2019 Christmas Turkey Gobbler Tournament Attracted Big Flock of Pickleball Players

Twenty-six SPC members, a handful of volunteers and numerous spectators enjoyed a morning of Christmas pickleball at the UNISUS International School in Summerland.  Thirteen teams competed in two divisions, demonstrating once again that this sport is not only great exercise, but also fun and entertaining.

This time around we had the privilege of being joined by students of the UNISUS school who not only cheered on the players but also spoiled us with yummy baked goods.  Proceeds from their cookie sale and our entrance fee were donated to a single mother refugee from Sudan, adding Christmas cheer to the occasion.

The Summerland Pickleball Club has conducted five tournaments this year.  Many thanks to the organisers, volunteers, our sponsors, club members and visitors who make these memorable events.

Warm greetings from the SPC Board to all members and friends of the club.  Enjoy a safe and joyous Festive Season!
