A total of 110 pickleball players from across South Florida recently participated in the 27th Annual Delray Beach Senior Games, a qualifier for the Florida Senior Games State Championships, which will be held Dec. 3-11, in Clearwater.
While the 2016 edition of the Delray Beach Senior Games was dominated by pickleball play at Pompey Park, 1102, NW Second St., and Delray Beach Community Center, 50 NW First Ave, events for basketball skills, billiards, bowling, Croquet, golf, swimming, racewalk and track & field, took place at venues across Boca Raton, Boynton Beach and West Palm Beach.
“I started playing pickleball about two years ago. I would describe pickleball as mix of tennis, ping pong and racquetball,” said Jack Donadio, a resident of Palm Isles in Boynton Beach. “Pickleball is easier on my knees than tennis. I play about three times a week.”
Donadio won two medals in the competition.
