Four players from the Boise area recently competed in the Thousand Trails Pickleball Mania tournament which took place from July 11-15 in Sunriver Oregon. This was the 10th year of the tournament. In honor of the 10th year of the tournament the courts were all resurfaced and repainted. So much fun to play on courts dedicated to Pickleball!
On Tuesday the 12th Andrea Baerwald and Maryanne Batten battled to a Bronze medal in the Women’s 3.0 bracket. This was the first pickleball tournament for either of them so they felt good coming away with some hardware.
On Wednesday the 13th Kevin and Maryanne and John and Andrea Baerwald competed in the 3.0 mixed doubles. At the end of the day (and I do mean the end of a long day) Kevin and Maryanne managed to win a Silver Medal with Andrea and John taking the Bronze.
It was a great time. There are a lot of things to do in the Bend/Sunriver area including the fabulous Pine Nursery Pickleball Courts in Bend. It is the reporter’s recommendation that you mark your calendar now for next year’s tournament!
