"It's not Goodbye but see ya later"
Susi Feller and Toni Davison have been "PTPC" members since its inception a year and a half ago, having served on the Steering Committee which founded the Club. Subsequently they served on the Founding Board as Director of Court Operations and Director of Membership. They currently still hold these positions and have given selfless time and dedication to our Club in these very demanding roles. They will be deeply missed.
How did you discover Pickleball ?
Susi: We played pickleball a few times with a friend in Colorado before we moved to PT. Our friend then visited us in Port Townsend and discovered play at the gym.
Toni: A friend visiting us in PT one winter played pickleball several times a week at the gym. Since we needed something to do in the winter, she convinced us to give it a try and the rest is history.
You’re both Board members and chair of committees. What keeps you motivated to dedicate so much of your time working on behalf of PTPC?
Susi: The desire to continue to play pickleball, expand and improve the opportunities to do so locally.
Toni : A great group of people and the great game of pickleball.
What’s one of your fondest memories living here in Port Townsend ?
Susi: Kinetic Sculpture Race and walking on the beach.
Toni: Time spent around Fort Worden, seeing seals, orcas, otters and sea stars. The beauty of the water and surrounding mountains.
Just for fun, if you had a chance to play with any Pro Pickleball Player, who would it be with?
Susi: Sarah Ansboury
Toni: Simone Jardim
What is in your Pickleball future?
Susi: Continuing to play wherever we live, meet new players and make new friends.
Toni: Lots of pickleball - hope to keep improving.
A favorite quote or words of wisdom you would like to leave with us club members?
