The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that adults get 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week, and tennis/pickleball play can fit into those parameters. Additionally, the CDC recommends performing two or more days of muscle-strengthening activities per week, such as lifting weights or using resistance bands. Therefore, pickleball can certainly count toward your weekly exercise goal — but for optimal fitness, it shouldn't be the only type of workout you're doing.
To prevent injuries to the ankles and knees (most common injuries) while playing tennis/pickleball.

In preparation for the rain this week, we applied a light dusting of sand to the greens on our maintenance day. Monthly applications of sand applied to the greens during this time of the year must be done when rain is in the forecast. The rain helps move the sand down into the canopy. During other times of the year, the sand would be watered in by hand, or with overhead sprinklers. The small amount of sand each month plays a vital role in maintaining the green's firmness and ball roll.

The rain is expected to be heavy on Thursday and again on Saturday. There is also a chance of more rain next week as well. We need all the rain we can get at this time of the year to make a dent in the ongoing drought in California!
