My name is Dudley Sluder, I've been an Ambassador for the DELMARVA shore for some time. I've assisted in the growth of pickleball in Ocean Pines area . That group was started by Bob and Sharon Anthony,and is now in the very capable hands of Frank Creamer and Julie Wolfe. They have brought growth the that club that is unbelievable.
I helped get the Pokomoke YMCA club started at the request of Matt Klein. Its going great with the help of Ambassador Vicky Sieber. I helped introduce pickleball to the YMCA in Frederick, Md. That was a joint effort with Carroll County Ambassador Bob Eney and some of his players. I'v converted tennis courts and held clinics at Bay Colony, The Peninsula, Baywood Greens ( spearheaded by Terri Newlin).We just converted 2 tennis courts into 3 Pickleball courts at the Seaford Parks and Rec.That club is in the fine hands of Sue Schreckengast who should be an Ambassador. My next project will be in Chestertown,Md. A small group of ladies up there are getting a group started and have asked for my help. I also have an Ambassadors party every spring that attracts 70-80 players for a day of social pickleball.
