Getting Active with Pickleball

Pickleball at the Y Credits: Summit Area YMCA

At the Summit Area YMCA, we are dedicated to ensuring that individuals of all ages have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. For adults and seniors, taking up pickleball as a sport ​provides not only healthy exercise and activity, but also allows for positive social interaction. According to the AARP Foundation website Connect2Affect, 17% of adults ages 65 and older are isolated, with 26% of adults with increased risk of death due to subjective feeling of loneliness. In playing pickleball, adults and seniors are able to form fun, meaningful relationships both in and outside of the YMCA while being active and achieving health goals together.

Pickle ball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels! The rules are simple and the game is easy to learn. Come and play with YMCA friends!

Parting Advice from Four Decades on the Front Lines of Local News

November 11, 2017

In February 1978 I walked into the office of The Rahway News-Record and Clark Patriot to begin what I thought was to be a short-term job stepping stone. 

Instead, it turned out to be a nearly 40-year odyssey in local journalism—including the last eight—overwhelmingly great—years with The Alternative Press (TapInto.Net).

I have decided it is time to spend more time in ...

I Reported It Myself!

Each year there seems to be more schools relying on self-reported test scores and transcripts on their applications.  While they may, in the long run, streamline the application process I’ve seen them cause a good amount of stress during this already stressful process.  Should an optional test score self-report be filled in?  How do I know whether to mark my class as a ...
