How did you find out about the game of Pickleball?

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.

When & where did you last play Pickleball?

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.

What is your age and where do you reside?

I am 74 years of age and reside in the Germantown Section of Phila.

Would you be available to play during the daytime, evening, or weekends?

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

What Herb P. is saying about this Meetup Group

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.
