Contributed by Ms Eugenia Lim, Deputy Convenor for Pickleball section
As an activity that is suitable for both the young and the young at heart, Pickleball has won over many fans, especially at NUSS. In less than two years, the section has grown from 40 members to over 100.
Other than being named the Most Promising Section of 2022, the Pickleball section has also excelled at the Singapore Pickleball Novice Competition held at Clementi Sports Hall and Bedok View Secondary School from 29 April to 7 May 2023. Ms Anna Chua, Ms Cindy Sim and Mr Steve Boey demonstrated exceptional talent and clinched three bronze medals in their respective Doubles events, which made us immensely proud.
However, our section’s focus extends beyond competitions and winning games. While we encourage and foster a healthy level of competitiveness among our members, we are equally dedicated to providing a fun and friendly environment where everyone can enjoy pickleball games in a stress-free manner.
Like a big extended family, we consistently strive to engage and include all PB section members. We organise periodic internal and external friendly games and host mini get-togethers to promote camaraderie and strengthen the bonds within our community.
We also celebrate various events and occasions together, such as Chinese New Year with traditional lohei, members’ birthdays every two months with delightful cakes, Easter Day with chocolate eggs, and Mother’s Day with flowers for our female members, among many others.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to all our members for their unwavering support and enthusiastic participation in the activities organised by the PB section. We have an exciting lineup of events planned for the future, so be sure to keep an eye out for updates.
