Upcoming Pickleball Events Sun City Rally Challenge - August Something a little different for those of you that like a little competition. The rally challenge will be a tournament utilizing rally scoring in a similar manner to MLP. We will tweak a little to make it easier to follow, but every point will count, only one serve per side and games will be to 21 points! We will do an afternoon of rec play prior to the tournament so you can hone your rally skills, and learn all the rules. But, this is a fast paced and fun variation of traditional pickleball. Plenty of time to pick a partner, we will do this the last weekend of August, men’s and women’s on Saturday, mixed on Sunday. Of course, there will be medals to be won! Keep your eyes peeled for more information in July.
