Mr. Pickleball Turns 90

Tom Lowrie is “Mr. Pickleball.”

A tireless promoter of the game — and the driving force behind the Compo Beach courts — the longtime Westporter turned 90 years old on Tuesday.

Naturally, he celebrated it with pickles — er, pickleball.

About 30 picklers showed up to honor Tom. And they gave the new nonagenarian a great gift: a pickleball bench in memory of his wife Jean, who died just a few months ago.

A pickleball cake for Tom Lowrie.

Tom had a great time, with his many pickleball friends.

Then he went right back to work, pushing for more courts, clinics and programs for Westport picklers of all ages.
