The 2nd Annual Mayberry Pickleball Tournament was held this past weekend in Mount Airy, NC. The tournament attracted 90+ players from across the state of North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia & South Carolina. All proceeds from the tournament benefitted the Surry County Health Foundation which funds community-health related projects.
Tournament Co-Director, Jack Moore, stated “This was our second tournament and it was a huge success! We appreciate the support from the community and their sponsorship. The two “Meet & Greets” were a blast! It was fun hearing all the laughter, jokes and tall-tales!!”
“Feedback from our participants was positive and we are already planning how to make next year’s event even better. The quality of players was outstanding and we appreciate everyone’s enthusiastic support.” All First Place winners received a granite award. Moore further stated, “We wanted to provide them (the tournament winners) with a unique award to commemorate their stay in Mount Airy. Since our city is noted for having the world’s largest open-faced granite quarry and our nickname is “the Granite City”, so we thought a granite award was fitting.”
