CDW Olympic Update – Pickle Ball!

May 15th, 2009


I hope you never make the ghastly mistake of assuming that small towns lack adventure, drama and interesting people.


Because then you might never know about pickleball!

Pickleball is a recent import to our fair community.


Show Cat Breeders Rosie and Gordon brought it all the way from Arizona.


It was hard lugging this court clear across the country in a trailer full of Show Cats, but Rosie and Gordon are not faint of heart.


Pickleball is played on a small court with a wiffle ball and you have to know if you are “one” or “two”. I never know if I am a “one” or a “two” but in my family of four sons, there is always someone willing to tell me.


Pickleball is kind of like tennis except it is way funner because it is way easier.


Even the most grossly incompetent athlete such as myself are occasionally able to hit the ball over the net.


And when I don’t hit it over the net, Rosie always insists that I get another chance… which is why Rosie is my favorite.


Rosie and Gordon’s hammock is also my favorite.
I find that I play my very best pickleball games from this position.

For in the fading twilight of a cool summer evening, there is perhaps no better spot on earth.

Than on a pickleball court in a friends back yard.
Thanks Rosie and Gordon!
