Local residents win medals in pickleball at NC State Senior Games

Published November 6, 2014 -

Linda Kidd of Norlina and Stanley Brothers of Lake Gaston found success in pickleball competition at the recent State Senior Games, bringing home gold and bronze medals, respectively.

Both have been playing pickleball regularly at courts in Warren County since local pickleball began almost four years ago. The sport combines tennis, ping-pong and badminton and is played with a wiffle ball slightly larger than a baseball.

At the regional level, Kidd won gold in women's singles for the 70-74 age group, and Brothers won silver in men's singles and bronze in men's doubles in the 70-74 age group.
