Nanaimo Pickleball Tournament Results

Another awesome tourney hosted by Nanaimo Pickleball Club at Oliver Woods facility last weekend, June 25-26, 2016. It is always first class, runs so smoothly; such an awesome facility with 8 indoor courts. I heard that 90% of the competitors are from outside Nanaimo. A big congratulations to our CVPA Winners!

CVPA Winners

Women’s Doubles 3.5 – GOLD – Deborah Houston (Anna Edgar)
Women’s Doubles 3.5 – SILVER – Elizabeth Folk (Margie McWilliam)

Men’s Doubles 3.5 – BRONZE
(Harold Osborne and Rick Folk could have played for Bronze, but there was a miscommunication and they left as they thought they were finished the competition, so the other team won by default).

Mixed Doubles 3.5 – GOLD – Lizzy and Thomas Rauber
Mixed Doubles 3.5 – BRONZE – Deborah Houston and Kurt Nielsen

Men’s Singles 3.5 – SILVER – Thomas Rauber
