Dear LPC members,
It was a great week-end of exciting competition during our 2023 Club Classic Members Tournament. Thank you to the 100+ players for entering the tournament and playing with such enthusiasm and good sportsmanship, and for everyone’s patience on Sunday as we waited out the rain. Thank you to the tournament committee, Bob Helder, Mike Zolik, and John Gabalis, and to everyone who helped dry the courts, assisted with set-up and take-down, and worked at the table to keep things running smoothly. Special thanks to John Gabalis for all of the “behind the scenes” prep for the tournament, and for being an awesome announcer!
Be sure to check out our Lakeshore Pickleball Club Facebook page to see pictures and results of the tournament.
