Default Pickleball @Burnsed " Corona Virus "

It has been reported by the Villages Pickleball Club that an individual ( Male ) who played at Burnsed last Mon/Tues 03/16/17, has been tested positive for Corona Virus.

Also they claim he wore gloves.

Please show a link to the source, to provide evidence this is not hearsay.

I'm not surprised.

There is a thread on TOTV titled, "Spring breakers got it !!!!" I think this thread ought to be titled, "Pickleballers got it."

To me, the gloves were meaningless. He was expelling the virus from his mouth via his saliva as he exerted himslef while playing the game.

God help his fellow players and friends.

They have a web site, but it's very minimal. They don't give a phone number, and their "contact" link doesn't work.


If you still have the email, it would be helpful if you could copy and post the pertinent part. Or supply a phone number or email address.

I receive Email from that club and check the Facebook page and web site regularly. I have seen so such Email. Perhaps I just missed it but my guess is this is just a rumor.

So when you go to store or gas station how many do you think are infected and needing supplies? Nobody can last 14 days in their house that’s been exposed. The problem anywhere down around 466A overcrowded.

Look I posted my comments as FYI nothing more. I received an email from the President of the Pickleball Club to " All Current Members " all I am is just trying to be helpful .

You want to believe it or not … up to you however this is not a rumor. As you will find out.

It was a couple who returned from a cruise .

And please forget the eventual to me " I'm Sorry " . I didn't realize etc. For those who got up in this I feel really bad for you.

For the person who played ? Totally Irresponsible. The person in question is a rated 4.5 player .

I have said enough. I posted this as a FYI, honestly I'm not surprised at the reactions.

PS: I do not and have never played @ Burnsed.

Talk to the Pickleball President, and again forget the apologizes when he confirms what I said. !!

It's not a rumor. Pickleball players who came in contact with the individual at Burnsed have been notified. The date of the email from The Pickleball Club is March 23.

It’s not cancer......how many people do you know that had it and died? We can’t all stay in our houses. Paranoia leads to panic which leads to greater issues than the flu. Please.....just stop the insanity!

There is no excuse for socially irresponsible behavior.

OP, just reported what he knew. Better we know than we hide our heads in the sand. Why kill the messenger? Prayers for any person that contracts this virus.
