Pickle Bowl - 2021

I think it goes without saying that we're a fun bunch of people. So in the spirit of the College Bowl and Super Bowl season ... PIVOT will be hosting the "Pickle Bowl" ... get it ... "Pickle ... Bowl".

The format for this event will be a bit different than past events and a bit more fun. This time we're going to have two events ... one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Each event will be a challenge style play where after each game you either move up to the next court if you win, or you go down to the next court if you lose. And then after a full round of games going up or down ... the final match will be the winners from Court #2 playing the winners from Court #1! This will definitely be exciting.

Why two events you might ask ... well, some people are new to pickleball and/or prefer not to be smashed at ... so they'll play in the morning. And some picklers are "no holds barred" ... so they'll play in the afternoon. Also .. and this is the best part ... we have too many members to have just one event ... and that's exciting news ! If you're already signed up great. If not there might just be some room ... if not we'll get you on the waiting list.

To play in the Pickle Bowl and/or to get more information contact Kay Parker via GroupMe.

The Pickle Bowl will be this Saturday ... Jan 23, 2021

The AM tournament will have a warm-up and check-in beginning at 10:00 AM and a start time of 10:30 AM.
