Pickleball comes to tennis center November 2012

Cindy Moore, who learned to play the sport in Arizona, is hoping to help the sport become a part of the sporting landscape in LaGrange.

A few weeks ago, with the help of some other pickleball-playing friends, Moore began offering free clinics at the McCluskey Tennis Center.

Moore, a long-time tennis player, said she was hooked from the first time she tried pickleball about six years ago.

“I was a tennis player, and still am,” Moore said. “I’d play tennis, and go play a little pickleball. And then it got to be more pickleball and less tennis. And it’s gotten more and more. It’s just addictive.”

Now, Moore serves as a Georgia ambassador for the US Pickleball Association, and it’s a role she takes seriously as she looks to introduce the sport to as many people as possible.
