 First ever CPC Tournament a success!  

Tournament in full swing

On Saturday, November 24, 2012, the Calgary Pickleball Club had its first ever club tournament and needless to say, a good time was had by al

The event was coordinated by Bev Walker and Val Calon who with the help of volunteers, Kevin Doucet, Sue McClure, Elena Menn and Peter Walker ensured that the event ran smoothly.


What also made the event noteworthy and a treat were the numerous baked goods provided by a number of players.

Thanks are also extended to Starbucks for providing us with coffee.

Twenty four players signed up for the event and each team participated in five sets of games.

The purpose of the event was to have fun and socialize and that we did.

Are we winning yet?


Social event as well

The highlight of the day was the wine and cheese and gherkin wind-up party and prizes presentation hosted by Val and Kerry.

The father-son team of Bob and Brandon Ellis took Gold and the Silver medal was taken by Dom Saliani and Juraj Boda. There is still a dispute about the award to Diana Blud for best socks of the day but no one listens to Dom anyway.

Val Calon won the award for the most original awards creator and presenter. The medals given out were pickleballs which Val had spray painted gold and silver and tied with ribbons to go around the neck. Prizes of wine and gherkins were also awarded to a number of participants.


Another purpose for this event was to raise money. After costs were met, the club was able to donate $145 and two flats of water to the West Hillhurst Community Association. They were very pleased and surprised with this donation.

The event went so well that there was talk of another tournament to be followed, of course, by another pickle themed party!


And the winners are
