Club members Jeannine and Kelly McKinna won gold at the Mesa Regal Pickleball Championships 3.0 Mixed Doubles. In a field of 17 pairs the McKinnas were so dominant they did not lose a game winning the final match in very interesting and challenging fashion, 11-0, 12-10. Well done Jeannine and Kelly! Your presence in our club enriches all of us.
Dianne Zimmerman and David Zapatka, the “Z” team, put on a very entertaining finals match going undefeated through the 4.0 Mixed Doubles. The last match of the night under the lights drew a crowd of brave souls who stayed to the bitter end of a long day. The final match did not disappoint as the Z team came from behind down 8-3 in the first game to win 11-9 and down 10-1 in the second game to win in nail-biting fashion 12-10. Congratulations Dianne and Dave; exciting Pickleball at its best!
