I realy started playing in Florida about 8 years ago, but only played during the winter months while at the Camp ground. I contacted Dan to try to get something started in Phila. because the Dept. of Recreation had no knowledge of the game. That is how the Pleasant play started.
My last game was at Pleasant playground. I have played more than 3 games. I was at the first game at Pleasant Playground when it started and I played in many of the inside games at the school.
I am 74 years of age and reside in the Germantown Section of Phila.
I love to play the game and will play as often as I can. I have been trying to get other Tennis areas interested in starting to play the game.
Herb Powers, I will be there
The group is great and will expand as the word spread about the sport . Most people never heard of Pickleball , it's a new sport to the area as well as the City of Philadelphia.
