2018 PPP's TOURNAMENTS IN REVIEW!!
MISSION EDUCATION PICKLEBALL TOURNAMENT
For the 3rd year in a row Tim & Lynn Majewski hosted the "Mission Education Pickleball Games" to benefit children in Kenya!!
Fantastic group supporting a great need--thank you to all who were able to participate and those who also contributed financially!!
Sue Bodilly (PPP) and Steve Huffman (Oshkosh) share a first-place tie, and fight over the first-place candy, in the 4.0 round robin Mission Education Pickleball Tournament in Oshkosh.
Another great Kaleidoscope Pickleball Tournament at the YMCA in Oshkosh. With 4 teams playing for 1st place, not one team dominated the tournament. Some amazing wins and unfortunate loses all day long. But, for the second time in 2 years Green Bay took 1st place.
Pictures don't lie!! Some of PPP's best!! L-R
Tim Majwski, Kathy Mertz, Sue Bodilly & Larry Horkman
Barb Mroz and Kris Fry participated in the Geezer Meister Pickleball Tournament just outside of The Villages Florida. Competition was tough and really intense with two rain delays. After a round robin event, Barb and Kris finished in 3rd place with just three points separating 1st and 3rd place! Great job PPP players!!

BADGER STATE GAMES
WISCONSIN SENIOR OLYMPICS AUGUST 24-26, 2018
Many pickleball players associated with the Packerland Pickleball Players participated in some pretty tough and very warm / humid conditions to demonstrate their skills at "America's Fastest Growing Sport." Teams played in men's and women's doubles and mixed categories and came home with hardware showing their skill and sportsmanship!
Bob Fry & Dan Cooper defended their gold from last year and for the first time participated in the 70 year age bracket and went 9-0 in taking the gold medal, 1st place in men's doubles
Kathy Mertz and Sue Bodilly participated in a highly competitive group (50-54 year age group) and secured the gold medal, 1st place in women's doubles.
MiMi Thiede and Trudy Toft, continuing PPP's success, participated in a very competitive group (65-69 year age group) and secured the silver medal, 2nd place in women's doubles.
Sue Bodilly and Bob Fry got off to a rocky start but finished strong beating the 1st place team in the group (50-55 year age group) and secured the silver medal, 2nd place in mixed doubles.
Congrats to everyone who played and
looking forward to a continued great
showing in the future!!
