The pictures below of the Riverwood Pickleball Club were taken at their very first in house pickleball tournament at the Del Webb Community in Ponte Vedra, Florida. 

The pickleball courts were just opened at this community back in July of 2011, but on December 4th - pickleball was in full force, with a blind draw, double elimination tournament.

The winners are pictured below:

Men first place-Ric Porter and Bob Dean
Men 2nd place-Lin Smith and Jack Shober

Women first place -Beverly Lovings and Diane Solms
Women 2nd place-Maureen Naldzin and  Judy Dean

Mixed first place- David Herring and Linda Kracker
Mixed 2nd place-Michael Dudley and Judy Dean

 "Everyone had a great time and displayed excellent sportsmanship. I am very pleased with the way everyone has progressed here after only 6 months."

This Del Webb communtiy is still growing, and there are only about 260 homes so far in the entire community.  So to reach 50 pickleball members in their club in such a short time is fantastic.  Congratulations to Bob and the entire Pickleball Club.

Here, Bob presents Carole Dominick with a free pickleball paddle as the 50th member of their club. I
