Battle of the Paddle Tournament: FINAL NOTES and PICTURES

Hurricane Ian was bearing down on us Friday and just when we thought the weekend tournament was going to be called off due to rain, Saturday and Sunday were beautiful! The sellout crowd of players came out bright and early Saturday morning starting at 8 am. They kicked off the tournament with pickleball skills. Break for pizza at midday. More pickleball skills in the afternoon. And tournament pickleball throughout Sunday.

Special thanks to Scott Hettinger for all his efforts and planning. Thanks to all of the captains that organized their teams: Kathy Rollins, Kathy McArthur, Laurie Morgan, and Cindy Hettinger.

Also thanks to Carolyn Gaziano for taking all the action photos.

We have a nice selection of photos below that you can click through. There are many more photos available by clicking on the link that goes to Google photos:
