On July 13th, our Summer Day Camp members participated in a paddleball clinic at P.O. Serrano Playground on Lafayette Avenue. The kids had the chance to learn the rules and techniques of paddleball from the President of The Paddleball Family Alliance, Mike Melendez. The kids enjoyed the clinic and said they felt inspired to pick up paddleball as a sport. One of our members stated; "I went home and told my father, "daddy, can we go buy paddleball equipment? This is a really interesting sport and I want to rebuild the memory with you." She added that her father played paddleball in college. Thank you Paddleball Family Alliance for giving our members exposure to this forgotten pastime and a wonderful experience!
