Imagine a racquet sport that combines all the elements of paddle tennis, ping-pong, and badminton and you would have the latest sports craze known as pickleball. This new sport has caught on with the over fifty crowd and that is probably because it combines many of the elements of other sports fifty somethings enjoyed in years back while growing up. The sport is played on a court with the same dimensions as a doubles badminton court. The net is similar to a tennis net, but is mounted two inches lower. The game is played with a hard paddle and a polymer whiffle ball.

Playing in the final of the Fluvanna Christmas Bash Tournament, the Flying Fluco boys basketball team eased into a five point lead after three quarters on Friday (Dec 28). But, the Flucos could not finish off the Hornets from Orange County. Orange buried three, three point shots in the final quarter and rallied for a 42-39 win. It is the second year in a row that the Flucos have lost in the final of their own tournament. This loss was to an AAA school, so the Flucos were playing up in this contest. After the game, Coach Munro Rateau noted that “they made their shots and we didn’t, and that is what wins basketball games.” He also noted that his young squad “still doesn’t have the killer instinct.” Rateau’s team is, however, 8-2 on the season, which is not bad.

The Board voted unanimously to hire an Emergency Services Coordinator and to contract with a provider to support the county’s volunteer staff 12 hours a day. The person would be hired by March. The vote followed a sometimes contentious debate.
