Summerland Pickleball Club members participate in the 2018 Seniors Tournament

Last weekend five members of the Summerland Pickleball Club participated in the first annual Super Seniors Tournament hosted by the brand new West Kelowna Pickleball Club.  Ten beautiful courts were brimming with activity as players from various communities competed in doubles and mixed doubles.

In addition to a bronze and a silver medal, both won by Gwen Redfern, our members (Gwen, Nell and Bill Hinchey, Carol and Michael Hermesh) returned with lots of positive tournament impressions and some great ideas for raising the profile of tournament play in our own club.

Hopefully we’ll be able to send more players next time.  This is a great way to connect with the sport at a more competitive level.
