Ken Calkin, The Godfather of Athens Pickleball, gave a brief history of the start and growth of Pickleball in Athens. (Read the full history here.) At the end of his talk, his son Jamie presented Ken with a paddle that was designed by Jamie and printed by Prolite so it can be used on the courts. In addition to the history lesson we were introduced to the head of Parks and Recreation, voted on two by-law revisions, received Pickleball car magnets, received an update on the 2022 Pickled Peach Classic, and signed a petition to get more Pickleball courts in Athens. Please see Tom McEnaney to add your name to the petition.
