Fun for the Whole Family

| April 17, 2020

There is a sport with a fun name sweeping the nation. It's a pastime that many people "relish" regardless of age or background,and despite its growing popularity, it's also a game that many people remain unaware of. Quite the pickle,since this mysterious pastime is the fastest-growing sport in the United States. It's played in elementary schools, community recreation centers, country clubs, and parks where more than 2.8 million passionate players swing their rackets daily. No, It's not tennis, but you're on the right track. The sport is Pickleball!!!

I personally fell in love with the sport a few years back and have played it as often as I can each week with both family and friends. The social aspect of the game is like no other competitive sport I've ever played. Along with the physical exercise (that doesn't kill my knees) I greatly miss the social part of pickleball during this time of social distancing due to COVID-19. I'm most grateful that we've had a few warm days so far this spring to set up the net in our driveway and play the game with my wife and kids. Which by the way are also hooked on the game!

If you're looking for a something fun to do with the whole family you might explore the game of pickleball. Here are few resources to get you started.
