Pickleball in Europe!

Jodi was home from Czechoslovakia visiting her parents two years ago.  They were introducing her to pickleball at Whistlestop.  Jodi became addicted to the game and wanted to share the sport with her community overseas.   Grand Rapids Pickleball Club sent her home with a net, some paddles and pickleballs.   Jodi has reached out to children and adults to teach them about pickleball.  Her friend Lenka and she are working with others in Europe to form an organization similar to our USAPA.
Jodi was back in Grand Rapids in June.  She wanted to play in the Meijer Games.   She was acknowledged with a Gold Medal for all she has done and continues to do to promote the sport of pickleball.
