Jenae Alms

Vice President

Randy and I moved to Oceanside from Lake Forest after raising our children. While I was recuperating from a shoulder injury, my tennis partner encouraged me to try Pickleball and I was hooked! The players at Melba Bishop were so welcoming and I quickly learned to love the sport both for its competitiveness, and its social aspects. I asked, how can I help?

With my sincere desire to let everyone know about this game we all love, I became a USAPA Ambassador and Certified Referee. When not spending time with our seven children and eleven grandchildren, I’ve used skills gained as an Optician managing various optical stores to run multiple tournaments over the years, including both the Pasadena and San Diego Senior Games, and the first USAPA West Regional held in California.

Pickleball is able to up lift those who participate. Whether it’s someone who didn’t think they’d be able to stay active due to physical restrictions, or someone who finds needed friendships in fellow players. I look forward to serving on the board, listening to you, and finding ways to make Oceanside Pickleball the top place to compete, improve skills, and enjoy friendships.  You can email Jenae at vicepresident@oceansidepickleball.net

Mary Kolar

Treasurer

My husband and I moved to Carlsbad in 2018. We are originally from Wisconsin where we both graduated from UW-Madison. We have five children, four born in Minnesota and the youngest in New Jersey. We’ve also lived in Scottsdale, Omaha and Boise. When we found out we were finally going to have a grandchild, we retired and moved to San Jose to help out. That is where we were introduced to Pickleball.Two years ago we moved to Los Angeles to help with our second grandchild. I love playing Chickleball on Tuesday’s and meeting all the friendly players. I look forward to getting to know you all and to help grow our club. You can email Mary at treasurer@oceansidepickleball.net

Marci Kalbfell

Secretary

I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. I moved to San Diego in the middle of my Junior year of High School, then got married the next year to my now husband, Ken. Two years later Kim was born and two years after her we had Kari.

I love to travel and as you can tell, I LOVE animals! I love to visit my friends who own exotic animals.

I learned about Pickleball in 2016 from a neighbor and started playing at Melba Bishop in January of 2017. The first person I met at MB was Monica Stampbach and we became instant friends! Since then I have made many, many great friends. I haven’t played Pickleball for over two years due to four surgeries. I’m hoping to be back on the courts within a few months.  You can contact Marci at secretary@oceansidepickleball.net

Ann Woolard

Socal Director

I was born and raised in suburbia Philly.  I hated the cold so, as soon as I could, I bolted to warm Florida, got married, got my accounting degree, and had 3 beautiful, awesome daughters.  Meanwhile, my husband (at the time) and I opened a bunch of fitness centers.  Finally divorced in 2013 and sold off our remaining gyms.  In 2014 I started hanging out with Bob.  He took me on cruise out of the Port of San Diego in November of 2016 and, when we got back, we decided to spend a week in San Diego- Del Mar.  We loved it here so much!!  We contacted a realtor and looked at some homes. Then we flew back in January and bought a beautiful home in Bonsall.  And, can you believe, we had never heard of Pickleball!  Luckily our neighbor here in Bonsall invited us to Pickleball one morning and we’ve been hooked ever since.  You can email Ann at memberatlarge@oceansidepickleball.net
