A USA Pickleball representative traveled in from Des Moines, IA to join us, we had donations from Selkirk Sport and the Raquetman Store in Des Peres to raffle off to athletes in attendance, and beautiful donated court space at New Town Pickleball, so our local pickleball community was very supportive and invested in this event!
