Why So Good

It's easy to learn and you'll quickly improve. It's outdoors, it's healthy, it's active, it's not exhausting! It's good for almost any age, it requires strategy, it keeps your mind alert. It's social, you get out, you make new friends and you may get to have a glass of wine. Enough said? And it’s different from what everyone else is doing!
