Twenty-four Eldridge youth took to the courts at Sheridan Meadows June 21-23 for the fourth annual junior pickleball camp.The camp was followed by a junior league, consisting of 12 youth, held on Monday mornings for four weeks.   Closing out the league was a fun day of pickleball play delivered through games such as Pass the Paddle,Serving Relay and King of the Hill, along with drawing prizes at the end.  Thanks to Whitey’s in Eldridge for supplying free ice cream cone cards; to Cathy for the first aid kits; and to the QCPC for supplyinga pickleball to each participant and a Pickleball Rocks paddle for the final drawing prize.
