Pickleball league spreading the sport - February 21, 2013, Avon Park, FL

Majick has worked to reintroduce the concept of crosstown rivalry that exists at the high school level by starting the South Central Florida Pickleball League.

The league has five teams: Highlands Ridge, Tanglewood, Riverbend (LaBelle), Lake Ashton (Lake Wales) and Del Webb (Haines City). Majick has purposely restricted the number of teams, as he knows how busy seniors are and wants to ensure that the teams are able to fulfill their playing commitments.

The league provides an avenue for players to move from the recreational to the competitive level by allowing stronger players to compete. Majick feels this has enabled all involved to improve their skills.
