The Landings Club hosted the second annual Special Pops Allstate/David Pence Pickleball Open on Saturday and Sunday — the largest pickleball tournament in Savannah (GA).
Players from the Savannah area comprised about half of the field of 150 competitors, reflecting the growing popularity of the sport in the area. Savannah players also medaled in 11 of the 13 competitive divisions in men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles.
Other players came from the state, South Carolina, Florida and other parts of the Southeast as well as a few from as far away as Michigan and Ohio.
This tournament, sponsored by Allstate/David Pence Insurance Agency, was a fundraiser for the Savannah chapter of Special Pops (short for special populations). The program supports individuals in the community with intellectual challenges.
