The Second Annual Mid South Regional USAPA Tournament

The recently completed second annual Mid-South Regional Tournament, held in Baton Rouge, is a growing success.  One hundred forty participants gathered for the three day tournament.  Over 100 of those attended the pre-tournament social which featured jambalaya, numerous door prizes, a Cajun humorist, a raffle, and the naming of the winner of the 2nd Mid-South Pickleball Pioneer award.

Participants ranged in age from 13-83.  As is usual for pickleball players, all had a great time.  You can click on the following link to see the results.  Mid South Tournament Results

Asked about the growth from just over 100 last year to 140 this year, Mid-South Regional ambassador Tom Burkhart noted, “If we keep growing like this, we will need to find more courts in the future. 

The winner of the Pickleball Pioneer award will be highlighted on the Mid-South website in mid July.
