Our Eden Prairie Schooner Days Pickleball Rodeo event forged a successful Partnership with 79 participants thanks to the efforts of the Eden Prairie Lion’s Club, SWMPBC, and the City of Eden Prairie. The Goal of adding a non-tournament Pickleball event to the long-standing Eden Prairie Schooner Days schedule was accomplished, and very favorable feedback was provided by Attendees and Volunteers to both the Eden Prairie Lions Club, SWMPBC and the City of Eden Prairie. And it was decided to add the Pickleball Rodeo to next year’s Schooner Days activities!
With a brand new surface and pretty blue pickleball lines, they are ready to play! Start the dinkin’!
Great turnouts for the recent grand opening ceremonies at Roundhouse Park in Chanhassen and at Washington Park in Richfield. The courts are officially open for play!
For the past 11 weeks several area players have been competing in an independent ladder league. That league wrapped up on Saturday with a picnic and a triple-elimination rally tournament at Pioneer Park. Mohammed (Mo) Ali and Eric Wong won the tournament.
A total of 48 full-time players competed in the league, with trophies awarded to Gold, Silver, and Bronze division winners. Eric Wong won the gold, Don Harper the silver, and Deb Lind the bronze.
A good time was had by all. Winners are:
Liz Dubisar and Kren McManus
Nicholas Astbury and LeEllen Lane
Lee Carlson and Kevin Butcher
Brian Astbury and Nick Astbury
