Who Brought Home the Pickles???

2018 Picklebowl Challenge & Picnic

(Click on the Picture Above for More)

Our own local SW Club team rose to the challenge and defended the St. Cloud Challenge Pickleball Bowl!! The score was a very close 7 to 5 and our brilliant team included Jackie Faegre, Adriana Astbury, Bob Korn, Dennis Gallaher, Tom St. Aubin, Bridget McMullin, Laurie Hynes, Tracy McKibben, Jim Rennich, Beth Burgan, Jeanette June and Bob Campbell. Great job team!

It was another epic duel between two friendly adversaries – the SW Metro Pickleball Club and St. Cloud’s Northern Paddles Pickleball Club! A huge thanks to Northern Paddles for making the trek down to the city on a rather gloomy, rainy day. Players scrambled to find an indoor facility and thankfully Champions Hall was available, where the players battled it out.

The celebration continued at the SW Metro Club picnic by beautiful Lake Riley. The gloom dissipated so chefs Doug and Tom cooked up the burgers and hot dogs and the prestigious Pickle Bowl was awarded to Dennis Gallaher on behalf of the Club. There’s no such thing as too much Pickleball, so fun play continued up at the courts.

The Northern Paddles Pickleball Club will be hosting us in September to try to win back the Pickle Bowl so let a Board Member know if you’d like to play.

Paddles up for the Picnic committee – Dianna St. Aubin, Barb Sharpe and CJ Williams – many thanks!!
