Passion for Pickleball
During the month of January, our students learned about the game of pickleball from a dear supporter of our Academy, Mr. Karl Reuther. Reuther shared with the students the techniques, rules, and strategies for this fun sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. The sport has been around since the 1960s and is making a comeback thanks to local folks like Mr. Reuther. It was invented in the State of Washington by Joel Pritchard, who would eventually make Marietta, Ohio his home. Thank you, Mr. Reuther for sharing your passion for pickleball with our students!
