While the pickleball tournament season in southern Arizona is behind us, six couples from the SBR Pickleball Association made the trek to play in the USAPA West Regional Tournament held at the Darling Tennis Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The group consisted of teams playing in 3.0 and 3.5 Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Doubles. While what happens in Las Vegas typically stays in Las Vegas, Ken and Lupe Cook brought home medals, earning the bronze medals in the Mixed Doubles 65+ 3.0 event. The other teams that competed in the tournament included the men’s doubles teams of Chris Jerman and Gary Grasso, Mike Fielding and Bob Hills, Tim McCauley and Ken Cook. The women’s teams were Debbie McCauley and Sally Grasso and Lupe Cook and Carol Fielding. The mixed teams in addition to the Cooks were Debbie and Tim McCauley and Sally and Gary Grasso. In addition to playing the tournament, the six couples had a good time with a welcoming cocktail party hosted by the McCauleys and several nice meals. There is also a rumor that at least one couple was seen at the slot machines. In all, everyone had a good time on this road trip.
