Pickleball is a paddleball sport that combines elements of badminton, table tennis, racquetball and tennis. Most often there are four
players although it can be played with two. It uses solid paddles made of a composite material to hit a perforated polymer ball that resembles a wiffle ball.
It is played on 1/2 the size of a tennis court. While rallying the ball over a 34’’ net, 11 points take the win, but must be 2 points more than the opponent.
I started playing in February 2020. It's an easy sport to learn, and anyone can play. We have players of all age's, shapes and sizes. We even have players that have had double hip replacements! But don't fool yourself, there is a big element of strategy so it's anyone's game. Best of all, just show up with a paddle in hand and you're ready to play! Pickleball players love to welcome new players and they are
happy to teach you the game. I take my paddle with me when I travel, it's easy to take along and I always find a c; ...

Hurricane season officially kicked off on June 1st and goes through November 30th. Hurricanes can seem scary but being prepared will help keep your family and property safe. When a storm is approaching and becomes a potential threat to your area, the National Weather Service will issue watches and warnings to keep you up to date on how to prepare.
A "hurricane watch" indicates the possibility that you could experience hurricane conditions within 36 hours. This watch should trigger your family's disaster plan and protective measures should be taken, especially those actions that require extra time such as securing a boat, leaving a barrier island, etc. Many of us live on a barrier island which means we need to start preparing now, if not sooner.
A "hurricane warning" indicates that sustained winds of at least 74 mph are expected within 24 hours. Once this warning has been issued, your family should be in the process of completing protective actions and deciding the safest lo ...
