My name is Lori Cochran. I am an Instructor at Jacksonville State University in the Health & Physical Education Dept. I am also the Faculty Sponsor of our newly founded Club Pickleball Team at JSU. (I am also an avid player and compete in many tournaments).
At JSU, we are building a competitive Club team whose goal is to create community, friendships, knowledge and skill in the game (at all levels) all while participating in leisure and competitive pickleball games.
Since pickleball is a lifetime sport that is enjoyed by all ages – and the fastest growing sport in the nation – we are extending our practice session areas to ANYWHERE in YOUR region where you can participate in drills and play with your friends or local pickleball groups.
Currently, we are “recruiting” JSU students to become members of our Club. JSURec financially supports our uniforms, travel, tournament entries etc – so we are working diligently to gain members who want to play in University Club Tournaments in the Southeast.
Who is eligible? ANY JSU student, of any age, who is currently enrolled in JSU classes, in person, online, or high school dual enrollment. As long as you have a JSU student ID, you are eligible.
How do I become a member? Simply click this link and I will validate you and add you to our group. [https://jsu.campusgroups.com/PickleballClub/club_signup](https://jsu.campusgroups.com/PickleballClub/club_signup)
Emmanuel College in Franklin Springs GA will be introducing pickleball to the students via a tournament. The contact is email@example.com and phone number is 706 599 3617. Gold medal team prize $300. Silver team $200. Bronze $100. They could use information and sponsors that would like to target young adult college students in their first ever exposure to pickleball.
