Hope all healthy and thus far 2020 treating you well. On the 31st my sister Donna and her husband Ken sent fresh crab from Seattle so Susan and I welcomed the new year with crab and champagne … managed to stay awake until after midnight. Last month I mentioned working on my next iMovie and presentation at our local Senior Center: Joy of Pickleball (JoyPickleball Announcement). As noted a few times recently, I really enjoy playing and teaching the game of pickleball. There is a flow and rhythm to the game that’s both relaxing and engaging. Ironically, I find similarities between learning to play pickleball and learning to alpine ski: initially the learner’s approach is commonly defensive but overtime there is a significant change in performance as understanding and confidence increase. Love it! Included in the iMovie is a discussion of when and why the game of pickleball began and how the game is played. Also included in the movie is some footage from a “Beginners” pickleball clinic I did in Tanzania last summer as well as some of our local pickleball players playing the game and discussing the attraction of pickleball. If you’re in town, I hope you can join us on February 24th for the pickleball presentation.
Have a great year!
