Games were competitive and clearly fun as more than 120 players converged on the MARC for Park City Pickleball Club’s second annual July Members’ Tournament. The July 5 event began at 8 a.m. and continued until sundown. It drew a record 48 players at the popular 3.5 level alone, and also included the club’s first-ever event for juniors.
Park City Council member Nann Worel gave the opening remarks for the tournament, which was played in a mixed-doubles format.
The July Members’ Tournament was coordinated by Jenny Dorsey and powered by a group of volunteers who arrived early to set up, check in, and tabulate the scores. The group included Rhoda Stauffer, Patti Peters, Lisa Mosher, Carol Hollander, Donna, Trish Harbers, Kathy Leitzke, Pattiann and Girard Andres, Teresa McMillan, Carol Wexler, Kathy Moder, Jay Zorzy, Valerie Schkade, Doris Schmidt, Marie Thrasher, Richard Wells and Michele Henry, and Jennifer Schwam.
Pool captains kept the tournament on track; they included Jody Whitesides, Franco DeSantis, Paul Cassell, and Jim Jones. Jody Whitesides spent the entire day as either a pool captain or referee for the medal rounds.
