With tournament season fast approaching we thought it would be a good idea to have our own LPA tournament. The tournament will be mixed doubles. Saturday April 5th will be 50 to 59 and Saturday April 12th will be 60 and up. There will be no scheduled pickleball sessions on April 5th and 12th because of the tournament.
Each team must have at least one LPA member. Any member under age 50 may participate in the 50-59 group. Both tournaments will be limited to 8 teams. Cost will be $10.00 per team. Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 teams. We will have a ref for every match. Matches are 2 out of 3 games to 11 points, win by 2. It will be double elimination. Elimination rounds will be 1 game to 15 win by 2.
One rule I want to make clear: if you go outside LPA for a partner, they must be age appropriate. If a 60 and up LPA member wants to play with a 50 something LPA member they must play in the 50 something tournament. If a 60 and up player plays in the 50 something tournament, he or she can not get another partner and play again in the 60 something tournament.
