Ron has been playing pickleball for 6 years and is an advanced skill level player. He is 72 years old and retired from a career of oceanography which involved studying undersea volcanoes. Ron played and taught tennis lessons for Parks & Rec and now teaches pickleball. Although he has played many sports, pickleball is his favorite because it is easy to learn and incorporates good exercise and enjoyable social interaction. Currently there are 63 players in the local play group which started in the fall of 2014. Pickleball is a sport for all ages and Ron feels that everyone should give it a try to see if it is for them.
