PICKLEBALL TOURNAMENT REMINDER
Just a last reminder to all members and pickleball players that there is less than a week left to get the early registration price for The National Senior Games National Tournament in Cleveland, Ohio this summer. The pickleball competition dates are Sunday, July 28-Thursday, August 1, with an open practice day on Saturday, July 27. Get on board for a fun filled week of pickleball, entertainment, and socialization with all your pickleball friends. The USAPA will have a booth courtside where you can get your membership up to date, buy some new fancy USAPA products, and talk with the USAPA President about concerns and interest in your association.
My wife Nancy and I attended the games in 2007 held in Louisville, Ky., and in 2011 held in Houston, Texas. We put on pickleball demonstrations for two weeks at each of these games and can tell you it was a great experience. We got to attend many of the events and really enjoyed ourselves. Hopefully you will join the 200+ of us who have already registered for this historic pickleball event. USAPA has worked hard over the past several years to get pickleball included in this national event. It will be a historic event for pickleball.
For information on places to stay and transportation go to: http://www.nsga.com/We have been informed that many of the pickleball players attending will be staying at the Holiday Inn Express in downtown Cleveland, which is only a couple of blocks from the convention center where pickleball will be played.
Also put on your calendar the dates of November 11–-17, 2013 for the USAPA National Tournament in Buckeye, AZ. There will be more to come on our website in the next couple of weeks.
See you in Cleveland.
