Helen Pappas Memorial Tournament

Elena Arnold posted 23 days ago
Helen was one of the first people to take up the game of pickleball in Erie.  She was around 80 years old.  She played  at the Glenwood YMCA three times a week.  It was there where she was given the name “Pickleball Queen”. She kept playing until the pandemic hit at the age of 88.  She also attended Nautilus twice a week as well as the Senior Center where she was an avid pinochle player.  Helen was also a swimming teacher at the old Suburban Y in her younger days.  Overall, she was quite an active person who enjoyed life to the fullest and she is deeply missed by all who knew her.

Registration closes tomorrow at 7 pm. Due to the ordering of food and creating of brackets, we are unable to extend this deadline. If you are thinking that you want to play, find your partner and sign up by tomorrow! We are looking forward to seeing so many of you on the courts.
