What is a Dink and Dine Event?

It is a tournament open to all levels of play and the players come from all around the area to enter. Each month the format might vary. Sign up to enjoy the fun! Each player also brings a dish to share.... so you can play a little, eat a little, play a little..... you get the idea. The top three teams or individuals in each level are recognized with the top team or person receiving a traveling trophy.

Fun is always had by all!! A special thank you goes out to Jill Perry, who is the amazing organizer for the events. What a success they have been!

  • The Advanced level will always be partner play.  Some partner play will be mixed and some will be any sex partner; notification of which type will be in the individual fliers that go out each month.
These dates have been approved by the Goshen Park Department, and have been set taking into consideration all local tourneys that have published their dates as of this announcement.  Mother's Day is May 14, but no other date worked.  Hopefully we will still have lots of participation!
