This does sound fun! Unfortunately we are in need of volunteers to pick up and run with all of these great ideas! We will have a volunteer sign up day coming soon, hopefully on the day of our Super Volunteer Cindy's Farewell.
Aside from the annual APC Open Pickleball Tournament, I would love to offer all APC members (both tournament and non-tournament) an opportunity to compete in a more social and fun event, which I tentatively will call the APC Pickleball Olympics. I would like to propose the following suggestions in hopes of garnering board approval and to foster more ideas as they relate to event format and actual events:
1. Attendees will participate in teams to encourage camaraderie and shorten the time that it will take to complete a large-scale event like this.
2. Possible events:
a. Set up a Swiftnet blindfolded. Fastest time wins.
b. Identify your paddle from a stack of paddles blindfolded.
c. Serving a pickleball into buckets that are positioned at various locations on the opposite courts and that have various point values assigned to them.
d. Pickleball costume / fashion contest
e. Regulation doubles game but with your off-hand
f. Three-legged race to place balls in each of the buckets that are attached to each court. Fastest time wins.
