The Mahurangi pickleballers were taught a lesson when the Whangarei team came down to Mahurangi College on their annual exchange recently.
This was the third exchange over the past few years and the northern team was younger, faster and fitter, winning this match 44-18 with two matches drawn.
Only a few locals scored many wins, with the best performers being Neil Collings and Bev Billington, who won six of their eight matches.
This fun competitive day finished with a feast at Sue and Dave Chittenden’s place. Club days continue weekly at Mahurangi College on Sundays 2-4pm and Tuesday evenings 7-9pm.
