Log readers who know her might enjoy this fun story about founding Green Bay women’s basketball coach Carol Hammerle, who still carries the title “coach” despite having retired nearly a decade ago. Now it is with a new sport — pickleball — exploding in retirement communities and considered the fastest growing sport in America. See the feature.
What is pickleball, you ask?
This self-serving Log editor who loves the game encourages you to check out the sport at the USA Pickleball Association website. That’s right, it has a national association. Some describe the sport as a cross between tennis, badminton and ping pong. And it is fun! Rumor has it a few campus employees will bring back a couple of noon-hour clinics this summer so that you can give it a try. Check out video and more at http://www.usapa.org/.
