I am well aware that pickleball has started to take over some of the parks in Rochester, Minnesota.  I know because my kid is on the courts quite a bit with his friends.  He LOVES this sport and it is just amazing to see how many people are also out for a few games.  If pickleball is one of your favs too, you are going to love the event that is happening on October 14th at the Mayo Civic Center!
