Kauai's First Pickleball Tournament A Success

Just completed our first ever Pickleball tournament on Kauai. It was a round robin tournament with eight teams each in an 'A' and 'B' bracket. Tourney was a precursor to our Aloha State Games Senior Olympics Pickleball tournament to be held in two weeks. Wanted to give our players a chance to referee matches so they could prepare for the upcoming sanctioned Senior Games.  Fun pickleball day that was followed by a wonderful pot luck luncheon.
