    We also offer the APC Beginners' Group, which is open to APC members only.  To join the group, click here to access the master list. (Apple users, try opening it using Chrome if you have difficulties.) Please scroll to the bottom of the list and fill out your information. Members communicate using the TeamReach app.  Once you have entered your contact information on the Master List, please contact me for the group code.  BTW, regarding the Google doc, your information is confidential because it is only open to other APC members, not to the general public. Please do not share the link with anyone who is not an APC member.  

    If you reach the point that you no longer consider yourself a "beginner", simply remove your name from the list.

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to email me.

    I’m looking forward to meeting you. See you on the pickleball court!
