What level are you?
Gold, Silver, Bronze ...
Fifty-three members of Hamilton Pickleball competed in a wonderful tournament hosted by the Kitchener Waterloo Pickleball Club on April 12/13. Kudos to Patricia Archambault for doing such a great job! Hamilton players enjoyed meeting eighty players from a variety of other communities and learning how pickleball was growing in their cities. Although it was a competitive tournament and everyone was attempting to perform at their highest level, the most important take-away was the tremendous comradery displayed by people who play pickleball. There was much enjoyment and laughter.
In addition to taking away great memories, Pickleball Hamilton took away the most medals. In the Mixed Doubles Open (any age) Gary Davies and Marilyn Prowse won the Gold medal. They displayed excellent skills and worked in great tandem. Marilyn also brought home a Bronze medal when she paired with Cathy Johnston in the Women’s Doubles Open Division. Congratulations to Marilyn, Gary and Cathy.
In the Men’s Doubles Open division, the competition was exceedingly high-level. Some of the best teams in South-Western Ontario were present. All of the Hamilton teams played very well, resulting in two of our duos meeting in the Bronze Medal game; John Boyle and Gary Davies were matched against Jeff and Derek Morgan. It was a great match with the Morgans coming out on top. Congratulations to John and Gary on a great tournament and Derek and Jeff on winning the Bronze Medal.
In the Men’s Doubles (55+) Kam Keyhan and John Sullivan played well and used their 3rd shot soft routine to capture the Silver Medal. Well done Kam and John.
