Pickleball is a paddleboard sport combining elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis. Those looking for a place to play this sport need look no further than Gloucester. Gary O’Neil, shown here with his wife, Darcy, received permission from Gloucester High School to tape pickleball lines on one of the school’s tennis courts. He is trying to spread the word that there’s now a pickleball court in town, and he is available to teach people the rules and show them the basics of the game. His ultimate goal is to get enough people interested so that there’s a league in Gloucester. For more information on playing pickleball or taking part in a league, call O’Neil at 757-810-8031. Those interested should leave a message for him.
