Introduction To Pickleball To Be Held Tuesday, February 16, 2014, Newnan, GA

Fred Fahy was literally in a pickle — a pickleball pickle.
After moving north from Florida, as much to be closer to family including his granddaughters, one of which Northgate High soccer player Emily Yarbrough, Fahy found himself without access to a lesser-known sport inside Georgia.
So Fahy did the next best thing. He found a way to help bring it to Coweta County.
After obtaining a grant from the United States Pickleball Association for the purchase of equipment and contacting the Coweta Recreation Department, Fahy will host an introductory meeting on Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the facility’s gym at the Temple Ave./Hospital Road complex with hopes of seeing the tennis/badminton hybrid flourish in this area as well.
