Yakima Applefest Pickleball Tournament
What a great tournament and a big THANK YOU to all that volunteered. We could not do this without great volunteer support. We had 204 competitors over the three days. The raffle prizes were amazing and with excellent tournament management by Kathy and Pickleball is Great the club will add around $5,000 to our savings.
We are planning to have Applefest again next year. We’re planning on more fun and we are booking food trucks now! And we plan to to have a 75+ bracket next year by popular request.
Club play at Franklin Park
We encourage everyone to use the free website called Playtime Scheduler where you will find planned play times and events. AND you can add your own play time looking for players to sign up. That could be for drills or play as you wish. This is not for scheduling a court – courts may not be reserved. But, this helps us all to get together and to know when we might find people to play with. If you see a time you plan to added, click on that event add your name.
When courts are full it is everyone’s responsibility to politely explain how court rotation works, at Franklin as well as about any other pickleball facility in the country. No camping out on a court, everyone gets to play one game and then relinquish the court and get back in line.
