Pickle Ball

Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the USA.
Checkout Google with “pickleball”, lots of info and videos.

We usually play doubles on the small pickleball court situated between
our OCA building and the Ozello Island Church.
We play at the approval of the church on their court and the church is
not liable for our use of the court.
If we can get at least four players for a doubles game we generally play
at 8 am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Other days and times are always open for discussion.
If anyone is interested call me at 954-309-3183.
