1st Annual City of Naples Pickleball tournament big success!!!

First Annual City of Naples Pickleball Tournament

The First Annual City of Naples Pickleball Tournament was held on March 25, 2015 at Fleischmann Park.

Registration was limited to the first 10 men and 10 women and quickly sold out.  The mixed doubles play began at 9 a.m. with each entrant playing 5 games with a different partner selected in a blind draw.  All entrants received a t-shirt and cap with the tourney logo and lunch after the games. Top 3 scoring women and top 3 scoring men received medals. Fleischmann Park staff provided equipment and support for the city-sponsored games.

Tournament directors Jerry Pershing and Sally Hudgins commented that although competition among players was robust, it was the fun and camaraderie that really made the event a success. Because of the great turn-out and positive feedback from the players they are already planning next year’s event.
