Congratulations Keith Grainge
Elaine Shallcross was not the only person to receive recognition as part of the King’s Birthday Honours this summer.
Keith Grainge, from York was awarded the British Citizen Award Certificate o Honour in recognition of exceptional positive impact on society and as an inspiration to others.
The award doesn’t specifically state pickleball but the voluntary work he has been doing is pickleball. As Keith said on his PbE membership registration “I organise older players who would otherwise miss out on a life changing experience. Based at Tadcaster leisure centre.”
Keith himself is in his 8th decade and is obviously an amazing role model.
Keith’s award was featured on BBC Look North on 9th August.
August NE Festival
Instead of a Doubles League, there was an all day festival for the NE on 13th August in Leeds. Over 70 players got together to enjoy playing pickleball on the acrylic surface of the John Charles Centre for Sport. There was a raffle with prizes donated by Wilson and Pickleball People, which raised £148 for Cancer Research.
