Letter (goskagit.com): A pickleball takeover
Feb 1, 2019
What’s this that’s been taking over the town?
Insidiously, while we weren’t even looking, our quiet, happy routines have been disrupted by a growing menace. Whether it’s a nice walk in the park or a simple game of tennis, our lives are increasingly being dominated by pickleball.
From the noisy sound of the pickle (or whatever the ball is called) banging off the comically oversized paddles, to the lack of decorum from the near retirees who can’t seem to remember that you …. wait …. until a point is over before loudly strolling across the court you are playing on, the game is methodically destroying the civic joys that we all take for granted.
Fellow citizens, rise up, and extinguish this scourge before it consumes us all.
