Local pickleball teams face tough competition

Published February 27, 2016 -

Last Thursday, Lake Ashton traveled to Highlands Ridge for the final regular season meeting. Going into the final set Highlands Ridge was ahead 23 to 17 under the leadership of Gary Schinderle and Mickey Dorman. However, the Lake Ashton team swept the all-important final set to take a 44-23 victory over Highlands Ridge.

Tanglewood visited Del Webb on Saturday and took a beating. Bob Hoffman, captain of the Del Webb team reports that, despite the lopsided 58 to 9 win by his team, “the score does not reflect how close and exciting this meeting was”. Hoffman went on to say that “the final round, although swept by Del Webb, was the best competition of the day with two matches going to three games.” The home team’s top three pairings won all four of their matches. Tanglewood returned home to work on their strategy for the upcoming “shootout”.

On Saturday, March 5, Tanglewood will host Highlands Ridge, Del Webb and Lake Ashton in the sixth annual round robin championship referred to as the “shootout.” Highlands Ridge won the 2013 and 2015 shootouts while Tanglewood took top honors in 2014.
