Pickle Ball with La Gente kids & T.R.A.C.K

Today Pueblo House got to see what pickle ball is all about when Cheryl & I went to La Gente on the east side (Dogpatch), where we met T.R.A.C.K.’s  Diana Hall (who runs the mentor program) who had invited us to team up with their kids at their after school program so we could have a little fun.

So, Jim & Jerry brought the all the kids over to the basketball court across from St. Anne’s Church.   Cheryl and I drew out the court with chalk and measuring tape.  Then put up the low net and instantly we were ready to play.  It’s a cross between badminton, tennis & ping pong.   The kids had a great time and with 20 all smacking balls or retrieving balls,  it was absolutely fun to watch.  Billy G, showed up (a mentor) to take some pictures as did another gal Melissa.   All in all it was a great way to spend an hour in the sun.  A little windy at times which made it challenging for the kids, but they were happy to be out and swinging!   Thank you Cheryl Moore (retired school teacher) for getting us all out there today to learn pickle ball.
