The Athens Area Pickleball Association is hosting the 3rd Pickled Peach Valentine Classic Tournament at The Classic Center Friday through Sunday.
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 been very supportive of AAPA and the promotion of pickleball in the Athens area.”
