Pickled Peach Valentine Classic Pickleball Tournament


The Athens Area Pickleball Association will be hosting the 3rd Pickled Peach Valentine Classic Tournament at The Classic Center February 10-12, 2017.

Pickleball is a combination sport of ping-pong, tennis and badminton played on a miniature tennis court with an oversized paddle and a ball that is similar to a whiffle ball.

“We are thrilled to have so much support from the community and all of our sponsors,” said co-chair Diane Carroll.

“Our main goal is to generate funds in hope of acquiring a dedicated pickleball venue and court in our community,” co-chair Iva King explains. “The Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services has certainly helped in getting our sport out in view of the public.”
