A crowd of onlookers watched Tuesday as Mississippi Speaker of the House Philip Gunn hit a mean serve at Vicksburg’s pickleball courts at Halls Ferry Park.
Gunn was in town to play a friendly game of pickleball with two men from Sarasota Fla., Dean Matt and Shannon Yeager, who are trying to set a world record for playing a pickleball game in 48 states in less than 48 days. Rounding out the foursome was Ward 2 Alderman Alex Monsour.
