Recreation calendar for 1/16

The Fresno BeeJanuary 15, 2014 

John Browning returns a shot during a doubles match of pickleball at his home. The game is a hybrid of tennis, badminton and ping pong. The game is popular among older athletes, because it features less movement and thus strain on body joints.
