Destin, Florida, - 2/23/12

Pickleball is the game that has caught the eye of more than a couple of dozen snowbirds that gather each Wednesday and Friday at the Destin Community Center for a friendly game.

“It’s just taken off,” said Phil Holdsworth of Ontario, who is coordinator for the game.

FULL COURT: The Destin Community Center has three courts open for Pickleball play and all were busy.

Holdsworth commended the crew at the Destin Community Center for providing the courts, nets and paddles and setting up the game.

“They have been absolutely wonderful,” he said. When he asked about setting up the game, “there were no questions … they just got to it with no hesitation.”

Pickleball is played at 10:30 a.m. until noon on Wednesday and Friday at the community center. For more information, call 654-5184.
