Our tournament had 173 players this year, up 30% from last year.   There was a total of 179 teams who played 318 matches over the three days.  We estimate that 250 people were at the tournament each day providing a significant economic impact to Albany businesses over the four days. We drew players from all over the Northwest and from as far away as British Columbia, Texas, Tennessee, Georgia and Minnesota.

Thanks to each of the players and spectators for attending the Rally In The Valley. Each of you contributed to making this tournament a success. The pickleball community is a fantastic group and this tournament proved it to us once again. You just don’t meet better people anywhere. The friendships we have made through pickleball are invaluable.

Thanks goes out to the Albany Pickleball Club for all their hard work to arrange, set up and pull this event off. They were always there when help was needed. We can’t forget the people that came in early and stayed late and were there to help us set up, tear down and pitched in daily for anything that was needed.

Special thanks to the referees and line judges who volunteered. We hope you know how important you are to the keeping a tournament running smoothly. We could not have pulled it off without your help.

Again this year the crowd was impressed by the food supplied by Glenda Costain and the West Albany High School Booster Club.
