Players gather almost every day in Destin to play pickleball, a cross between table tennis and badminton.

The sport has gained popularity in the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village in recent years thanks to the snowbirds, who flock to Destin during the winter months.

During the summer, games are played Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Destin Community Center and then on Tuesday and Thursday at the Life Center at Destin United Methodist Church.

Cost to play is $2 an outing. To find out more about the summer schedule for pickleball, call the Destin Community Center at 654-5184
