Here are pictures of our recognition of Joe and Linda. They have retired as our Reffing Coordinators. They have done this job for many years. They have put energy, effort, time, and they have reffed MANY tournaments even though they did not play in them. They have trained many of our club members and have kept up on the rules of the game. They were given a picture with signatures from our APC members to thank them. They were given a visa gift card just to say THANK YOU from the club they helped grow and support. They love this game just an many of us do.

We the Albuquerque Pickleball Club thank you.
