The Sun City Grand Pickleball Club will be hosting the first ever Super Senior International Pickleball Association Tournament on March 21 – 23, 2017. This Tournament is a USAPA sanctioned event.

We will need volunteers for this tournament. Members who volunteer will get a monitor credit for every 3 hours they work. Volunteers are needed for posting scores, manning the snack table, First aid, and shuttle drivers to transport players from the Grace Church (there will be no parking at the courts due to limited parking) at the corner of Mountain View and Shadow Mountain. If you are interested in being a shuttle driver contact Sharon Navratil at 602-430-0820. If you are interested in volunteering for one of the other positions, contact Marlene Berwald at 219-688-3022.

This will be a great opportunity to attract people to our beautiful community and view our new Pickleball Facility.
