

Happy as children with a new Christmas toy.


Out of their bags, colorful paddles appeared

To the kitchen they scurried, lined up, and cheered.


Let’s dink it and drop it, let’s volley and kill

The balls started bouncing as if without will.


The sound from the paddles and balls as they rose

Moved all of the players to the tips of their toes.


Cross court and forward, balls started to fly

When appeared an old player with a wink in his eye.


Dressed in all red from his head to his toe

A smile on his face and a warm, cheery glow.


0 0 2 he shouted as he served me the ball

He moved like the wind,…barely saw him at all.


Then all of a sudden, it was 11 - 0h

As we lightly touched paddles, he said he must go.


Before I asked where,…  he disappeared in a haze

But I heard his farewell while still in my daze.


“Keep playing and laughing and having your fun!

Merry Pickleball to all, my work here is done!”
