I want to thank all of the volunteers, sponsors, players and all of the club members who made our In-House tournament a huge success over the last two days.
Susan and I followed the tournament through The Den app on our computer, watching the brackets progress and while it wasn’t the same as being there, we were able to enjoy it.
Verlin Chalmers took control of the tournament from the very beginning and using the new Pickleball Den program, ran one of the smoothest events that I have ever seen. Verlin was the person who has spent the last 10 months learning, installing, signing people up, running ladders and so much more. This tournament truly could not have run without Verlin’s oversight and leadership.
Thanks to our sponsors:
Nancy Muslin of Long Realty (provided all of the water)
Mike and Cheri Cameron of Home Smart Realty
Laura Fenton Kovanda (Gear Box paddles and clothing)
Desert Sun Embroidery (provided the tournament t-shirts)
A big THANK YOU goes out to all of the volunteers (too numerous to mention) who spent hours helping out wherever needed. You will be receiving a 2023 monitor credit for all of your hard work.
To all of the players and medal winners, Congratulations and I hope that you had a fun experience. We are collecting all of the pictures that were taken and will have them posted on the club’s website soon.
We are still adding up the money received from the raffle, donations, food sales and sponsors and should have a total amount of what we will be giving to St Mary’s Food Bank shortly.
Again, I can’t tell you how proud I am of the entire pickleball club for making this event such a huge success
