Pickleball is taking Bellaire by storm. The game has been around since the 1960s, but has recently grown in popularity. Bellaire residents Mary Goodman, Carol Beittenmiller, Sabrina Gee, and Dena Robinson (pictured, from left) have picked up the sport and play on the tennis courts at the Bellaire Rec Center. Carol has been playing several times each week for the last several months with a group of five, including Kristi Coffey, and they have since introduced other friends and friends’ husbands to the game. New pickleball players are joining in on a regular basis. (See For the Love of Pickleball, by Karen Vine Fuller.)
