"What's all that Racket?"
Details:
Pickleball is one of the fastest-growing sports in the nation. Pickleball is primarily played by current or ex-tennis players because 1) it is easier on the knees and 2) it is an indoor sport as opposed to outdoor tennis. This sport brought its own equipment into being when it came into existence. The "paddle' is specific to Pickleball, and the net is specific to Pickleball. The ball is a "whiffleball;" it was while a family was playing a whiffleball, that the family dog kept running away with it.  The family dog was "Pickles," so the name "Pickleball" was applied to the sport. Our Event Coordinators are Linda Neill,
assisted by Carol Bradford.
