Do you enjoy playing pickleball? There are four outdoor pickleball courts at Fermi and two outdoor courts at Mark Twain available from dawn to dusk. Pickleball courts are for use on a first-come, first-“served” basis but most mornings you will find an informal group there to join if you like. Pickleball equipment is available for loan at the Senior Center.
