LIU Winter Newsletter 2022

Hello Amazing Oasis Families,

I would like to wish everyone a very happy and healthy holiday season and a safe and prosperous New Year.

As the holidays near, I look forward to spending time with my family. My son Jordan is graduating college this month and my daughter Kaylee will be spending her winter break from Quinnipiac University home with us.

As we plan for summer 2023, I can’t stop thinking about all the wonderful memories from last summer. We are working very hard to build on those memories. This coming summer will be our biggest and best yet.

I look forward to seeing everyone this coming summer, which will be here before we know it.

Again, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to all,

What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a paddle sport played with a whiffle ball on a badminton-sized court and a tennis-style net.

Pickleball is enjoyed by people of all ages and athletic abilities thanks to its ease of play and straightforward rules. The sport is inexpensive, social and healthy, and has been widely accepted in school gyms, fire stations, community centers, local parks, athletic clubs and thousands of backyard sports courts. In some ways it’s a combination of tennis and badminton, and along with sports such as table tennis and racquetball, pickleball has exploded in popularity. Thousands of pickleball courts have been built in recent years.
