Tournament Reminder!

The Bend Pickleball Club is hosting its first annual tournament...named, interestingly, the First Annual Bend Pickleball Tournament!  Dates are August 3-5, 2012. Location is Juniper Park in the heart of beautiful Bend! If you play in Bend or are coming to Bend during those times and have not signed up, we can only think of two reasons!

1.  You are nervous about playing in a pickleball tournament. This is a reasonable concern but this is intended to be and is DESIGNED to be a VERY friendly tournament. This in part is why it's a skill-level-only tournament. So even if you are a relative beginner you can count on only playing against OTHER people who are relative beginners as well. More experienced players can count on only playing against other more experienced players...and so on. If you are unsure of your skill level, you can ask for an evaluation at any open play session or send an email to and we will help you decide what's the right level for you. It isn't that hard, we promise! And you DO want to play in the VERY FIRST USAPA-Sanctioned BEND TOURNAMENT....don't you? Something to tell the grandkids, right?

2.  All other reasons...other commitments, your dog is sick, you won't be here, the tax-collectors have repossessed your pickleball paddles....and these are all DENIED! Sign up!

The registration form is on a link to your right. Do it is limited!
