It’s the NIT and you’re invited to join the fun – March 5

 

Irene D’Aloisio, President

Although it’s too late to sign up and play, you can still come watch the fun in the annual Norris Invitational Tournament (NIT) beginning on March 5, 2018, at 8:00 a.m. This annual pickleball tournament is held at the Cottonwood pickleball courts in Sun Lakes. And maybe, just maybe, your favorite pickleball player or your next-door neighbor might be participating. It’s free to watch and cheer! You probably already know that pickleball is exciting and high-energy, and it’s the fastest-growing sport in America. And have you been curious about it? Then come watch the tournament and see what all the hype is about.

This double-elimination and round robin event has both mixed doubles and doubles and encompasses five rating categories for the various skill levels. And it’s just for the Sun Lakes community. It’s a huge event, and over 100 entries are expected this year. There will be lots of pickleball play and several days to see it all, since it goes from March 5 through March 9, or thereabouts, with a rain-day scheduled on March 10.

You’ll have a super time at the NIT, whether you just want to sit in the sun or you’ve come to cheer on your favorite team. Or maybe you want to learn a little something about pickleball. Come on! Join us for the fun! Need more information? Email us at [email protected]
