Registration for the RIFAC/QCPC indoor tournament, the “Paddle Wheel Tournament on the Mississippi” is now open on www.Pickleballtournaments.com. The tournament will be held on Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14 using both gyms (6 courts) at RIFAC. The Friday format will be similar to last year’s tournament- men and women’s round robin -no partners needed- 3 skill levels. Also on Friday there will be a men and women’s singles tournament. Saturday will be for players 2.5 and above (intermediate and advanced) and you bring your own partner. There will be men’s, women’s and mixed doubles on Saturday with 2 skill levels.
When you go out to the site, go to Tournaments, then Future Tournaments. Scroll down about half way as they are listed by date. Click on register. There is all kinds of information about the tournament on the different tabs. I do suggest you click on forms and then on the left hand side you will see a “click Here” to see the tournament brochure. This will tell you what you need to know.
The cost is $20 for QCPC members and $30 for non-members. You can sign up for as many events as you like on each day. There is also a T-Shirt for sale for $20. All proceeds go to Phase II of the Mel McKay outdoor Pickleball courts in Rock Island so the monies spent is tax deductible.
Volunteers will be needed to help with the tournament. You can play in the tournament and volunteer. Please let me know if you want to help by e-mailing me at email@example.com.
Even though the tournament is over two months away I think it will fill up fast so register early. If you have any questions call me, Sharon Walters, 309-799-3856, or better yet e-mail me at the above e-mail address.
See you on the courts.
