PickleChicks Apparel by Cheryl

Initially Cheryl had this clothing made to wear herself while coaching as a simple way to promote herself and her brand. Then, to her surprise, her clients were asking to buy it. That is how this fun line got started. It is in it’s infancy at this time so just 2 items of various colours to choose from. The vibrant embroidered cartoon logo is made of 20,000 stitches and takes 40 minutes to complete each one!

The Importance of Eye Protection in Pickleball

When I am out on the pickleball courts I witness players being hit by the ball every day. This happens at times in error and at the times as a strategic shot made on purpose. While playing outdoors, the players wear sunglasses and as a result have eye safety. However, when the weather has them playing indoors, I see that very few players are wearing eye protection and this concerns me. Permanent or partial loss of vision, torn retinas, bleeding in the eye, cuts requiring stitches and black eyes are looming if we don’t make wearing the glasses the norm like in squash and racquetball.The most common eye injuries are preventable by wearing clear, shatter proof and anti-fog  lenses. I personally wear Ryder seventh glasses and I love how safe I feel in them. They are lightweight and I hardly notice I am wearing anything at all.
