Local teams showed well at the second annual Abbotsford Pickleball Tournament, held last month at Abbotsford Recreation Centre.

The duo of Rhys Martel and Mike Shepherd won silver in the men's doubles under-55 category, while Elaine Griffiths and Kathy Parkes (ladies doubles 55-plus) and George Pool and Ganbat Tsend (men's doubles under-55) won bronze.

Pickleball, a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton and tennis, is said to be one of the fastest-growing sports in North America.
