Pickleball picking up steam

Published January 22, 2015 -

SEBRING — Clayton Farrar, chair of the Tanglewood Winter Classic Pickleball Tournament, announced recently that plans are well underway for the third edition of the event.

The age brackets have changed from previous years. They are now 19 to 49, 50 to 59, 60 to 69 and 70 and over. Doubles teams entering must play in the age grouping of the younger player.

In order to encourage new players to try the tournament experience, Clayton is urging beginners to sign up in the 2.5 skill level where they will meet up with other similarly skilled players. Partners must play in the skill level of the better player. There will be competition at each level: 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5 and 5.0. Those rated 5.0 are the highest-rated players.
