HAYDENVILLE – Jen Skaggs, foreground, of Belchertown serves during a game of pickleball with, from left, Chuck Miller of Haydenville, Ned Griefen of Westhampton and Elizabeth Silver of Florence on the Ellen Ames Field courts in Haydenville on Monday morning. Miller, with some help, has been using a single-stage snowthrower with a soft rubber paddle to clear the courts after each snowfall so the group hasn’t had to pause from the sport this winter.
