Thirty-six enthusiastic players took to the courts at KCI and battled for the ultimate team championship and the right to claim first prize, a pickle Christmas tree ornament!
Okay, the actual purpose of the event was to enjoy 5 or 6 games of pickleball, give a donation to student-athletes in need at KCI and raise money and give donations to the Food Bank of Waterloo Region. Mission accomplished!
Sincere thanks to all participants for their enthusiastic play and generosity in support of KCI Athletes and the Food Bank.
Food Bank Totals:
174 lbs of food = 154 meals
$313.00 cash donation = 939 meals
TOTAL = 1093 meals!
Also, thanks to Bob Riehl for his sponsorship and donation of items to our prize table. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see everyone at our next tournament!
Welcome to our POWWR website and the 2018 Provincial Pickleball Championships!!
The Provincial Championships will be held September 14 to 16 at RIM Park in Waterloo.
We have an amazing group of people “powering” their way through each task necessary to ensure the presentation of a great tournament. We hope you will consider volunteering for this very special event. Please see the volunteer tab on the championship website if you are interested in volunteering.
Our actual POWWR association has been on hold the last few months due to organizing the Provincials. We hope to be back up and running in October. We are planning player clinics, officiating/referee clinics and a fun focused tournament for the fall of 2018 and the winter of 2019.
If anyone would like to become a member of POWWR and receive emails directly, please go to our contact tab and send us a note or ask one of our executive to add you to the VIP list for $10.
If you become a VIP member you will also be a voting member with voting rights at the annual general meeting in the late fall. Please read our newsletter and upcoming events page for the latest news and spectacular photos of pickleballers in action!
We hope everyone, player, referee, volunteer or fan will have a very positive experience at this year’s Provincial Championships.
Please join us 14 through 16 as our Waterloo Wellington Region volunteers prove, once again, their willingness to work together to present an outstanding sporting event!
