On Saturday, January 20, “Bradenton Shuffle School” will begin at 8:30 a.m, All interested parties are welcome. The first moments will be devoted to the history of the great sport and its development in the past century.
We will attempt to start all beginners on the right foot with good habits so you won’t form bad habits you would need to break to become proficient as your career evolves.
This columnist will serve as dean, and professors will be available. Volunteers are needed from the ranks of accomplished veterans. We will attempt to meet the needs of students at their present level. Some courts will cater to beginners, and others to those with some experience, and perhaps a few to work at advanced levels. All of us may learn, and all are welcome.
We will offer to work from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30. If you must leave early, you may, but we hope to help each student improve as their interest permits. There is no charge for this free school.
We welcome students who wish to play recreational games as well as those with competitive spirit. We are also prepared to respond to invitations from clubs who wish to enjoy such an event at your own facility. Questions are welcome at (941) 756-8548.
