The Young Professional Series is supported year-round by the 2023 Lead Sponsor Decorah Bank & Trust Co., Supporting Sponsors Stanley Engineered Fastening – Decorah, IA and KAR Auto Group, and Contributing Sponsors Oneota Valley Family Eye Care and Hy-Vee.
The Chamber’s May 25th Young Professional event is an Intro to Pickleball. We are partnering with Decorah Parks and Recreation
and local pickleball enthusiasts (Decorah Pickleball
) to bring you a crash course in the fastest growing sport in America.
We will meet at the Decorah High School Tennis Courts (which are close to John Cline Elementary) at 430pm. Parking is along Claiborne Drive next to the courts. You can play in business casual attire (we tried it), but be thoughtful of your footwear. The court size is smaller than a tennis court but there is still some running and, if you’re ambitious, jumping. You may want to bring a water bottle or sunglasses. Paddles and balls provided courtesy of Decorah Parks and Rec. Expert Picklers will be on the courts to help everyone learn rules, scoring, and strategy. There will be both dill and sweet pickles available for your snacking convenience.
Thank you to our May event sponsor Northwestern Mutual (Harlan Satrom is an avid player!)
(This summer Decorah Parks and Recreation
, in collaboration with Decorah Pickleball
, will be offering great Pickleball opportunities. So consider this your way to see what it’s all about and if it’s something you might enjoy doing more regularly.)
We get asked all the time about the cutoff for “Young” and we say the general rule of thumb is 40(ish) but we promise to never card you! Chamber members and nonmembers welcome. No cost to attend. No registration required.
