Yesterday was the Women’s Round Robin Pickleball Tournament here at Village at Deaton Creek. There were 16 women playing a total of 5 games each with the top 4 high scorers battling in out in a 15 point match.
Round Robin tournaments were computer matched so that the participants played with different partners and against different players on one of four pickleball courts.
The tournament began at 9am and was over by 11:30am, so things moved along pretty nicely.
Larry, Gonzalo and I are on the pickleball committee and have been planning for this events for weeks with registration and scheduling. We are writing procedures on how to carry out a pickleball round robin tournament as we go. Yesterday was a fun and interesting day!
The title match was worthy of it’s name with the game very close all the way to the finish. I was along court side as the photographer and got some nice pictures showing how engaged the players were. They were “in the zone” and the spectators were too.
The top photo on this post is of the two winners Bev Pomplun and Jane Ann Buturff and you can see they are fully engaged.
I took this photo of the final four before the match as they were beaming with anticipation.
