Groups 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 Fun Tournament – Saturday, March 14  CANCELLED

In view of the ever evolving COVID situation the Executive has decided the prudent thing to do is cancel the March 14th Fun Tournament.  The courts are still open for All Play but there will not be an organized tournament.  It is disappointing to have to take this action but let’s all look forward to lots of Pickling over the summer then bringing our passion for the game back to Silveridge next season.

On Saturday, March 16th Fun Tournaments were held for the 1.0 Group and the 2.0-2.5 Groups.  A total of 34 players participated and you could tell from all the laughter and smiles that everyone had a good time.  Teams were randomly selected by pulling names and the eventual winners were Pat and Perry Hench in the 1.0 Group and David Grimm and Ken Brinkworth in the 2.0 and 2.5 Group.  The winners each received a $20.00 Gift Card at a grocery store.

A big thank you to all of the members that made this tournament a success and we look forward to another fun tournament this Saturday for the 3.0-3.5 Groups and 4.0 Group.
