Norris Invitational Tournament

This year Sun Lakes Pickleball Club Cottonwood (SLPCC) will host the Ninth Annual Norris Invitational Tournament (NIT), named in honor of Dick and Maureen Norris. They realized pickleball was becoming a popular sport and went on a mission to convince our community to build permanent pickleball courts. It was accomplished in 2012. Now Sun Lakes Pickleball Club Cottonwood has over 400 members.

Our 2023 NIT will play Feb. 27 through March 3. Anyone who resides within Sun Lakes may apply to play. This includes Sun Lakes communities: Sun Lakes Country Club, Cottonwood Palo Verde, IronOaks, and Robson Reserve. Additionally, on a space-available basis, the SLPCC board may invite non-Sun Lakes residents. The NIT may consist of groupings of men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles for age groups 50+ and 75+. We look forward to seeing great competition on the courts!
