Day 1475: Have you ever heard of PickleBall?

Manila, junk mail collage, photo & digital

Have you ever heard of PickleBall?

I had heard the name and ...
 had somehow thought it was a senior activity?/
I read about a weekend tournament in Huntington Beach.

So Sunday, I went to check it out & I was surprised!

A combination of tennis, badminton & ping pong.

Played with a graphite racquetball-like paddle ...
& a yellow wiffle-type ball.

Played on a badminton size court, indoors or out ...
with a lower, modified net.

A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. 

The rules are simple & the game is easy for beginners to learn, 
but can develop into what I saw ...
a quick, fast-paced, 
competitive game for experienced players.

And I found a Pickleball fan ...

... escaping the heat!
Some of us are smarter than others?
