THANK YOU for your interest in our tournament! Lake City/Columbia County Pickleball has been in existence since Feb 2017. This is our 2nd Winter Blast Pickleball Tournament, but it is the first tournament for many of our local players; all are self-rated. The tournament's primary goal is to have a venue for them to compete and to expose them to higher levels of play, but it is also a fund raiser. Thank you all for participating.

Contact us if you want to be put on our tournament mailing list.
