In the Spring of 2009, Bill Dougherty and Joan moved to Rossmoor. He started Pickleball with one tennis court, a few days a week. Bill convinced Tice Valley Gym to allow Pickleball on the badminton courts, with a lowered net. Some of the original members were Dick and Lynn Hildebrand, Wayne Moon, Trish Dickinson, Addie Mattox, Steve and Linda Ritz.
On the first day of play, an all American Swimmer, Barbara Jordan came to play and broke her wrist in a fall! What a start!
Danielle Lucking was the 23rd member!
WCPC was formed in 2014 when we split from the Rossmoor Pickleball Club. Both clubs have grown to over 450 members today!!
