2024 Memorial Shootout: Another Beautiful Day for EPPA

Andre Francis posted 17 days ago

Hello to my favorite demographic of people, Pickleball Players!

I hope you have all been surviving the heat and enjoying the beautiful courts all over our wonderful region. It is once again time for our centerpiece tournament of the summer, and this year we've decided to make it our Memorial Tournament. This will be our third year of hosting this memorial tournament, and we miss those loved ones we've shared our courts with. A special shout-out to those still with us on this ethereal plane but who have injuries or other health conditions, currently occupying the appreciated role of cheering (and sometimes jeering) from the sidelines.

  "The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." - Nelson Mandela 

Before I go into the details of the tournament, I would like to share the names of central members of our pickleball community who have passed before us:

  • Jim Whitford
  • Helen Pappas
  • Janie Martin
  • Judy Shapiro
