"Yes, pickleball is great I just learned it from my sister in law we played last week, I played today with my family it's a great sport," said Rick Kornfeld, Kingston.

"Definitely I think it's fun which is the number one thing that you're looking for in a new year's resolution you want to be able to stick with it," said Tess Kornfeld, New York.

"It's definitely an opportunity to meet new people make new friends and have people say see you tomorrow on the court and you will say yes and then you will have to come back," said Tess.
