Paletas for Lunch?

Delicia Gipson and Dennis Leonardo (both MFD) spend their workdays in the Document Control department (A&E, Bldg. 40). They are always looking for ways to have fun and burn calories. In the beginning, they played Frisbee but now they spend their lunch time on The Green playing Paletas. This two-player sport originated on the beaches of Brazil. A tennis ball is struck back and forth between the two players using Paleta paddles. The object of the game is to keep the ball up; it can not hit the ground. If, while you are playing, the ball lands at your feet, your opponent scores a point. Gipson and Leonardo never really keep score—they only look forwards to the physical challenge and activity.        (Photo by Diana Rogers)
