Month: December 2016

On Saturday, December 11, USAPA ambassadors Mario Najera and Geri Grodzinsky hosted a holiday potluck lunch and an afternoon of open play at the newly resurfaced courts at the Bally’s Casino pickelball complex. Each Thursday they also host an organized round robin event that only costs $3 to enter. It’s a super popular event with local players of all skills. If you’d like to get more information on this and other District events you’re invited to join the Southern Nevada District Meetup group.

A big “Ooh Rah” goes to the Sun City Summerlin pickleball club for hosting their 1st ever tournament. The tournament was a fund raiser for the Marines “Toys for Tots” charity which netted more than $2,000. The Sun City Summerlin courts are brand new and what an awesome way for the club to kick off play with a charity tournament for such an awesome cause! We hear that it will be an annual event, so we hope to see lots more players next year in early December.
