Fruits:

I was looking for something more interesting than just peaches or plums that begin with “p” for our fruit. I think I found it!

Fun:
Paddle ball is a one-person game played with a paddle and an attached ball. Using the flat paddle with the small rubber ball attached at the center via an elastic string, the player tries to hit the ball with the paddle in succession as many times as possible.

In 1996, Brian Eichhorst became California State’s first paddle ball champion, beating out Vincent D’Antoni,in an edge of your seat cage match.

I haven’t played paddle ball in years! I remember how fun it was to get a new paddle ball. This was also a frustrating game. It was fun getting the ball going but then the ball would seem to have a mind of it’s own and just start going everywhere.
