Nancy Rust, one of our League Administrators and Founders, has decided to retire as a League Admin. It’s a very rewarding position that requires a lot of time and dedication.
Nancy is the mastermind behind the formats of our ladder leagues and tournaments. She also created the much loved “THE BIG FLEX,” and has been a strong advocate in maintaining the “small town, neighborhood feeling” that is at the heart of our league culture. We are grateful for everything Nancy gave to our pickleball community over the past year! The DREAM TEAM won’t be the same without her. We will miss the frequent collaboration and laughs on our Admin Signal group.
The good news is… Nancy, now Founder Emeritus, will have more time for her family, her dog Pickles, writing, and playing pickleball. She will always be part of Westside Pickleball League. She will come out of retirement to run our summer 2024 tournament (we have that on record!) and of course we will see her on the courts.
MORE good news… Nancy is passing the “Chief Sealth league coordinator” torch! Nicole Nedervelt will manage weekly results and court assignments at Chief Sealth High School (CSHS) starting October 15th. We are very excited to have Nicole onboard.
A big thank you to Nancy and warm welcome to Nicole!
