Pickleball has taken off in Dawson County, and who better to teach a new crop of local athletes the secrets of the game than the world’s best senior player? Scott Moore, currently ranked the No. 1 senior pickleball player in the world, hosted two fundamental pickleball clinics April 24 at Rock Creek Park to give a select group of pickleball enthusiasts his principles and techniques to enhance their gameplay. “There’s a lot of things about pickleball that are counter intuitive and so we can help kind of shortcut the learning process for people by teaching them not just the skills and the strategy but also a framework of how to build a good, solid pickleball foundation,” Moore said. The 57-year-old self-professed “racket sport junkie” that’s played almost every racket sport ever invented, first picked up his pickleball paddle six years ago.
