Meet Jeannie Ramsey, newly-elected at-large board member for PTPC. As the person in charge of activities, Jeannie has a lot of ideas about club socials and mixers, the first one being August 10 at Cape George. 4;00-7pm - 61 Cape George Drive. UPDATE: Annual meeting & Party has currently been canceled & postponed until further notice. News blast was sent out to all subscribers.
Jeannie has been playing pickleball for about eight years, coming from the world of tennis where she played competitively for more than fifty years. "I thought I would never love a sport as much as I loved tennis, but then I discovered Pickleball,” she stated. “This sport is fast, competitive and extremely fun. It’s a great social activity."
Jeannie is fortunate to be able to play on the Cape George community court, but is also a member of both our club and Sequim Picklers. Alongside another Sequim Pickler, Beverly Hoffman, she has competed in many tournaments in Washington as well as at the regional and National level. The team recently won the 4.0 75+ women’s doubles at the Northwest Regionals in Boise, ID, which automatically qualified them for the National Pickleball Championships which will be held at the Indian Wells complex in Palm Springs in December. This will be the second Nationals experience as she and Beverly competed in Casa Grande, AZ, several years ago.
• How did you and Beverly Hoffman meet and become tournament partners?
Beverly and I met when we were playing indoors at the Boys and Girls Club in Sequim during the winter. We were both just about 70 then and after playing a few times, she thought we had the same playing style and asked if I wanted to join her at the Nationals in Arizona. That was 5 or 6 years ago. We have medaled in every tournament we have played in, except that one.
• Highlight what the final match was like and what the score was before you and Beverly took the final as gold winners in the Northwest Regionals.
Our final match in regionals was played in over 100 degree heat and went three games. We lost the first 15-13, won the 2nd 14-12 and the 3rd 11-8. It was brutal, and in the end, I just think we communicated really well and were a bit more consistent than the other team.
good friends and gold medalist Jeannie ramsey and beverly hoffman
