'Anybody can play ' Pickleballers flock to play popular sport

Published January 23, 2016 -

DESTIN — Locals and snowbirds gathered Saturday to play a game or two of pickleball at Destin United Methodist Church.

“The sport was introduced to us about four years ago here by a snowbird,” said Colon Terrell, the Emerald Coast Florida District Ambassador to the USA Pickleball Association.

Terrell teaches beginners every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:15 a.m. to noon year-round in the church’s Life Center.

“It is a fast-growing sport with 400,000 pickleball association members, and it has already been entered to the seniors Olympics,” he said.
