On Saturday, November 12th, Rally Niagara hosted its first ever Pickleball tournament. It was a coed event and featured players locally and as far away as Rochester. The game play was intense in both the Novice and Intermediate groupings. 25 teams participated. Many close games were played in the group pool round.
The longest match of the day could have been a 25 minute marathon in the Novice pool 1 featuring Jill McKinnon & son, Ryan McKinnon winning 11-10 over eventual gold medal champions, Hetram Sookdeo & Navin Agrawal.
We look forward to hosting more pickleball tournament in the future.
