From Lawana Johnson:
Players at the recent Nevada Senior Games were among the first in the country to play skyscraper pickleball. They competed high in the sky at the Las Vegas Plaza Hotel & Casino on 16 beautiful new pickleball courts built on the top of an upper floor of the hotel. Alongside the courts in a huge, 70,000 square foot area is also an olympic size swimming pool and lounge area, including cabanas, hot tub, bar, food, etc. It is one of the first of its kind in the country and likely a precursor to similar new sites that will built on top of skyscrapers as the sport continues to grow in popularity and be recognized for its appeal to its customers by the hotel and entertainment industry.
Dick & Lawana Johnson stayed at the luxurious hotel and reported it was a very unique experience hitting pickle balls on a roof top surrounded by other skyscrapers. They said it also seemed a bit disconcerting to look over the side and down to the ground far below!
Dick brought home Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals in 75 Mixed Doubles, Mens Doubles, & Singles.
