The First Annual "Pickleball Survivors Tournament"

May 8,9 and 10, 2012

Sponsored by Wells Fargo Advisors and Mr. Pickles

Tournament Director - Helmut Koehne

After three months of preparation and three days of hard fought competition, our Pickleball Survivors tournament has come to an end. The finals were played in front of a standing room only crowd of better than 60 enthusiastic fans. Nobody left the beautiful pickleball complex until the Well Fargo Advisors Cup was presented by our sponsor Rob Brunst of WFA, to the Pickleball Survivors: Cal Meissen and Andrea Mayorga.

A field of 66 players had entered the games. Most were eliminated due to losses on the court, several had to withdraw because of injuries received prior to and during the tournament, making it truly a Pickleball Survivors tournament.
