Pickleballers

For the uninitiated, Pickleball is essentially big doubles ping pong played on a quarter of a tennis court. Believe it or not, it was invented in 1965 at the home of former Washington State Representative Joel Pritchard on Bainbridge Island. I had never seen it played before we moved to SD. These games take place behind the office of Delaney’s orthodontist. I was fascinated, but the office manager told me, “yep, they’re plinking-kerplunking all day every day.” I guess that would get old.
