Have you heard of 'Pickleball'? Neither had we, so we looked it up. According to Wikipedia - Pickleball is a paddle sport (similar to a racquet sport) that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a Wiffle Ball, over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules somewhat similar to tennis, with several modifications. If you would like to know more about this relatively new game, there will be a clinic for the SFC on Thursday, June 14 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. There is no cost for this clinic but those attending should wear running shoes and active wear. Please contact Anne Murphy at the DR Yacht & Tennis Club or at to register for a spot by Tuesday, June 12.
