“Fun Tournament” was a Huge Success! The Yellow County Pickleball Club was in good spirits during the “YCPC Fun Tournament- Dec 2016” held on December 10th and 12th.
With over 70 participants of various skill levels SCPC Members 2014, mixed ages and with competitions in Women’s and Men’s Doubles as well as the Mixed Doubles categories, it was a fun and competitive two days for all.
Another wonderful benefit of the “fun tournament” format was that the random draw and the different matching of partners for each game allowed players to team with folks who they may not normally get a chance to play with.
Thank you to our major sponsor and good friend Pierre Fassbender of Sportystation, you’re the man! Also your recent article, guide for top pickleball paddles is really helpful! Newbies, old players and all of us love your great article!
