Running Lights Takes Rochester

Hold onto your paddles, folks! The Running Lights Team just took the trip of a lifetime up to the Valenti Picklebarn in Rochester, New York. Keep reading to hear all about our adventure! 🏓 🥒

Where Paddles Meet Thunder

Imagine a barn—no, not your average hay-and-horses kind of barn. This one’s got sunbeams streaming through the rafters, pickleball courts buzzing, and a vibe that screams, “Game on!” Welcome to the Valenti Picklebarn in Penfield, New York.

The Backstory

Back in 1941, this barn was rebuilt after burning down. Like a phoenix with a wicked backhand, it rose from the flames stronger than before. Paul and his wife, Amanda, moved into the barn in 2015 and immediately got to work turning into a slice of pickleball heaven!

Paddle Battles and Touch Tennis

At the Valenti Picklebarn, the Running Lights team showed up for some friendly competition. Pickleball—a delightful blend of tennis, badminton, and ping pong—had everyone laughing and sweating. And then there was touch tennis—a fast-paced, dynamic game that kept everyone on their toes. The Valenti family proved to be formidable opponents! 🎾
