The Cal Am Pickleball Tournament 2020
The morning temperatures were very cold, and lots of coffee was given out of the Snack Shack! But …
It was great to see awesome pickleball competition throughout the three days and so many spectators cheering the players on. Mesa Regal players did not make the medal rounds, but they had some amazing games and some got very close to the medal rounds, after many, many, non-stop games! We were all so proud of your great play and sportsmanship on the court!!
For Results and pictures (to follow soon) click on the Tournaments tab. Thank you to Dave Letemplier for taking over the Photographer duties for this Tournament.
SOMETHING NEW! If you are a seriously competitive/tournament player you might want to check out the new GTR Training Guide that a few of our top ranking players have put together for you information. Find it on the Training Tab at the top of the page. Thanks Lionel, Michael and Jake!

Upcoming Events for the 2019-20 Season
Next Up –
Tennis/Pickleball Fun Day
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd, 2020
8:30 or 10:00 Sign-Up groups with Pizza Luncheon and Entertainment to follow at the Sports Court @ 11:30 AM
THE TENNIS CLUB is thrilled this year to be hosting the 2020 Funday, it is a morning of tennis and pickleball. It is a great opportunity for us as pickleball and tennis players to introduce our game respectively to each other. Remember that this is NOT A COMPETITION, just an opportunity to try something new, meet new friends, and simply just to have fun! The morning will be split into two groups starting at 08:30 and 10:00 and finish with a Pizza luncheon at the Sports Court area at 11:30.
In each morning group, we will partner up, two pickleball and two tennis players and put you on either a tennis or pickleball court. Of course, if you are on the tennis court, the tennis people will introduce you to the game. If on the pickleball court, the pickleball people will introduce their partners to the game. After 45 minutes, a whistle will blow, you stay with the same partner and switch to the opposite sport court for an intro to the new sport.
Remember, it is a chance to put a paddle/racquet in your hand and learn to play the similarities and differences of each game.
Sign-Up sheets for playing in this Funday will be at these two locations.
- Tennis Sky Box for tennis players
- Pickleball Patio for pickleball players
Sign up early as we are limited to 24 pickleball and 24 tennis players.
****YELLOW Sign-Up sheets will be out Friday, February 7th by 5:30pm.****
DEADLINE FOR SIGNING UP IS FEBRUARY 18th, 2020.
Racquets for pickleball players and paddles for tennis players will be supplied on the courts. You could borrow from a friend not playing prior to this event but not necessary.
