Tired of binge-watching old TV series? Longing to get back with friends in person but need to keep six feet apart? Has your interest in Zoom meetings waned? If so, a weekly pickleball outing could be just the ticket. John White is organizing a few Rotarians and others who might be interested in getting together over the summer months for a couple hours of non-competitive fun.
Pickleball is a sport that combines elements of tennis, ping pong, and badminton. It is played on a hard court sized for badminton with solid paddles and a plastic wiffle ball. It is typically played as doubles. With the relatively small court, paddles instead of racquets, underhand serving, and a slowish ball, the game is easily accessible by all age groups. The keys are reflexes, teamwork, and strategy.
