Another Stunning Day of Pickleball Play at the 2020 SSIPA Tournament
The last match of the Aetna sponsored 2020 SSIPA Tournament at Marinette was a nail biter. Those who stayed to watch last night were treated with an amazing, intense ladies doubles match with our own Sylvia Csabon and Susan Anfinson defeating Diane Baumgartner and Carolyn Bagley in a tiebreaker 15-13 score! Sylvia and Susan won the gold for women’s doubles 65+, in the 4.5 skill level.
Also taking home gold in women’s doubles from Sun City Pickleball Club (in bold) were:
Diana Graham & Martha Nause, 65+, 3.0 skill; Jane Powell & Betty Sullentrup, 65+, 4.0 skill; Michelle Orton & Charlotte Peters, 70+, 3.0 skill; and Jan Hodgson and Karen Madison, 70+, 4.0 skill.
Winning Silver in the women’s doubles:
Diana Colonna & Bev Jenkins, 60+, 3.0; Gay Jones & Dianne Hill, 65+, 3.0; and Terri Smiley & Linda Haney, 70+, 3.0.
Winning Bronze in the women’s doubles:
Michele Kiesling & Jill Kurkowski, 60+, 3.5; and Carole Hutchinson & Jean Ward, 70+, 3.5.
Men’s Singles were also playing yesterday and we had two club members earn the bronze medal: Glenn Jones, 50+, 3.0 skill; and Michael Kapp, 65+, 3.0 skill.
Congratulations to all Club member who won medals over the last 3 days! Also a huge “THANK YOU” to all of the volunteers who committed to show up and work to help make this tournament another successful, well run event. Several tournament players paid compliments to our Tournament Director, Donna Holick and our clubs board members over the three day tournament. Again, thank you, as this event could not run smoothly without you!
