So the first pickleball U.S. Open (pro/am) tournament ever is playing out later this week in Naples, Florida. It’ll provide $$$ for the pro winners and national recognition for all. Locals are represented in the form of Marcin Rozpedski (The Lakes CC) and Morgan Evans (Shadow Mountain CC). They’re play together in the pro doubles and probably against each other in the pro singles. Also, our inter-club league organizer, Barbara Weintraub, plays in the women’s doubles. And my Del Rey Beach, Florida, younger brother has entered two doubles events. We’ll be reporting results as the week goes on, with some new videos of exciting matches, and I understand that CBS will broadcast some of it.
In the meantime, let’s get out and play some pickleball ourselves. The weather will be cooler for open play at these times:
Monday @ 4-6pm
Wednesday @ 4-6pm
Thursday @ 5:30-7pm
Saturday @ 3-5pm
