Queen Charlotte got a mention in the most recent issue of the Pickleball Canada monthly newsletter. Charlotte players Fran Fowler and George Farrell were recognized for travelling all the way to Kamloops this summer to compete in the BC Senior Summer Games. “George and Fran live 60 km off the coast of northwest BC in Queen Charlotte City,” the newsletter wrote. “They learned about Pickleball from watching Youtube.” According to the national organization, pickleball is the “fastest growing sport in North America” and Pickleball Canada boasts 650 members. The newsletter went on to explain that Queen Charlotte pickleballers play twice a week in the high school gym, and also on an outdoor court. The two competitors had a lot of fun at the Summer Games and learned more about player ratings. They hope to return to the BC Senior Summer Games with more players in the summer of 2014, when the games will be held in Langley.
