The 2019 Picklers for Pickleball Tournament was held in March

100 percent of net proceeds from this tournament were used to start pickleball programs in the PE classes and club programs of Elkhart County middle schools. Funds were used to purchase all necessary equipment for 4 courts at each school approved for assistance (This includes 4 nets, 20 paddles, 100 balls, tape for marking courts, and possibly safety glasses). Goshen Pickleballers will also offer clinics to help the PE teachers learn how to play and teach the game of pickleball to their students.

Here are photos of the presentations to the schools...

Presenting the equipment are representatives of the Goshen Pickleballers, Doug Friesen and Doug Perry.
