Beverly Bootstrapsgets pickleball court donation | Local news




BEVERLY As the Executive Director of Beverly Bootstraps, Sue Gabriel has accepted donations in a variety of situations. This week was the first time she got one on a pickleball court.

A group of local pickleball players handed Bootstraps a donation of $ 520 at Susan Carnevale’s Beverly home or more specifically, on her backyard pickleball field.

“We have a lot of people who help us in many different ways, but this was one of the most fun,” said Gabriel.

Carnevale said the money was raised through a raffle to win lessons from Zorano Tubo, a New York pickleball teacher who came to Beverly and Salem to teach classes over the Columbus Day weekend. Tubo herself was a big contributor, she said. He “attended” the event virtually via a large television screen set up next to the Carnevale court.

Carnevale said she became addicted to pickleball, a paddleball sport that combines badminton, table tennis, and tennis after visiting a friend at The Villages in Florida, a retirement community with more than 100 pickleball courts. She came home and started painting lines in a court behind her house.

“It’s an addictive sport,” said Joe Lyman of Peabody, a USA Pickleball district ambassador who attended the ceremony. “It has seen incredible growth over the past 10 years.”

In accepting the donation, Gabriel said Bootstraps is busier than ever due to the fallout from the pandemic. The social service has a food pantry and provides case management services to those in need.

“We’ve been around for almost 30 years and needless to say, I currently think our work is more important than ever,” she said.
