"We are so fortunate to have Courtside as it is temperature controlled, no sun issue and no wind, which makes for a perfect tournament setting especially this time of year," stated Craig Fraser, President of the Lincoln Hills Pickleball Club.
This three-day event will showcase pickleball players of all levels starting with the beginner/novice on up through 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4,5 divisions. Women's Doubles will play on July 1, Mixed Doubles on July 2 and finally the Men's Doubles will hit the courts on July 3.
"Last year, which was our inaugural year for the Firecracker Frenzy, we had 140 participants and we are expecting and hoping for even more this year," added Fraser.
Games will start at 8 a.m. each day and the medal rounds will begin around noon. There is no fee for spectators and concessions will be available to purchase on-site.
