Holiday Smash Pickleball Round-Up
November 22, 2014 - Carolina Courts, Concord, NC

Over 120 Pickleball enthusiasts from the Atlantic South Region participated in the 1st Annual Holiday Smash Pickleball Tournament and Holiday Food Drive. Carolina Courts, the indoor host, was chosen because of the superior facilities which included over 80,000 square feet of indoor space, restrooms and a snack bar. Pickleball teams participated in a Round Robin tournament whereby each team plays each over 5 or more matches then plays a "head to head" match to determine bracket or age group winners. Carolina Courts has been chosen by the United States Pickleball Association (USAPA) to host the upcoming Atlantic South Pickleball Regionals scheduled for March of 2015. Local pickleball clubs from Bailey’s Glen Subdivision, Cornelius NC, and Sun City Carolina Lakes along with North Carolina USAPA Regional Pickleball Ambassadors provided volunteer support for the tournament. Special thanks to our Bailey's Glen and Sun City Pickleball volunteers.
