After years of work, this suburban Boynton (FL) community has a new sport

Published December 18, 2015 -

Bob Versalie says he was a “pretty decent” tennis player until the day he hurt his shoulder.

At about the same time, someone told him about the game of pickleball. He did some research, found a local couple who gave lessons, and visited friends in the northern part of the state whose development had pickleball courts.


Versalie, 84, learned that regardless of his injury, he can play the sport.

That was more than two years ago. The Coral Lakes resident has been championing for pickleball courts at the suburban Boynton Beach community since then and he is happy to say this month they celebrated the courts’ opening with a ribbon cutting.
