The Villages Hosts Paddle Camp for Grandparents and Teenagers

July 7, 2017
The Villages, Florida

At The Villages in Florida, paddle spans the generations. This is the fourth summer that clinics have been offered to grandparents and their teenage grandchildren. On June 29, seventeen teens and their grandparents took part in this two-hour instructional camp.  Paddle is gaining in popularity at The Villages, and as thousands of new homes there are scheduled for construction, the potential for new players continues to rise.
