Celebrate November by taking pause and be thankful for the joy you bring to Westbrook Village. We are the most active and fun Club in the Village "Oh, Sturgis", some will say, "you’re a little nuts". Possibly, but if you saw the 180 attendees at the last 6 Training Classes or the 103 attendees at the Membership meeting, they were all smiles. It’s a great time to be a WBV Pickelballer!
