1) Garry Morehouse is canvassing the Pickleball community in Central Ontario to see if there is enough interest to hold a 70's + tourney mixed or mens/women's. If there is enough interest it would be held at the Midland outdoor pickleball courts at Tiffin Park. Date (likely September) and details to be provided later.
So, if you are 70 or over and would be interested in a recreational tourney, please let Bev Greenwood know at: firstname.lastname@example.org . Please respond by June 4st . Thanks
2) Pickleball Association of Ontario Champs at the 2018 US Pickleball Championships
Team, so excited to let you know that during the US Open Pickleball Championships (Wimbledon of tennis) held April 21 to April 28, 2018 in Naples, Florida 2,500 participants from 17 countries played and many of our Ontario clubs and facilities members won!!!
I am hoping you can post or email this note. A future PAO star maybe playing right now in your pickleball program.
