Today, we learned a new sport... pickle-ball! We started off with a new warm-up, where we each picked an exercise from a choice of 8 fun activities (created in part by Heavy Metal Jalapeño). Members chose 5 min jogging, 5 minutes on exercise balls, and 5 minutes of bean bag toss. After lunch we headed up to the YMCA for our very first pickle-ball lesson with our pickle-ball coaches Courtney and Mary! We learned how to hit the ball over the net, how to serve the ball, and where to stand on the court. Then we were ready to hit the ball back and forth over the net. "I got to pass to the others," pointed out Mario. "I probably should not have tried to hit it so hard," said the aptly nicknamed Powerful Paddler, who still did an excellent job. "I hit the ball over the net!" said Harry Potter, who flew around the court like someone on a broom. "It's fun! I like pickle-ball," stated Heavy Metal Jalapeño, seemingly summing up the entire group's feelings. Thanks Coaches Courtney and Mary! Hopefully we can do it again soon!
