The deadline for registering for the "Battle of the Bray" Pickleball Classic in Bradenton, FL is Thursday, January 7, 2016. Around 200 players are expected to participate in this age/skill level tournament on January 16 and 17.
Thanks to the Bradenton Area Sports Commission's sponsorship many of the players will receive a special Tervis Tumbler water bottle as their award in addition to a custom-made dry-fit shirt.
Please join us at the Players Pickleball Social at R.J. Gators (located at 6100 Cortez Road West) on Friday, January 15, from 6:00-8:00pm. Dinner is on your own but all beverages are free except alcoholic beverages.
A "Suncoast Club Champions Banner" will be presented to the Pickleball Club that registers the most pickleball players and those players do well in the tournament. Past winners include: Kings Point in Sun City and Englewood.

More exciting news is that the Suncoast Pickleball Association will be adding a 2.5 beginners division playing a round robin format (more fun/less intimidating) for all its tournaments starting in February 2016.
