2010 Nationals


Led by Hilary Marold’s (Corpus Christy, TX) four gold medals, Mid-South Region participants in the USAPA National Tournament (Surprise, AZ) showed that they could play with the ‘big guys’.  Marold captured gold in Women’s Doubles (age group), Mixed Doubles, Women’s Singles, and open Women’s Doubles.

Christie Borne (Houston, TX) earned silver in Women’s Singles (age group) while Jan Pasternak (Houston) took bronze in the same event.  Sandy McPherson (AR) won bronze in her age group singles.  Rich and Ann Peterson (TX) also won bronze in their age group Mixed Doubles competition.

About 20 players from Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, and Louisiana, enjoyed the competition as well as the usual social interaction that pickleball is known for.  Contacts and friends were made.  Participating in a regional or national tournament such as this gives one the opportunity to see other styles of play, not to mention facing players you have not played before.  We are proud of the Mid-South group who participated and look forward to hearing their stories from ‘tournament week’.
