As you can see from the picture, Bev Krueger and Dick Johnson, gold medal winners of the 3.5 skill bracket, 75 plus age division had a wonderful time playing together. This was a huge win at a huge tournament where pickleball competitors from all over the country came in search of gold. Congratulations Bev and Dick!
Sheila Parkinson of Sun Lakes and Tim Kuss of Colorado have become quite the seasoned pair winning their second gold medal out of two attempts. The combined speed of this pair is awe inspiring. There is no place safe on the court to hit. Everything comes back. Congratulations Sheila on another outstanding win!
After six hours of battling on the court, David Zapatka and Don Simmons ran into an impenetrable storm when they played the bronze medal match against the California Belmonte brothers. The brothers were like a wall. Nothing could get past them. Although they had their sights set on a higher finish, a bronze medal was an excellent result in a tough regional field.
