Val played in the women's doubles, but she and her partner Gena were slightly out-matched by some very competitive teams from Kings Point in Sun City. Val didn't sign up for the mixed doubles but ended up playing with two different men whose partners were injured or had to leave early. She played very well and won a match before rain moved in to end the tournament before the mixed doubles champion could be determined.
My partner, Donna, and I were also doing well, but we'll never know who the champs would have been. Guess it would have been us ; )
The best news was that we raised nearly $500 for HART along with boxes of food and toys for the animals AND a couple of pets were adopted by folks at the tournament. That made it all worthwhile.
There was also a raffle with great prizes. The main prize was $70 in restaurant gift certificates for two winners followed by a dozen Pickleball balls with a 25 dollar gift certificate to Ace Hardware. It was a very lucky day as we won one of the restaurant certificate packages and also the balls and Ace Hardware stuff. Must be the clean living.....
And thanks to Donna and Rich for putting on a great tournament. Well done.
