Ladies pickleball tourney is Aug. 26 in Mount Shasta

Staff reports

The inaugural  Siskiyou Ladies  Pickleball  Tournament, scramble-style, will be held on  Wednesday, Aug. 26. The event begins at 9 a.m. at the new Mount Shasta Resort courts.

People enjoy the dedicated pickleball court near Mount Shasta Resort.

Organizers hope that women from both north and south county who have taken a liking to the sport will attend for the purely recreational/social play day.  

'This will be the second “intentionally small” tournament held to promote play and raise funds for the new court. Scramble proceeds from the entry fee ($10), the sale of brand new hot pink visors with the Club logo, and a 25/25/50 raffle will continue to fill the court coffers.

Spectators are welcome, just bring a mask and a chair and keep social distance.

Contact Susan Waller at (530) 859-3294 for more information.

Pickleball is a growing sport in Richmond thanks at least in part to the efforts of Pam and Greg Hilligoss.
