THANK YOU! This is a non-sanctioned tournament. With this being a new venue, this is the first tournament for many of the participants from the "local" area; most are self-rated. Lake City Pickleball has been in existence since Feb 2017 with the majority of the players having played less than 6 months. This tournament's primary goal is to have a venue for them to compete and to expose them to a higher level of play, but it is also a fund raiser. Thank you all for participating.
If you were interested but didn't get in, let me know and I will put you on the mailing list for next time! Cell: 386 292-3787 Email: PickleballLakeCity@gmail.com Website: http://www.LakeCityFLPickleball.com/
