Joy of Pickleball

Happy 2020!!

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!
