Friends of Community Fitness pickleball leagues wrap up

GUILFORD — Friends of Community Fitness wrapped up the first season of pickleball leagues on Tuesday, Oct. 17. The season began in May and there were three league sessions including up to eight teams playing matches  over six weeks with a championship round between the top two scoring teams.

The first two championships were played by Jim and Lynn Lubas vs. Ron Fountain and Sherrie Thomas, with the Lubas team coming out as the first-place team. The third session Lynn and Sherrie partnered up to form a new power-house team, taking first place in the final championship round against Britney Gallagher and Jason Brochu.

Lynn Lubas was consistently the reigning champ for all three sessions this year. You may know Lynn from  one of the many places she is involved in. Lynn is a member of the Penquis Ukele Players, volunteers  regularly with Kiwanis, the Law Farm, and is an active member of St. Thomas Aquinas Church. Lynn plays pickleball regularly at several area courts as well as when they travel. 

Friends of Community Fitness is offering indoor pickleball for the winter Tuesday and Thursdays 9:30-11:30 a.m., Wednesdays 5:30-7 p.m., and Sundays 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. They plan to organize round robin tournaments for all ability levels, then resume the summer league again next spring.
