Youth Games Find Sunny Skies

BETENDORF, IOWA — Solid forehands, backhands, and overhead smashes were part of the play.

Eight courts were filled on a sunny afternoon on June 27, 2015, as area youth took to the Kiwanis Park Pickleball Courts. Under the guidance of 15 club members, young players between the ages of 8 and 15 were offered instruction on the game of pickleball. Many were new to the game and some have played before.

A free paddle, pickleball balls, and gift certificates were raffled at the end of the games. Thanks to Ruth Seneff and Judy Petersen for organizing play. Thanks to Cathy Gains for arranging for the prizes. Thanks to Patty Goetsch for donating the paddle. Thanks to the instruction shared by volunteers Sharon and Tom Brooks, Dennis Boehme, Jack Hermie, Del Ladehoff, Laurie Lartz, Martha Shelangouski, Trudy and Jim Zuidema, Terry Wangler, Sharon Walters, and Dean Easterlund.
