Still life in the old boys!

In July Geoff Piper, 1958–1966 Allan and John Taylor, 1965–1967 Allan, went to the German Open International Pickleball tournament in Essen with others from Cranbook. If you have never heard of pickleball: google it, a fabulous game. There were 320 players from 25 countries participating and play was grouped by age and skill level.

John and Geoff won gold medals for the 70+ group. The following day, John won gold again in the mixed doubles 60+ group playing with partner Ann Furminger, wife of John Furminger, former teacher.

Keep rockin!
