Murdo Frazer hosted a special event to reinforce the notion that pickleball is a sport for all ages. 60 people attended the event which started at 9 am, and 55 of those in attendance brought their paddles and were ready to play.
It was an honour to introduce 7 of our SUPER SENIOR members. Our over-80 members in attendance were Ed and Lilly Orlovsky, Allan and Diana Marr, and John Kennedy. Two of our members playing on Saturday were 92 year old Elmer Helm and 90 year old Jack Hardy. One court at Murdo was designated for the super seniors and they played several games over a few hours. We also had one game where Elmer, at 92 years of age, partnered up with Connor B, a 17 year old club member. Imagine a sport where the age difference of the partners is an amazing 75 years, and they played against two 80 year old players!
Thank you to our Super Seniors for giving us with some good entertainment, and for the inspiration you provide us.
