Recreation Calendar for 1/30

The Fresno BeeJanuary 30, 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.
