PPP PLAYERS RESULTS
A Intermediate Pickleball Tournament was held at the Kroc Center in Green Bay on March 16th. With 12 players competing in a round robin, with 7 players playing in their first tournament ever, and only one brave female (Joan Schneider). Some friendly games were being played with players laughing, but a few paddles being dropped on the floor with frustration. We had 2 players tie for 3rd place with 7 wins and a tie with 44 differential points. The 2 players Jim Ekness and Russ Tapley played one play-off game of skinny singles 11 win by 1 with rally scoring. Jim went home with the victory.

An advanced player Pickleball Tournament was held at the Kroc on Thursday, April 1, 2021, with 12 players taking part in a round robin.

On a day that began with something we all need--RAIN--organizers asked why did it have to happen today?? Well with a dedicated group of volunteers and court sweepers, play was only delayed for about 90 minutes and then "GAME ON" for all!!
Morning saw 20 intermediate fantastic women players vying for the 4 top spots on the podium What great games were played and enjoyed by many. Crowds stayed for much of the sun filled day to cheer on the intermediate players and then the 20 advanced women who again played their hearts out for the chance to play in the final round robin of three games for the 1st thru 4th place finish!

GREEN BAY PICKLEBALL CHALLENGE:
THE BATTLE OF THE AGES
On a day marked with high humidity and eventually lots of rain, a pickleball tournament with teams being defined by the combined ages of the two partners playing with the goal of getting the most points rather than wins had everyone playing some really competitive games and having a boat load of fun--almost needed that boat because of the rain over the weekend!!
