Who plays Pickleball out there. I know the Bomber does. For you that do not know this game it is a combination of ping-pong and tennis. It was a game that you played in gym class in the late 80 and early 90s what a great game.

It is a small tennis court without a net, would fit inside on side of a basketball court and use have the small rules as ping-pong and use oversized ping-pong paddles and a whiffle ball, it is really fast pace and extremely fun. you can find out more on the internet.

I used to play that when I was in elementary school in Georgetown. I thought it was a pretty fun game to play. But it's been nearly 10 years since I have played. Wow I'm getting old. I just thought it's been 10 years since I was in elementary school.

Pikey you sound like a legend in your own mind. A lot of people can handle over-the-hill pencil pushers. Do you ever accept a real challenge.

Never played pickleball, but I have played "chinese ping-pong", as my old PE teacher would call it. It's played on a ping-pong table sitting on a hard surface (concrete, hardwood, whatever) with no net. The serve has to hit the table, go off the end of the table, bounce 1 time on the floor (no more than once), then must be returned. The return has to hit the table at least once, no maximum amount of times (it can roll across the table), and can come off the table at any side. It then must bounce once and then the whole process starts over. You get a point by your opponent letting the ball bounce on the floor more than once, or them returning and it missing the table.

To make it more interesting, before the serve, the player serving can dart to the other end of the table and serve. You must then run to the other end of the table yourself and try to return the serve. Or, the server could even make a complete trip around the table and serve from where they started.

It's a really fun game, and really good exercise.

Still finding out if any little fellas in 129 and 133 can win a series. So far they have been proper.

Well Johnny Ringo. What a pleasant surprise. Liberty I think the gloating takes place much more than the whining. Next time the pickleball comes right between the eye's.

Well Pikey, I didn't think you had it in you to show, I guess since you're accepting challenges I need to find a buddy & get in on this showdown too, if you think you're up to it thumb4.gif
