2022 Tournaments

Dink-a-Thon Playoff
Cesar Chavez Community Center - November 17, 2022

TheCongratulations to Raymond G Sanchez dink players!  In a perfect weather tournament (indoors), they defeated the Cesar Chavez dinkers in a hotly contested competition.  Well, maybe winning 21 matches to 11 matches isn't that hotly contested but many of the matches went down to the wire.  Thanks to all who participated and congratulations to Raymond G and their fearless venue coordinator leader, Eva: thanks for all your work.  Side note:  Cesar Chavez players are not taking this lightly and a revised challenge sent out to all the other indoor venues.

On a given Saturday, you will play everyone at your net. Players at the net will be arranged by their overall points (after the first Saturday of play). The more points a player has, the higher up on the ladder they will climb.The goal of a pickleball ladder, is to be at the top. Think of it like king of the mountain!

ABQ Pickleball Club and ACA Pickleball Club conducted a doubles-ladder tournament for March 12 at the Manzano Mesa Courts. On behalf of ABQ Pickleball Club, we would like to thank the players, spectators, and speakers who attended the 2022 NM Kidney Foundation Benefit Pickleball Tournament. The excellent speakers not only gave us a lot of important information we can use to care for our kidneys, but also we learned how to help those in need of kidney transplants. There were 48 women’s doubles players, 52 men’s doubles players and 72 mixed doubles players in the ladder tournament with prizes drawn randomly. All donations received went to the NM Kidney Foundation (approximately $2,500), and we thank everyone for their generosity.
